If you’re a truck aficionado, Johnston War Memorial Park was the place to be Sunday. For about six hours, the Ocean State Vintage Haulers held their 25th Anniversary Show. It offered families – especially those with young children – a chance to walk down memory lane and view a variety of vehicles that some members still use in their daily businesses. “We’ve got just about every make of truck here today,” said Joe Pingitore, a Johnston resident who owns and operates J. Pingitore & Sons Construction and serves as president of OSVH. “If you don’t see a certain truck, it probably no longer exists.” There were old pick-up trucks, huge haulers and even old-time fire trucks whose owners purchased the vehicles and refurbished them for private use or to show at event’s like Sunday’s show.
