Man, Sambo's trucks!
I grew up in western Pa and my hometown had one Sambo's restaurant in the mid-70's. It was kind of a thrill to catch one of their trucks coming in as they were based in California (or at least that was on the door), but they were definitely west coast trucks. Long wheelbase 352 Petes with matching trim reefers, usually with Sambo's graphics, and west coast rigged trailer axles. They were really exotic for my area at the time. I managed a couple photos. One decent portrait shot was of a rig with no trailer graphics, one other on the fly, with graphics, but a good part of the trailer is cut off.
WC, did these rigs really come all the way from the west coast to make restaurant deliveries?
I didn't realize there were models of the trucks, never saw one.
I googled Sambo's and came up with their website. They went bankrupt in '79 but apparently there is still one operating in California and it is the original location. Got some insight on the name too.http://www.sambosrestaurant.com/
