Vintage Milk Truck #20

Remember the milk and the Helms trucks, I do!  This is #20.  Classic Cool Rides continues to grow with #20. Our neighbors own the Rockview Farms Dairy here in Santa Ana, so I couldn’t resist with the logo. I had taken a pic a few weeks back of a vintage milk truck and thought it would fit in with the other classics. Collection and travel dates are growing. Far from finished. Enjoy a snippet of this cool ride!

  1. Ah, yes! The milk truck and the Helms trucks–I remember them well. My father was among the first Helmsmen when Paul Helms, Sr. started up Helms Bakery during the depression. He remained “Johnny Craig, the Alhambra Helms Man” for over 29 years. During all my years of growing up, there was always a Helms truck in our driveway at night. On holiday breaks from school, I was allowed to go with my father to the bakery in Culver City at 4:30 a.m. to load up the truck for the day. Oooo, it smelled so good there and the people were so very nice. When we returned home for breakfast at about 7:00 a.m., I was ready to go back to bed and Daddy was getting ready to start his long day on the streets. It would make my heart swell if you were to create a Helms truck work.

  2. Fantastic! What a great add to the Classics collection!
