I know very little about this company, and while Im sure they're long gone, does anybody have some info/pics? I found this pic in Russ MacNeil's great collection, for reference...

Closed down in 2004. The Golden Age of Trucking Museum had one of their old straight trucks on display when i visited.

Cool!! Those old Fageol vans kind of remind me of a Bookmobile-but a cool-looking one! ;) 8)
As it says 1953, I assume the Fageol company continued in some form after the whole Peterbilt purchase?
