National antique truck show pulls into Eastern States Exposition for weekend - Union-News & Sunday Republican

WEST SPRINGFIELD – Roger W. Gardner, of Suffield, Conn., lived just 10 months shy of seeing his dream come true.

“Do you think I’ll be alive to see it,” he had even questioned one of his daughters two years ago when the American Truck Historical Society pushed back its plans to bring its national convention and antique truck show to the Eastern States Exposition grounds from 2010 to 2012.

Gardner found the 1930s-vintage International C-60 abandoned in a cornfield years ago on a farm where he’d worked as a young man, and its restoration was a work in progress when he died last July at age 85, still dreaming of having it entered in the national show that would be held right up the road from where he lived and plied his trade with trucks.

On Tuesday, Gail Haines brushed away tears more than once as she and her sister, Jane D’Agostino, watched the C-60 lead the way with two other of their dad’s antique trucks when they rolled onto the exposition grounds for the national antique truck show. The show opens on Thursday, and Gardner is to be recognized for his work for the society and its Nutmeg Chapter.

“These are his friends,” Haines said, motioning to some of the men who helped pave the path for the C-60 to arrive at the show. “This is when you know the real heart of Suffield and of the antique truck community.”

Harold F. Willard, of Harold’s Garage in Northampton, an 84-year-old legend in the towing business and member of the truck society for decades, made certain his buddy’s precious cargo arrived in tip-top shape for the show.

“We’re like a big family,” said Willard after watching two of his grandsons unload Gardner’s trucks from his own more youthful vehicles, a 1964 Kenworth and a 1978 Autocar flatbeds, which are also entered in the show. Willard and Gardner belonged to the same chapters, and it had been at Gardner’s construction company several years ago where Willard received his award for 50 years of achievement with the truck society.

Willard’s gesture was just the cart after the horse, so to speak, in the process by family and friends to complete the restoration of the C-60.

The project started out as a Thursday morning gathering for a team of volunteers from across Western Massachusetts and northern Connecticut. But, as the national show drew closer, the tempo picked up quickly; the mornings blended into the afternoons, and, in at least one case, night fell before the work for the day was done, Haines said.

The list of helpers was many. Calvin Pixley, of Westfield, was the mastermind behind the mechanics of the truck, Gardner’s son-in-law Richard D’Agostino (along with his wife) handled the paint job on the cab that’s emblazoned with “R.W. Gardner, ” on each door. Someone else donated the gas tank, and another friend dropped off some vintage burlap bags bearing the name of the Eastern States Farmers Exchange to adorn the truck bed for its display at the big show.

It was Bob Sullivan, of Suffield, who had oak boards milled from trees felled right on his property to rebuild the bed of the truck to honor his friend, and it was Sullivan who was behind the wheel as the truck pulled up for registration day. “It was a long haul to get it to this point,” said Sullivan. “This is Roger’s last hurrah. His dream was to bring the C-60 to the Big E.”
