Doug Scott driving (DS Scott owner) on his first trip east along with Ernie Kristoff during a ice storm in Iowa in January 1958. Ernie's trucks at Ray's mother's place. July 1959. Wilf Meeks and Ernie Kristoff drove Jim Costello's leased truck for DS Scott.
DS Scott #114. Jim Costello had five Hayes trucks with DS Scott. Wilf Meeks and Ernie Krisoff drove this one for a while. Ray Boileau taken in 1957 on the Hope-Princeton Highway. Ernie Kristoff was driving for Dell Express on took this photo on the way to Calgary, Alberta.

A new 40 ft.Fruehauf with underslung Carrier reefer special ordered to haul Good Humor ice cream Toronto to Vancouver. Wilf Meeks and Ernie Kristoff had just switched and were leaving Culbertson Montana when they noticed sparks and stopped. The landing gear wheels were dragging on the highway and the trailer had broken. The nearest reefer trailer was in Salt Lake City. Consolidated Freightways arrived 48 hours later.

In this picture Wilf is trying to explain why the landing gear is sunk in the pavement and why he can't move the rig off Hwy. 2 to the Montana State Patrol. The temperature was about 90 degrees but the reefer kept running and very little ice cream melted. CF sleeper team took the ice cream to Vancouver and Wilf and Ernie took the broken Fruehauf back east where it came from for re-building. Sept. 1961

Thanks to Ernie Kristoff for info and pictures.

The trailer here is shown parked on the travelled portion of the highway near Culbertson Montana
