From Andy :

This is my newest 1946 Chevy Art Deco pick up truck.

I first saw this truck about a year ago on eBay. It did not sell. I know I would end up with it. But I didn't have the money for it then. So I let it go.

So about six months later, it was on eBay. Again, it did not sell. The owner put it on Craigslist and it stayed on there.

About two months ago, I called the owner and asked him what would it take to deliver it to me. He said $600. I said "How about $450?" He said "How about $575?" I said "How about $475." He said "How about $550?" I said "How about $500?" He said "No."

Then I said "How about we meet half way at $525?" and he said "Sold!"

This truck was about 150 miles away in Bardstown, Kentucky and would not fit on my trailer. That is why I wanted it delivered.

The man called me up about a week later and asked if I wanted it delivered today. I said sure. About two hours later, I see the truck coming up my road. I had him take it to my neighbor's home ... the next driveway.

After he had backed it in and we were about to settle up, I saw his trailer had a flat tire. He told me he pulled the truck in on a flat for about 60 miles. He just did not stop.

We unload the old truck from the trailer. He told me he got he truck about 40 miles from my house! So, he had pulled it all the way to his house ... and now back again.

Andy has a slew of trucks: a 1946 GMC Longbed pickup; a 1946 Chevy Shortbed pickup; a 1941 Chevy Shortbed; a 1941 GMC with a 228; a 1946 Chevy 1/2-Ton Shortbed; a fourth 1946 Chevy truck; and a 1938 1.5-Ton GMC Truck. ~ Editor
