More pictures of old trucks

From Steve :

Here is our 1934 Chevy Fire Truck. It was saved from the scrap heap (it was actually going to be chopped up!). It was in a garage fire five years ago. Ten years ago, it was found in a barn in West Virginia.

My son was trying to get it ready for the Labor Day parade in Pineville, West Virginia. The paint went on August 30. We still a lot of work to do and only a little time.

 BUT ...

My son Shawn and his wife Marty made it to the parade and even got a trophy at the car show. We only worked on it for about two and a half weeks. We had a lot of help from family and friends. We all burned some midnite oil.

           My son's fire truck, I believe, was meant to be. We're not on the fire department, but highly respect and admire those brave men and women who are. And we do love old Chevys and we feel we sorta saved this one.

PLUS .... a dear friend of our's ... Jerry Halsey ... Unit 315 ... Oceana, West Virginia ... passed away this time last year. We dedicated the truck to his memory.

An interesting note .... in West Virginia a person can't get a personalized antique vehicle license plate. But when we registered this truck, the plate came back "AV 1934" which was a random pick. Some things, I think, are meant to be.

Some folks here in the county already want the truck for a football homecoming game and a parade with the "Pee Wee" football players. I'm glad the old Chevy is still going.

My Dad, who is 77, is working on a 1952 1/2-ton (that's why I had joined The Stovebolt Page). I'll send pics of it a little later.
