I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

I don't suppose I will ever restore a truck to show. I'm more interested into getting them back into the condition they were when I drove them over a half a century ago. My first semi had a bench seat like a pickup. My first Diesel was a 64 Int. cabover. I'm building 1 out of two. I am keeping the spring ride Bostrom seat and rubber pad Hendrickson suspension just to remind myself of how it was when I started. I bought 3 firetrucks very cheap. I am using the cabs from them for a 550 tractor, 550 gin pole truck and 600 wrecker. The 2 tons run, but I don't care to mess with the hydraulic brakes. They were farm trucks that would have been scrapped. I have had lots of offers from guys looking for a cab and motor, but I just don't like cutting them. I guess it is because I can remember many years of hauling grain out of elevators and watching the line of field trucks unloading. I was a 20 year old kid when I started doing this and in those days the farmers let their daughters drive the field trucks to the elevator. This made it even more interesting. When I was 27, I married a farmer's daughter. And her father had a 52 GMC field truck.

I had large collections of trucks, and cars for many years until I realized, one day,that I was never going to finish one, as long as I was working on 4, or 5 at a time. I've accomplished more the last 2, or 3 yrs with a small collection, than I did in 20 yrs with a large collection.

I too have a collection that has fluctuated over the years. Currently I'm at 14 trucks from 77 to 51.

My collection started in 1992 with a free truck which I still have.

Only have maybe 8? Big bolts
The rest are baby trucks
Total over 20, prob closer to 30.

Pics sorta hard to gather. Overwhelming.
Try customclassics.org and dig around.
Not updated in years.

Out of all these fine trucks nary a Studebaker. Not even one. My big trucks: one Corn Binder, one Screamin Jimme 6-71, and one Sillybaker. I love variety.

Between my Father, Son and I we have
4 pickups,
1 470D 3ton diesel GMC dump truck,
1 1.5 ton GMC Dump truck,
1 1 ton Chevy Panel Truck,
1 GMC 650 Diesel,
2 2 ton chevy Grain Trucks,
1 46 Spartan Manor Trailer,

This is all our Advanced Design stuff plus one cool old trailer. No they are not fixed up. Working on the kid's 1/2 ton finally though.

There are of course other trucks and cars out there but they are more donor cars for engines suspension etc. Can't wait to fix up that 455 rocket to put in my 1 ton Panel truck.
