It Ran When I Parked It Phot Contest

It Ran When I Parked It -- Everyone loves pictures of old trucks. We certainly have lots of them all over this site. So we ran a contest for nine years to illustrate ... The Big Lie. Everyone who's been around this hobby longer than 15 minutes has heard it when responding to an ad in the paper or stopping to check out an old truck on the side of a country road with a "For Sale" sign in the window ... The old guy (or gal) comes out and tells you ... "It's a good ole truck and it ran when I parked it."

Kathy Weeks' Garden Stovebolt     Of course Calvin Coolidge was president at the time, but no matter -- even though it's a complete wreck and Barry Weeks would probably make a flower planter out of it, the truck MUST be worth $25,000 because ... It Ran when I Parked It!
