On the road again: Cowell semis return to local parades


Mechanic Danny Torkelson, of Farmersburg, worked throughout May to get Jim Cowell’s famous scale-model semis and jeep running again. The vehicles have been at Froelich since 2009. (Photo by Audrey Posten)

Cowell, pictured in 1978 with the grain truck that served as inspiration, created his vehicles between 1971 and 1981. They were a staple in local parades for decades, running until around 2006 when Cowell's health declined. (Photo provided)

Monona Hay Days parade-goers witnessed the return of Cowell’s collection on Saturday—the first time the miniatures have been on the road in over 15 years. (Photo by Audrey Posten)

According to Torkelson, the hardest vehicle to get running was the jeep. “I thought that was going to be the easy one because it had most recently been restored. But I don’t know if he had touched much of the mechanical stuff,” he shared. “The easiest was the quarter scale. I simply got fuel to go through it, hooked a battery to it, and it took off.” (Photo by Audrey Posten)

The job required some late nights into early mornings, especially to get the two smaller vehicles ready for a Memorial Day weekend test run at Froelich. “It’s totally worth it to me, just the fact they are going to get back out there,” Torkelson said. (Photo by Audrey Posten)
