Father’s Day Special: My Dad’s 1978 International

I hung out with my Dad the other day and decided to take pictures of his pride-and-joy 1978 International Loadstar 1600. The beautiful thing about International trucks is that they’re very simple and no-nonsense in their design. Down to the VIN. I remember getting the insurance policy going on this thing and arguing with the lady that I wasn’t short a few numbers on the VIN.

The truck was originally owned by the USAF and as a result is in surprisingly good condition. And yes, I laugh at my Dad’s “seat cushion” everytime I get in to drive it. Happy Father’s Day, Dad.
