Hooniverse Weekend Edition: Vintage Garbage Trucks via Dark Roasted Blend


We received this tip at Hooniverse Central over a week ago, and I’m just now getting around to posting it (Thanks Jason by the way!) in a continuation of our heavy truck theme for this weekend. See more images after the jump….

Of Course its a UD…. Well, what did you expect anyway?

The Website, Dark Roasted Blend, is a site dedicated to Weird and Wonderful things, from Steam Powered Tractors to Tunnel Boring Machines, and everything in between. This group of Refuse Trucks is only the latest in their library of images, so why not just waste your entire Sunday discovering the site. The house can wait!

Images are from Dark Roasted Blend.

    I've seen this, and it's fascinating. Garbage trucks are something you take for granted, until you realize that if it wasn't for them, you'd be hauling all your garbage to the dump yourself. It's about time they were given their due.

    That's a good article. I agree that the German trucks seem to be the best thought out and designed. The American trucks use a different approach, with a standard truck chassis and the collection mechanism from whoever, which seem to give them more personality.

    Those vintage trucks are pretty cool!
    I'm surprise that that many of them have survived, given the abuse they take!

    Those restored red Ford garbage-trucks brought a smile to my face.

    This weekend I went to the Motor Transport Museum in Campo, CA. It's a graveyard for tons of old trucks and machinery. They have stuff all the way back to the turn of the century, like chain drive Macks, etc. Fascinating stuff. Crazy to think of the stories that some of these machines had.
