Getting ready to go to a local cruise in. Here some pictures of the truck for those of you who have not seen it.

It will be yellow some day, but it still looks nice in the white sealer.
We have been working on it for seven years now.

I love the truck. But then I love to live in yesteryear. It is nice to see that someone else appreciates well made vehicles. No computer in that one. I remember hauling the pigs to North Truro for slaughter in a truck like that. Floor shift, make an H. Very few dials on the dashboard.

Funny you should say that. I was thinking of getting some big craft foam and making some sun shades that look like eyes. What do you think? It might be fun for at the shows.

Thanks. Hubby has done most of the work. My son and I have helped, but the long hours of work done by Hubby have really paid off.

Thanks. Yes it's been awhile. It has been on the road over a year now though.
