Brent Veak got me all fired up last week with that incredible Allis-Chalmers logo. One of the best, from the Midwest. Thanks, man!

FROM HEAD TO TOE: Allis-Chalmers over the years. Tons of stuff to see there. Orange, even!

Have fun in here. We sure did. Wow.

BIG, AWESOME ALLIS-CHALMERS MACHINERY: “AC Allis Chalmers 260 E Pan.” Yep, knew it. I knew I’d been there before. Fun how this shit works. Ha.

More Wisconsin greatness. Allis-Chalmers was once so large its west plant formed a township, now known as West Allis near Milwaukee.

To my family, this was the American dream. My dad, a German immigrant, grew up in West Allis not far from my in-laws who were Latvian. My wife’s grandpa Art worked at the AC factory until retirement, and took pride in his feats, always sporting an AC cap.

Great link to the Allis Advertising Archive. Will definitely peruse it for inspiration
