So I finally got my dream truck, a early fifties Chevy COE (could have been either a Chvey or a brand F), and I'm looking for folks in my area to commiserate with. Any one out there with a early 50's Chevy or GMC that wants to connect with a crazy old man?

I'm in the greater Detroit area, and have a 1954 Chevy 1/2 ton that is not road worthy....yet....
What year is your COE?

Hi extremek, I bought my 1955 International Harvester 300U near St. Johns, I live between Chelsea and Stockbridge just east of 52. Took the '57 on it's loaded maiden voyage on thanksgiving morning and put 92 bales of hay on her, I was pleased with the results even though it was only a 30 mile round trip.

Just Mark: my wife started life in Vernon, her grandfather was a business man in Durand, they owned the concrete culvert plant and Marsh Monument.
