And while going through his stuff in preparation for my visit, Pete found a real gem. the actual sales receipt for the router, which dad bought for him as a birthday present in 1980. If you look closely you can see the date - 9/15/80.
I think it's pretty cool that 34 years later, and 30 years after he passed away, Dad has a hand in the restoration of this truck. As Pete said tonight, "The story continues." Indeed it does, big brother. Thank you.
