From Ken:

This is my latest find. It's a 1957 Chevy Panel. We've named this one "The DQ."

I found this Chevy Task Force Panel on a local Craigslist. It had been sitting for years.

This was an early Dairy Queen Promotional Chevy Panel. One of Arizona's first Dairy Queens was owned by the Becker Family. I've been trying to find the Becker's to get the "scoop" on their Dairy Queen and when they had it.

I hope to be able to wax the truck without mixing the colors together and then clear coat over the Dairy Queen patina.

This piece of history has a 305 V8, floor shift and is in good condition. I need to get some original Panel seats and get her running again.

Should be able to get a lot of free ice cream, don't you think?

Hope this blends in with my house and yard like I told my wife it would........yeah, it will. I will update as I progress.

I still have Bartamos, the 1956 GMC Carryall 4 x 4.
