Hello All.

Wondering if anyone worked at Colonial Sand and Stone with my father-in-law Jerry "Barricuda" Laricchiuta? Trying to put together a little something for Christmas. Stories and or personal photos welcome. I understand he drove a mixer (possible a Autocar) and worked during the construction of the Varrazano-Narrows and Shea Stadium. Thanks, Bobby

Colonial Sand & Stone - Mack LMSWX chassis with Rex horizontal concrete mixers


I have been gone awhile so forgive me if I am replying wring, but does anyone know what they were building here?

If anyone wants some history about the Pope family and Colonial, there is a book that I just got done reading called 'The Deeds Of My Father' The author of the book is Gene Pope JR's son Paul David Pope the grandson of Generoso Pope. I could not put this book down!! And would recommend it to anyone who remembers the Colonial S&S days

BULLHUSK


I posted this by mistake on Mile's page sorry..the Popes' or Papa's were family to my Mother's family and were her God parents. The book is great with another one due out soon..they also owned the National Enquier..

I couldn't see the AC until I magnified the JPG.

Those photos really scanned clearly- you can see some great detail.

Gotta love Pierce-Arrows. If you ever have a chance to see one up close you'll notice how good the build quality was.

Those dates are surprising John, the P-A in the 1st photo looks pretty new and appears to have wood wheels.

The dates are hidden amongst the debris in the foreground. First one is 7-22-27 and the second is 6-1-29. I was surprised by the late dates. This is from CCJ Apr '27 :

Great P-A photos John, thanks for posting them. These look to have been taken in the 'teens. I see an AC Mack lurking in the background of the 1st one.

In the prior picture, that's not a Diamond T 980, but what is it? There are a couple of Colonial experts out there. It looks like a Diamond T cab and it is a 6x6. But what? Is it one of the trucks Colonial built themselves? Anyone have any better pictures?

Brian Kelly



Brian - I don't know what the model of the Diamond T was, but back in 1973 Mel Clark of Portsmouth, NH had saved (purchased) a number of Colonial mixers, including some of the Diamond T versions (I saw some of Mel's photos of them), and sold them to the growing field of truck collectors, along with the various Mack F model Colonial mixers that he had. So, I'd say, there are still one or two left out there.
