A Bittersweet Anniversary

Sorry I haven't been posting much lately, but the empty wallet has prevented me from getting anything done to talk about. Hoping that will soon change with the start of a new job this week.

I wanted to make sure to post today though, because as I was driving to the new job this morning I realized something... 32 years ago today I saw this truck for the very first time. The reason I can recall the date is a sad one, as anyone who has read the "Whole Story" post here understands - it was the day after Mom died.

As I have said before, this project is a labor of love devoted to her memory. The only thing I can't say for sure is when, but believe me when I tell you it WILL be finished and I WILL be like a kid on Christmas morning when I finally drive it for the first time. I rode in it many times when my brother had it back in the day, but I never did drive it - no doubt because he didn't trust his teenage brother!

Many heartfelt thanks to all for stopping by this page to take a look. If you know anyone who's into old trucks 'n stuff I hope you'll share!

Thank you again...
