From Shelly :

           Well the other day, I decided to go see a friend of mine that had said to me he had a pretty nice old truck. I had glanced at it a time or two and didn't think much -- I kinda like the AD trucks. (Shelly's got a 1954 Chevrolet Flatbed and a 1952 Chevy Cherry Picker in the Gallery ~ Ed.)

           We got out there and I got to studyin' the thing, and decided I had to have ol' Bucktooth. The truck is a 1946 3/4-ton pickup. [ View from the side ]

           So ol Ray gets his Deere and picks her up and I back under her, and Joe comealongs her on up.

           We got to visit for a while. His son had planned on puttin' a stakebed on her and I thought that was a pretty good idea. The motor in the beast was locked down, but it just so happened that I had bought a motor and tranny from a friend of mine is Clovis, New Mexico. It will drop right in -- 216 of course.

           Well when we got back, we were going to move some vehicles around and Joe ran the little tractor through the mud hole. (Don't know where he got that from.) We don't get much rain out here in New Mexico, so when we do, we have to celebrate by doin' a little mud boggin and cat dunkin -- that old yellow Tom Cat actually likes the water [ pix ].

           By some coincidence, I just happened to have a motor and tranny that I had purchased from an old boy in Clovis, New Mexico that will drop right in Ol' BuckTooth. Oh and that is moisture on the truck in this picture. That's a rare thing here in New Mexico sometimes. It has actually been raining here. A true Blessing. Somebody must be a livin' right, I wonder who? [ Said with a bit of a Scotch Irish drawl ]

           Well till next time ... "Life in the Slow Lane" ... Adios, Vaya Con Dios!!
