Mr. Morton asked me to post the latest addition to the Tackaberry Collection.

I really like these new Cats, too bad Cat scrapped the idea going forward.

This one looks real good.

Why weren't there any CATs in TruckWorld 2016 :(

Looking great!

What's with the Tackaberry Collection? Is that some sort of Antique collection? The same with the HX seen in Truckworld 2016?

They pulled the plug on their on-road truck line just recently Zeprome. All we have now is the International HX version.

That looks like the tractor Toromont let Jim Park do the magazine test drives with. The two videos are on you-tube.

I like that truck.

George Tackaberry & his son Charlie probably have the largest antique truck collection in Canada. Google them......lotsa Youtube vids & stuff to look at. One of the ATHS chapters in Ontario has an annual trip to their place which sounds like a blast.........they display their trucks at both the Macungie & Lititz shows in PA which I attend so I do get to see them. :)

I assume you are Charlie Tackaberry?  ;D

I will look at their collection. This sounds really nice to have a father and son heritage of antique trucks.

Guys thanks for the comments. Charlie Tackaberry sent me the photos. John thanks for posting. The Tackaberry Collection is probably one of the larger collections in North America & one of the nicest families you could ever meet.

To complete that one, it needs to be red/black with some gold accent, THEN it is Tackaberry :)
