  4. Its been on here before, but you asked.

    Walker the owner/builder of the Diamond T has a fast and loud 1958? bastard alfa single seat roadster that really pisses off the local purist Alfa/Ferrari club in Seattle. I won't waste band width on it, but I really like the turned dash and the fabbed side exhaust. The side car makes it track like shit, but its the only way to take a passenger. I think it weighs under 1400lbs, I know my dad and I have slid it around the shop floor when it was in the way.

    Yes they do. I collect Diamond T gauges. Not enough room for the whole trucks.
     
  9. Man this is like a message from the vintage tin god, I saw one for sale yesterday and didn't take the time to stop. I'll take photos. used to drive by what looked like a diamond T pickup never stopped, but was pissed when I saw it being loaded as I drove by one day

    Last fall I was walking down a street in Portland and spotted a truck behind a fence. I walked around the corner and among other things found this Diamond-T.

    The split screen and roof remind me of a B17 cockpit. VERY cool trucks.
