Those who tour the Clearwater Historical Museum can view a 1926 White logging truck with vacuum brakes that was purchased by Finke Logging in the late 1970s or early 1980s at a sale in Eugene, OR. At the same time, they purchased a Mack logging truck, according to Tia Pomponio.

Butch Finke has the Mack and Jim Finke kept the White. The White was used once in a parade, but the magneto failed and it had to be towed back to the shop. When Jim passed away, Corby Finke asked if the museum would be interested in having it. The truck was then donated by the family.

The museum board sent the magneto to be repaired and hopes to be able to display it in parades in the future, Pomponio said.
