From Riley:


        Hello this is Riley. My Dad said I should write a little something about my truck. It is a 1946 Chevy half-ton. I have learned much about sanding and filling and how to build a 6 cylinder engine. I call my truck Old Red because in the '60s, my truck was converted into a hot rod and was pin striped with the name "Old Red."

        I have done a good hand full of my work on the truck because I am not someone to sit back and watch someone else do work. As you can see, my truck isn't in the best of its days but believe me it will be in a few years or so!

         Thanks for posting my truck. It's nice to find a group who will listen to an 11 year old boy.



A few words from Dad:

         We have several years to work on the truck, that's for sure! I am currently looking for interior parts and some odds and ends. The frame and cab are sandblasted. The frame is painted. The original running gear is being installed. I traded a 1946 Jeep trailer for the truck
