That second Brewery Truck would be enough to make a fella quit drinking!   :hah:  Or maybe have a few more to try to forget what he'd seen.

Funny, but I think we should stay to let´s say pre 1980 vehicles, O.K.?

That's the 2nd time in 3 days that I've been chastised for posting my own photos.  I checked this carefully to see if there was any restriction on date. As a matter of fact, you wrote "any contributions will be welcome."

If I fail to follow rules or if I post something that's outside the bounds as set by the starter of the topic, I can understand being warned, chastised or even banned.  However, in each of the two cases, there's been nothing improper about what I posted. 

I don't think it's a good idea for me to post any of my photos any more.  My time machine is broken so I can't go back and take photos of the 20s or 30s...or even 70s no matter how much I'd like to.  If people want to see my photos, there's a website listed in my profile that I've run since 1997.  There are lots of photos there and they're constantly being added and updated.  But no more here.  That's it.

Ray, I´m sorry and I did not want to upset you or anyone else.
I did not even ask you to remove your photos, did I?
My idea of this thread was to unearth all the fabulous old advertising vehicles that are lost in our memories.

Please do not take this personally in any way, O.K.?

No, you didn't ask me to remove them.  I did so on my own.

I appreciate the apology, however, given the fact that, as I wrote, I was chastised twice in 3 days for posting my photos, I won't be doing that any more. 

I don't hold a grudge, nor any ill feelings toward you, Grob.  As I've written to you, I admire your photographic work and I know you work hard on this forum to create interesting puzzles and to keep the memories of vintage motoring alive.  Still, there's an English phrase that goes, "once burned, twice shy."  I feel like I've been burned twice, so I guess I can feel 4 times shy.  I'll post my photos where I have for the last 15 years...on the website listed in my profile and some on FaceBook.  But not here.
