From Paul: 

       Hi there. Hope this finds you all well. Since the last time I wrote, I've made a couple more acquisitions Here's some pics for your alternative gallery. I bought this ' 61 Rambler Classic simply because it was just too cool. Cast iron 195 six with three-on-the-tree and overdrive. It's kind of amazing now that we're getting older. How many people have never seen a manual shift on the column, much less recall seeing a Rambler. Great cruiser this one.

       We moved out to the country about a year ago and since I had sold my ' 68 F*rd, I needed a truck to help with doing some clearing and hauling. I came across this '48 International KB-5. Green Diamond six, 4 speed + 2 speed and a 16 foot bed. Drove it home about 65 miles, top speed 45 mph in high gear. A long bumpy ride and a crash-course in split shifting.

       I don't want to let you guys down so I plan on my next purchase being a Stovebolt. I'll let you know what I end up with. I am making plans to get another big bolt. I love the AD's, but next round I'm thinking of looking for a late '50's Task Force or an early '60's model. I really like the '58 -'66 bodies. The big bolts are still plentiful on farms and ranches around these parts. The hard part is trying to pry them loose from their owners.

       Thank you for posting my previous vehicles and I hope these are worthy additions to the Alternative Gallery. Thanks again for THE great site. Still loving it.

Take care you guys.
