Synonymous with childhood and nostalgia, these two trucks only represent about one quarter of my collection of vintage Tonka trucks from my own childhood.
The plan is to strip them down and refurbish them to their former glory, so I thought it was fitting to give them their own photoshoot in situ before I undertake this endeavour.
The goal of the photographs was to turn them into a vintage advert; something you'd likely see in a Sears catalogue of the time.
Extensive post production was used to give a believable vintage look, as if printed on old school paper stock through a CMYK printer.
