The Golden Age of Trucking Museum’s Founders Gallery is very pleased to present its next exhibit, “Tractor Mac’s Big Tread Tour”.

Author and illustrator, Billy Steers, that day signed copies of his “Tractor Mac” series books. He unveiled his new book “Tractor Mac Saves Christmas”. All of Billy’s books will be available for purchase in the museum gift shop. Billy is an author, illustrator and pilot. In addition to the Tractor Mac series he has worked on over forty other children’s books. He grew up on a farm in Roxbury, Connecticut where he had horses and sheep. He is married with three sons and still lives in Roxbury.

The drawing was presented to The Golden Age of Trucking Museum by artist Luke Durgin Paliocha. The fourteen year old from Newry, Maine based the drawing on his own International Delivery Truck which is believed to be a 1947. Luke is passionate about antique vehicles. He draws them and collects antique toy versions.
