In the 1960s, Erv Bickford bought a 1949 Chevy pickup truck beat-up and restored it to factory condition. The project sparked a passion in Bickford.
That passion is now on display at The Bickford Collection at two locations: Yarmouth Junction on East Elm Street and downtown just off Main Street.
We " drove" a hot red car.
|Only 18 trucks like this one were built in the US.|
At the Railroad Square location, Bickford's family constructed an open-air post-and-beam pavilion and courtyard with more than a dozen vehicles ranging from a pristine 1946 Mack firetruck to a circa-1920 Buffalo Springfield steamroller, which literally ran on steam.
About half of the vehicles are stored under the metal roof of the pavilion. The other half are arranged in a mulch-covered courtyard which is meant to be enjoyed as a playground. it is opened to the public from 1-5.
The kids' favorite truck to drive..firetruck
We had a lot of fun!!
