In late 2012, the Quiel family of Quiel Signs in San Bernadino, California offered to donate their vintage crane truck to the museum, much to the delight of OUR family. The fact that it was in California created some logistical issues, but we’re happy to say it has now arrived, neatly shrink-wrapped, missing only a big red bow.
Bruce Suba, our Left Coast go-to guy, coordinated the shipping and shrink-wrapping of the 1944 Dodge crane truck. He not only researched car carrier shippers in the area, but suggested we shrink-wrap the truck and found a vendor (Fast Wrap USA) who would do it.
See our initial blog post about acquiring the truck here.
Here are some pictures of the transport process:
