Just about every kid had a truck phase at some point – and it’s not hard to see why. From fire trucks to school buses to long-haul semis, these massive vehicles are certainly impressive as they sail through the streets. They’ve come a long way since the early days of American trucking – and you can take a trip back in time in Basking Ridge.

The Mahan Collection Foundation is spread over multiple buildings and forty acres, and any truck lover will be in heaven without ever having to leave The Garden State.
