From Dean :

          Great web site! I finally found a place where my strange attraction to all things old and weird is celebrated. Here are some photos of 1952 Chevy 3800 Panel. I have owned this truck for about 10 years and it didn't look anything close to the condition it's in now.

          Unfortunately, I don't have the pictures from when I towed it home but let me just say that it was purchased less than a mile from the Pacific Ocean and there was "For Sale" with an email address spray painted on the side.

          I restored the truck to fair condition with a $3000 paint / body job and a 4:10 gear swap to get it over 45 MPH.

          The panel is now under going its second transformation which might make some purist cringe. I have swapped the body onto a 1991 Dodge 4 x 4 with a 5.9 Cummins. Check out the web site for the full details.

          Thanks for the awesome web site.
