IHC Highwheelers at LeMay Museum, Tacoma, WA


As we travel, it is nice to comment about where we are going and/or where we have been and all the IHC trucks that we have seen on our journeys.

IHC Highwheelers at LeMay Museum, Tacoma, WA

I toured the Lemay Car Museum in Tacoma a while back and have been meaning to post these pictures of their Highwheelers.

Thank you, D2crazy.
I'm looking for images of the highwheeler near me in Exeter, CA. "Exeter Mercantile" was a IHC dealer for many years and still has a IHC Highwheeler "in the window".
Exeter Mercantile is responsible for all the hidden IHC trucks in the vicinity. :)

Monsonmotors: It's surprising these are still around. I've also seen one years ago (18 years!) at Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome, Red Hook, NY, and their website still shows it in the collection as an 1913 IHC Auto Buggy. http://oldrhinebeck.org/ground-vehicles/
Also saw another at a farm museum in Virginia but the memory banks fail me on the details.

I'm not sure where in Va. you visited a farm museum, but I was "back home" last fall and visited the local museum in Pulaski, Va. and found they still have an original fire truck on display at their museum.

Nice find WEW. The Ratcliffe Transportation Museum in Pulaski. That is not the same museum I visited (I recall lots of old farm equipment) but it adds another highwheeler to the museum inventory. Thank you.
