From Jim :

           Hello. Your friendly annoyance again.

           Here is one of my two new additions to the motor pool. Pictured at their last resting place, still trying to get them moved, but they are paid for.

           This one is Kermit. It is a 1951 Chevy 1.5-ton flat bed. Overall not bad shape. It had been a daily driver. The wiring is all screwed up but the engine turns over and the brakes pump up. The floor boards are rusted nearly out, but the body is in pretty good shape. I might need a new driver's door, and a redo on the bondo on the roof.

           These as well as the 51 panel truck came from a friend's estate. Makes the motor pool two Dodges, two GMCs, two Chevy and a lot of other "stuff."


           Kudos to you for rescuing these fine old trucks. They have a way of following me home, too. Welcome also to Kermit and Old yellar, -- again a couple of fine Californian trucks. These old trucks just have so much character to them don't they? Good luck with all your finds, enjoy! ~~ Mike "Burgandybolt" Allen, Stovebolt Welcome Panel Wagon

         James has quite the stash: a 1944 2.5-Ton 6 x 6 GMC (along with it comes a bunch of interesting goodies); a 1951 GMC 1-Ton Panel Truck; a 1954 Chevy 2-Ton Dump Truck; a 1951 Chevy 1.5-Ton Flatbed. ~~ Editor
