1927 1-Ton Chevy Cattle Truck




Read more about Lurch. He's got so much happening, he's got TWO sagas!

2007 Memoirs -- Lurch gives us his run down (oh, should I use those words??) on all his doings for the past year. Such fun he has! Great pictures and great story telling.

You can't keep a good truck down -- Or on a trailer, either! Lurch gives a lesson in grace, humility, trailering basics and the foibles of man.

From Dean :

           Here is the most recent picture I have of Lurch.

           The guy sitting next to me is George Childs. He originally sold Lurch's chassis and engine to me.

           He has a few old Chevys, including a 1925 Chevy truck named "Leaping Lena" that his Grandfather bought new.

Lurch's Social Calendar for 2007

           Here is a list of Lurch's appearances for 2007. He'd LOVE to see you at one or more of these events!

He might appear at other venues, but none are in plan as of now.

For the "rest of the story" on Lurch, you need to read HIS version of all this stuff in our Saga Section: "Old and Ugly IS Beautiful ... or ... You Can't Keep a Good Truck Down" ~~ Editor

From Dean:

It's time for Lurch to wake up from his winter hibernation and get out and about! Below is his social schedule for 2005. If you get a chance, come out and say howdy!

  • All American Truck Show (Kennedy Park in Union City) - all American trucks welcome (May 7, 2005)
  • Friendship Day (Canada College in Redwood City) - bring whatever you've got and let's enjoy each others' toys! I'll be leading a tour to the show from Marina Square in San Leandro, leaving at 7:30am. (May 15, 2005)
  • Palo Alto Concours d'Elegance (on Stanford campus) - look for Lurch with the tractors! (June 26, 2005)
  • Horses to Horsepower(at Sequoia High School in Redwood City on October 2, 2005)

I thought it was time for an update from Lurch. He's found a few friends that he 'tours' with.

Here's a picture that was taken last weekend at a show called Friendship Day. It's a 'bring-whatever-you've-got-and-let's-enjoy-each-other's-toys' kind of show.

Lots of fun!




Dean's got a 1958 Chevy 1/2-ton Panel truck he uses to tow his trailer, which carries junk (er, parts and projects) home and also takes Lurch to shows. ~~ Editor

20 September 2001 Update

From Dean:

I'd like to replace the current picture of Lurch, my 1927 Chevy Cattle truck. The pic you have is old and isn't quite accurate anymore. (Lurch doesn't have the Austin America seats anymore). Here is a more recent picture taken at the ATHS (American Truck Historical Society) Kirkland Truck show last year.

This is a GREAT show, if you ever get a chance to be in Northern California the last weekend in April.
