From Dennis :

           I'd like to put my beautiful new gal on your web site! Heres some of the information about her.

           I bought this truck from a high school baseball coach in Federal Way, Washington. He bought it for his teenage son, but just didnt have the time to restore it. He bought it from the second owner who inherited it from his best friend and original owner.

           The truck spent most of her life in Roseburg, Oregon -- no doubt a humble little lumber truck. When I found her, she had a nice straight body but just needed a little TLC. The truck has a 235 inline six cylinder.

           So I gave as much as I could afford in addition to her shiny new green prom dress. Since then shes been real loyal and Ive fixed her up a bit here and there when needed.

           She is definitely still a work truck and I use it as a regular commuter. No hot-rodded show room phoo-phoo for this gal as shes the real deal and Id like to keep it that way.

           Some additional pictures:

           I’m from Bellevue, WA and a little town called Camas, WA (grew up there).
