1948 Diamond T, etc.

from our man in Banff, Alex Emond:

"There were a handful of street-rod type classic cars and trucks here for a little show 'n shine . The Diamond 'T' might have been the diamond in the rough. Smaller turnout than last year, it seemed, and a negative forecast might have discouraged some folks. The weather was fine, as it turned out. Anyhoo ... here are some pretty trucks, even though I have become more of a fan of the " Original Survivor " type truck I have to admit that these units are a gas. Cheers, Alex"
