Thanks for posting that, Joker. I couldn't believe Ned drove that one ton all the way from the east coast to KC and kept going to see friends in CO. Heck of a nice guy, Beautiful truck too.

I really enjoyed visiting with Ned, and liked his truck.

Often I wonder where the truck is now, does anyone know?

On his around the country tour he stopped in at my house and he and his little kitten, lovey, stayed a few days. We had a great visit and got to show him around a bit. RIP Ned, gone but not forgotten.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

Ned and I talked for a couple hours at the Reunion several years back.
Very intelligent guy that would talk on my low level.
His knowledge of Nuke power or any subject, really surprised me.

Edit: Hope this link works.
