From John :

           This recently acquired (October 2007) 1953 GMC 1-ton Truck. It is all original and operational. It runs good and drives ... well, we'll just say like a old 1-ton truck.

           View from head on and a view from the driver's side.

           John is a man of few words ... but looks like a good workin' truck! Like to see 'em busy like that! ~~ Editor
