More pictures of my old truck

From Steven :

We found my old Chevy truck in Hemmings Motor News. It was located in Atlanta, Georgia which is over 400 miles from our place in Vicksburg, Mississippi.

We headed out and arrived at midnight. It was really too late to test drive the truck so we told the man to load it onto my trailer. That turned out to be a mistake.

This old truck had a lot of issues, more than I expected. Luckily, some of the stuff he told me was correct.

Although it was purchased as an unfinished project, it had wonderful brakes, good steering, and a nice bed (on the inside).

The engine did not run as good as it looked but I've been working on that and many other things.

I've been working on it for the last year. No one's helping -- it's just me. But, that's the way it goes. I'm 60 now and not as good as I use to be.

All in all, I guess I got my money's worth.

Stay tuned for some more photos. A couple of pictures of when I bought the truck are in my Photobucket.
