    Hey George, in that third picture under the left side of your truck, is that a drain or you have live steam running around your yard?
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

      It is a drain for the drive way. The drive way goes up hill both ways from the drain.

        AMAZING, George,
        I always wanted a RED/BLACK truck, but with full leg braces, I couldn't FIT!
        My Son Gregg (RIP) was 6' 6 1/2"---I built a '68 Datsun PU & padded the whole interior with TUCK & ROLL. Gregg made some quick pop out pins for the seatback & would pop it out, when he drove my truck!
        I used a '79 Mustang 2800 V-6, with C-4 Automatic, that DUDE would SMOKE EM' for a block & a half!!!---BUT, for some reason???? It would SMOKE the L/R---Never figgered that one out???

              Did'nt you have a picture of the cab sitting in the weeds before you pulled it out? I could be thinking about someone else but i thought it was you.

              No Mitch this one came from a friend in Mich that had it in a barn. But I did have a picture of a roadster pickup cab that was in the weeds. Also had a picture of a 1930 tudor that I done that was in the weeds.

                There's an older guy about 30 miles west of me that has a barn full of Model A's.
                The problem is he took then all apart to be able to fit them all in his barn.
                I wonder if he'll ever get any of them back together again.

                  If they have never did one before they get old, I would say it will not happen. Many times I have found them setting. The guy would say I,m going to restore them some day. Years latter I buy them. They are the same shape as they were the first time I ask them.
