    I SAW YOUR TRUCK THAT TRANSPORTED LITTLE IRBY THE WHALE SOMETIME IN THE 1950'S IN GASTONIA,N.C.  I WAS PROBABLY 6 TO 10 YEARS OLD.  I BELIEVE IT WAS ADARK BLUE INTERNATIONAL (NOT SURE)  DO YOU HAVE ANY PICTURES OF THAT TRUCK.  I REMEMBER PEOPLE WERE LOOKING AT THE TRUCK INSTEAD OF THE WHALE.  I HAVE A COPY OF A TRUCKING MAGIZINE THAT FEATURED YOUR 1ST CUSTOM BOSS TRUCK.  DO YOU HAVE THE MAGAZINE?  IF YOU DON'T I WOULD BE GLAD TO SHARE IT WITH YOU.  I BELIEVE THE MAG. WAS PUBLISHED IN 1969 OR 1970

    Hi! Ken,

    Sorry you deleted some albums because you didn't have to do that.
    Everything stays the same and no albums are deleted.
    Dmitri the founder of Fotki clears that up in his message here, -but
    I know he made a BIG mistake in his notice to us all, -but I knew
    what he was talking about.
    Read his message here;

    Have a wonderful day and week!

    Hello, dear Mr. Ken!
    Now, I see a little tragedy in your "Kenworth" the month of August... U-f-f... I am very worried, because I know this truck means a lot to you. Still, I'm 100% sure that you are not to blame for this tragedy!!! Because you're driver professional. You are driving many- many years. Unfortunately, all the countries on the road a lot of machines small and big, such a tragedy can not be avoided ...
    If a man went to the car from home to office, from office to home (5 miles) - a tragedy rarely happens. If you are driving truck in the morning until the evening and at night every day, all year (not on leave) - this tragedy can happen to anyone...
    I wish health to you and your vehicle, sir! Yes, sir!
    I always wish you smooth road and very good weather!
    I hope your truck is insured. :) With great respect to you, sincerely yours, Nick.

      Hey there Nik

      Thanks for stopping by my fotki

      No you are wrong,I wrecked my truck on a steel chain at a dock unloading . And you are right,this Kenworth truck of mine is like my kid. I love my truck.
         But all is good now,I had the whole front of my truck repaired like new,even better than it was  (see photos)
          I will be comomg out with a Tyrone Malone t shirt in a few weeks, it will be awesome . Sammy (The tyronemalone.net webmaster) and I are finishing up the design now. stay tuned.

    Hi there Ken 
     Thanks for all the effort putting the information out about Tyrone's trucks. I went to the truck show in 75 when i was 5 and just fell in love with the Boss of America truck, it pains me greatly to see her in the shape she is in. If it is okay with you i put one of your pictures of it on my flickr site with credit to you and a link to your site if you want me to remove it i will. If you look at my flickr site you will see i am the guy that built the Blue Mule from White Line Fever. I also painted my '94 k100 just like the BJ and the bear truck. My current major project is building a 55 Peterbilt on a 80 model freightliner frame with a KTA Cummins. 
      As you can probably can tell i all ready have enough projects. I noticed you put the owners name and number with the pictures of the Boss of America Truck, i presume it is for sale. I can't realistically add a project that extensive to myself
    at this time maybe in a couple of years or so. My main concern is if the trucks preservation and saftey from the scrap torch if that is resonable possibility let me know the least i could do is buy it and transport it to a barn in Weatherford Texas. You can email at redbaron977@gmail

    Hello again, I did remember wrong: the truck with stainless-steel-bathtube trailer is black with checkered stripe along the side

    Hello from Norway. i did video-tape Tyrone Malone in Fyresdal, Norway in 1981.
    Here in Norway it is not many American Trucks, but it is some nice one. I know owners of Peterbilt's and Kenworth's.
    I had a nice site with pictures and videoes of them, but The Ning Team where the site was became to expensive for me.
    I have a site now with some few pics and vids, and i will upload more. The site is here:

    See the black-red-orange Peterbilt with stainless bath-tube as trailer.

    My Youtube account: HDSoftailDeuceNorway, there my Tyrone Malone video can be seen

    I do like your pictures here a lot
