Pickup trucks were once used for, well, picking up stuff. They were a little rough around the edges, maybe a sticky stick shift and heat that only worked sometimes. But you could fill up the bed with full sheets of plywood, or the remains of a kitchen remodeling job. The Great Old Trucks pictured in the 2017 calendar made you feel like you had accomplished something… that you had and that you could. These old trucks photographed by Dan Lyons should inspire more than nostalgia, though, they're like a call to action.
