From Tara :

Hiyah! Yeh yeh, Fathers day ... hmmmm What could happen by taking Rick to an auction?? We were good all day Saturday, not so much on Sunday <wicked laughter>.   I coulda said NO! during the bidding and ended it there and then. But noooooo, not me!  VBG

OK, so this is our NEWest truck which now happens to be our OLDest truck. NOPE not another Maple Leaf but still a Chev.

This is a 1927 Chev Truck and I believe it is a big bolt, a one ton! Drawn like a fly into a flame those big trucks just magnetize us.  

Now I have to go learn a whole new set of rules. Oh well, should be fun.   Before this I could run past all the wooden wheels, the oldie oldie stuff, but now I have to rack my brain and recall, now where do I remember seeing that item or who sold those wooden wheels. We should get us a spare since the wheel carrier bracket is there, but sans a tire. [ View from the rear ]

Neat part is that she is pretty much already restored (yeh yeh, Rick is going to do stuff too far too picky he is!) and she was used in the movie Bye Bye Blues (1989) .

I contacted the two fellows you have on the site with 1927s Steve and Leo will see if they have any pointers to share or warnings man oh man. hee hee. Thought I was SAFE from wooden wheels not so! LOL

So thought I had better update you or else have you hear it from someone else and that would be WAY bad.


Well, well. What to say about this. I am not surprised it's a BIG BOLT but blown away it's not another Maple Leaf!!! She's an oldie alright ... but definitely a goodie. Keep us posted on the fun and excitement of it all ~ including life on the farm.

You all ought to read their adventures in the Gallery write-up on their SIX Maple Leaf trucks! Great info and story.
