From Dennis :

           Here is my 1948 Chevrolet COE. It originally was a milk truck. This truck was built to be a work truck and now has 66,000 miles since it was (built). I use it to haul my collector cars. I have 21 cars in the shop now from early brass to the '50s with a couple '60 and '70s. They are mostly Fords and Cadillac's with a few odd balls -- Kaiser, Crosley, etc. This month I went on a tour with brass cars. I drove my 1910 Mother-in-law roadster (Ford).

           The chassis was a new (4000 mile rollover) 18500 lb gvw Isuzu turbo diesel. It's equipped with ac, auto trans, power steering, power brakes with abs, Jake brake. The sleeper is off from a Peterbuilt semi. It is equipped with a onan quiet power generator, ac and electric heat, refrigerator, micro wave, TV, DVD, sink with running water and a hide-a-bed.

           My business card (for hauling) shows me in my late teens with an INDY race car -- me at the wheel in my leather helmet and goggles with the caption. The card says I am "retired" but also says "don't call if it's not fun." That's my life today -- enjoying every minute.

           Love your site you do a great job.
