    SPENCER, N.C. - Some vintage Old Dominion trucks, including one driven in the 1950s by the founder of the Thomasville-based freight company, are being included in a collection at the N.C. Transportation Museum.

    “Exploring the history of trucking in North Carolina is a natural for the transportation museum,” says Mark Brown, public information officer at the Spencer museum.

    Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. loaned the restored trucks and trailer to the museum beginning this week with the promise that they could remain on site at least through October, says Kelly Alexander, museum executive director.

    “It’s a great way to showcase their history and how they’ve been integral in transportation in North Carolina,” Alexander says.
