The Hayes-Anderson Company built its first truck for the B.C. logging industry in 1922. Over time, its successors designed and produced many other trucks and buses but the logging truck had always been the backbone of the company. Paccar took over the firm in 1975, but the last truck built before the change is still on the road. Today, Steve Drybrough of Port Alberni, B.C., drives the Hayes HDX 45-115 logging truck purchased new by MacMillan Bloedel in 1975. Moving worry-free over treacherous mountain roads, he looks down the clouds from the cab of his 'Angel's Playmate', safe and comfortable. Angel's Playmate, the last truck ever produced by Western Hayes Truck Ltd., was completed in 1975 for MacMillan Broedel. Mr. Drybrough has been its only driver.
