My father drove this Provan brockway truck for $3.75 an hour in 1955 in order to save up enough money to buy his first backhoe (The backhoe cost $3,500 brand new!)

Here are my uncles Earl & Brud Allen with Brockway Salesman Jack Kellogg and their wives in front of the Brockway Factory in 1971. My mother was an Allen. Her father Ernie Allen (who I was named after) founded Allen Coal Company.

A couple new photos from Edog, one of his Uncle Earl Allen next to a V12, this very tractor is among several V12's being restored. Widgie Lyons is posing next to a pretty new looking 359. I resized the third photo which is a classic, it was already posted.
