From Rex :

          Here's a couple new pics of my fleet. [ Image ] One is with my daily driver, a 1977 3/4-ton Chevy.

          When I took the pictures [ Image ] , the radiator in the 1966 Chevy Panel started leaking so I changed it with another old one I had. Now it leaks, too. Hopefully, I can get one fixed so I can start it occasionally. It doesn't leave the yard.

          When taking these pictures, my family and friends thought I was crazy for getting on top of my garage. I thought it would be a cool picture of all the trucks together. Plus, I wanted to see how big of a garage I really need.

          Just a note to Jeremiah from Ohio -- I think we may have met at one time. That is a cool four door. Can't wait to see it finished.

          There's alot of good lookin' trucks on this site. Maybe I'll have a nice one, one of these days.

Thanks again,

Rex James

Keep on Truckin' !

          Cool shot. I bet it was fun taking the picture from the roof. Looks like you'll need a might big garage! ~~ Editor

From Rex :

          Hello Stovebolt. I'm Rex. What an awesome web site. I read about it in Vintage Truck magazine.

          I have had this old truck disease all my life. I own three mid-sixty Chevy trucks. This 1966 1-ton Panel , a 1966 3/4-ton 4 WD Stepside and a 1965 1/2-ton Fleetside.

          This is my 1966 Panel. My Stepdad bought this truck in 1969 to pull stockcars. This was the first truck I drove. I was 8 years old and thought I would never get to drive it when I was old enough.

          I drove it to high school and a few year after. I parked it in 1985 because of the body mounts getting bad. I always wanted to find another one but didn't have much luck or money at the time. I put another motor in it about three years ago just so I could move it occasionally.

          It was an awesome truck in its day. In high school everyone thought it was an old hearse. It was named "THE MEAT WAGON"!

          Thanks for letting me share my trucks with other truck people. I'm not much of a computer person so my daughter is doing this for me. She likes 1972 Chevy trucks.

          Thanks for the time and space.

           In August 2007, the Old Truck Dude submitted a fine Ohio truck ... a 1964 Chevy 1/2-Ton Pickup Truck. That makes four! ~~ Editor
