That's me, #6.

Maybe it's the lighting, maybe who knows......

Maybe because it was raining and butt cold that day I wasn't my most photogenic self......

well I am glad I got that deal settled, by the way,

Awesome! That has been the dream for my truck as well. Hopefully, I can do it soon since my grandfather turns 89 over the Labor Day weekend. My grandfather is the one that taught me 90%of my automotive and tool skills. I have many great memories and hopefully many more that include my kids.

Ok. So what does the truck and the gas station have in common?

I heard the story in more detail. In the case of the picture neither the station nor the truck had gas - at the time. Chris I owe you a beer, but I could not resist.
It is a very compelling picture.

Hambone is correct.

I was so thrilled with the success and just enjoying driving the truck, I drove it out of fuel on a country road just 15 minutes from home, and the truck came to rest at the old gas station.

Once I stopped, I just laughed for 10 minutes at myself then called my wife for rescue.

WELL PLAYED SIR. That is exactly what this hobby is about!!!! Who cares about the gas? That adventure could not have ended any better.

Indeed Nan-Nan is doing great! So much so that we did the trip again last weekend. She was quite a trooper. She rode 300 miles round trip in one day in the GreenMachine.

She loved every mile of it.

I'm not sure who had more fun, her or me. smile
