I can tell you the maroon volvo is still around. I just had it refurbished last year. The truck is still really strong and a great winch truck.
I don't know how to post pics or i would show you how it looks today. I'm really enjoying these old pictures. Thanks for posting these.

I remember that show very well. It was held at the Twin Towers. Great looking trucks. Joe did you say in another post that you still have Joes Jewell. Your Father always had beautiful trucks. See you at the show.

Scott i still have the H475T that was on the GMC in the another post but i put it on a 1986 international. The International was supposed to be Kauffs but they wanted a automatic which i believe is the truck in this post. My truck was there that same year.
When i figure out the pictures ill post some of the old trucks even though this shows how old were getting.

Well my dad says without a doubt that was the year the first integrated came out from Atlas Wrecker Beds because if you look in the last picture you can see the red autocar constructor series with the 40 ton Atlas on it he drove it from charlotte and they used it to demonstrate the lifting capacity of the integrated
