From Dave:

           This board has been such a great resource over the past couple of weeks. I am a proud owner of a 1950 GMC 1/2-ton pickup. It's no where close to being finished; but, it's still my daily driver.

           From a forum discussion, someone noticed I "have post-1950 doors but that is a good thing to have the wing vents. It looks like the front fenders may be post-1950 also. Are you running a GMC 6 under the hood? Mine is only a 228 but it is awesome." Well, I'd like to tell you that I can ID the different period fenders and such; but, I cant. Are there any articles on identifying the different lines on my truck to a particular period? I strayed from tradition on this truck. I am running a 350/350 combo under the hood.

           This truck has been on Ebay a few times. Fortunately, my Honda bobber is finished and I will the have time and money to invest in my truck. I'd like to straighten out the body some more. The body has been roughed in and what body work has been was done at a low quality so I'll have to redo a couple of spots.
