Car show in London Ontario --- we won a trophy

Post by Harry Lipki » March 27th, 2011, 9:17 am

We entered the 28 Pepsi AA in the London , Ontario , Canada car show this weekend and recieved the Promoters Choice Award Trophy :D . The Promoter of the event placed the Pepsi truck at the entrance of the show gates as they were impressed by the colour scheme .. She is an eye catcher . This is her first car show event and her first trophy . :D

Is that a Fulton Easy Start or something of the like by the steering column and starter? Nice looking truck none the less. Congrats.

It's a sparky kit --- use the timing advance lever to start the truck .. works great and allot easier to use ( P.S. the distributor is electronic and does not require the timing advance rod to be hooked up . I use it to start the engine instead
Thanks for the complimant :D

Looking great Harry! You can tell it's a runner because there's a catch pan. :D

Beautiful truck. I thought you might find the attached picture of interest - its a 1928 AA I saw at the American Truck Historical Soc. meeting quite awhile ago, probably 20 years at this point. It has a bottlers body on it, but from Pepsi's arch rival Coca Cola. I had thought the yellow bodies were a Coke trademark, but maybe the yellow was a bottlers color rather than the producer.

I wonder where the truck is now?

Awesome Picture ... Our truck was painted the same color she was in 28 .The son of the family that owned the franchise back them remebered the colour . I think back then there realy was no absolute color to paint things as the Pepsi and Coke places were franchises back then .. now a days Pepsi is Blue and coke is Red ... Either way it's a Cool picture -- I will sent it off to my boss at Pepsi -- thanks for sharing

Those look like pretty big tires on the front of that Coke truck. Maybe not though.
