From the Orsons:

          Merry Christmas from Marlyn & Jackie Orson here in central Minnesota.

          Here's a photo of our "New" 1948 5-window pickup. It was dragged out of the woods in November of 1999. Total frame-off restoration. After almost six years of learning about brakes, transmission , engine (two major engine rebuilds of the 235 stovebolt), bodywork (two adult night classes of auto body resto at the local Tech College), bartering with the right people, and a close personal relationship with my Master Card, it is finished at last (well never quite done).

          My bride and I have enjoyed cruising around the county and have about 1200 uninterrupted miles this past summer. As you can see from the photo, we're all set to help out Santa if he should have trouble with his ride.
