If you haven’t heard of Brayden and Jenifer Tucker’s Dying Breed Diesels Facebook page, you must be driving a Prius and living under a rock. Their page will probably top 60,000 members by the time this is published. I had a chance to talk with Brayden last week via Facebook live.
The Tuckers are what I can only call the American Pickers of old semi trucks. Living in eastern Ohio, they are in a great location to pick trucks on the east coast and the Midwest. The three Freightliner cab-over trucks we talk about in this conversation are prime examples.
The Dying Breed Diesels Mascot
As Brayden and I were having our conversation, I started hearing an occasional noise. The Tucker family bull dog decided to take a nap close by. From time to time you will hear the Tucker Equipment mascot as he snores away in the background.
Where To Find Trucks, The Apparel and Brayden
Brayden is old school with trucks and technology. We had our conversation via Android phone. But they do have a website. Check out DyingBreedDiesels.com and take a look. Not only will you find some really cool vintage trucks, you will find some cool merchandise. T-shirts, travel mugs and other items with the cool DBD logo are available and reasonably priced.
Although Brayden will sell a truck just the way he found it, most of these trucks get a bit of reconditioning before they find their next owner. Focusing on safety, Bryden walks us through his process of bringing these old rides back to life. They may become hobby trucks or projects, but many go back to work as freight haulers.
