I seem to enjoy my truck the most when using it as intended.

That is one sharp looking truck. Building that bed, very cool.

We used our 58 this last week to pull our trailer down to Oregon and back. Weighted about 16K overall rolling over the scales.

Mike, That is one Good looking package. I suspect you're never at a loss for folks to visit with when you set up at the RV park. Any shots of it going down the road?

Youse guys are forcing me go review a couple of pics of our 51 flatbed 3600 with a load. The hay shot is from last season's haying as is the Luckenbach Tx with a load of folks, the Luckenbach staff. We drove to Luckenbach again this year and while no group pictures, we were invited to park in the convenient employee parking spot.

I'm a firm believer in using trucks as trucks; otherwise what's the point?

However, under full disclosure, I also use a car... as a truck.

This morning picked up some maple firewood on the way to work in the GMC.

I can personally verify you will NOT want to drive the '42 I sold you in the winter months. It runs fine but is VERY COLD without a heater:)

Summertime with the cowl scoop up and windshield open is really quite nice!

I went to an antique camp trailer show last weekend. What a hoot! The guys restore them and the wives decorate them. And I love it when the trailers have matching tow rigs!
