ADT 2, you did good by posting some pictures on your first post. It is great that you have those memories of your grandfather. Welcome to our world.

Ahhh, there's nothing like the smell of diesel fumes in the morning.

I was doing some internet searches about trucking in Arkansas and came across an old post on Freightliners that mentioned Ballentine Produce out of Alma, AR. My grandfather was Neal Brown from Lavaca, Arkansas. He and his brothers owned Brown Brothers Trucking and service station. They started out in the six-cylinder Chevrolet days and moved up to Freightliners. He had several over the years. His favorite was probably a 1970 model with a 318 Detroit and a 10 speed which he bought from Ballentine. I know...318 Detroit...but he drove it over a million miles before he parked it. Brown Brothers hauled for Ballentine for years. I went on several trips with him and have enjoyed many stories about old trucks and the road. My grandfather passed away just last week at 89 from complications dymentia...I wanted to post a picture of him by one of his trucks and also the Ballentine truck which was later painted the Brown Brother blue and white scheme. My profile picture is my grandfather by one of their trucks. Thanks .
