Title: The Phillipines............were old American COE's go to "retire"
Post by: Paccar 105 on January 06, 2013, 04:03:35 AM
In 2012 i visited the island off Mindanoa.
Stayed in the nothern part as in the southern part there lots off angry terrorists running around.  :o ???
Anyone who loves old American COE's would find this place heaven.
If you can tell us the former USA owner's off these trucks,pls tell us. ;)

Those barriers are placed there by the locals to slow traffic so they can cross the road.

Now i have lots off pictures off those old American trucks and will be adding them over time.
Hope you enjoy them.  ;D ;D ;D

ps it is worth it to zoom in on the pictures as there are things that will amase you.
And off course ,if you have any questions.............feel free to ask.
I will be happy to answer them.

It is the firetruck for the Limketkai Shopping Mall in Cagayan d'Oro.
Perfectly maintained and gets taking on "outhings" around the Mall.
They park it in the shade so it doesn't get to hot.
The perfect retirement plan for an old workhorse. 8) 8) 8)

Charlie,i actually caught 2 ex American trucks that were converted to fire trucks and are enjoying a very nice retirement in the sun.

The second one was even more off a one off catch.

I hope that when i retire ,they take as much care off me. ;)

Lucas,that area......let's just say i was the only white guy around for miles.
So everything you see in those pictures is for locals.
It is the industrial area.
