From Greg :

          Hi. I'd like to have my truck listed in your Gallery. I'm the third owner of this classic 1954. I've only owned it for a short time, but I am totally obsessed already. It's kind of funny, as I never really cared for the '54 body style and I always wanted a '50 or '52, but I saw this one listed on Craigslist and I just couldn't pass it up. Now, I can't believe I ever thought the '54 wasn't as stylish as the earlier models.

          The engine and drivetrain in this truck are bullet proof, but she still needs a few this to make it right. Brakes are next on the list (power disc conversion) and then some sporty wheels. I have a feeling this 1954 is going to put me in the poorhouse, but I don't care!
