Decided to cut back the very overgrown hedge in front of the house. Hadn’t been majorly pruned in 23 years. Loaded all the trimmings onto the ‘50 and hauled it to the brush collection center 10 miles away. Weighed out 400 lbs and the truck acted like it wasn’t even back there. Got comments on the truck from the folks unloading right next to me and again from a couple in the restaurant where I stopped on the way home to get a 32 oz. sweet tea. It was another good day spent with the old truck.

With temps hitting the high 50's I took the heater-less 49 GMC out for a nice cruise. Was a great way to usher in the new year.

Thanks Chuck!

Took her out yesterday for about a 20 mile round trip. I am still in shock how good it drives and I hope I don't jinx myself. lol

After solving the issue of not starting after spending a month on the front lawn as Christmas decoration, I put the ‘50 back to work. I trimmed some more hedges, and after loading the bed with a few hundred pounds of trimmings, I drove to the city brush collection center to unload. That was fun! Then today after early church services we took the truck to get groceries at Sprouts and Wallyworld. The weather is nice and warm, and it felt good to drive the truck again. It’s had Santa behind the wheel since right after Thanksgiving!

Since my car got totaled by a hit-and-run driver last July, I've been using the '46 half ton as my daily driver. Interesting in Atlanta rush hour traffic. No turn signals, arm signals. One windshield wiper. Got a '54 235 in it that just crossed 77,000 miles (6,000 since July). Runs fine and gets a ton of "thumbs up."

Chuck, I'd be careful about letting Santa drive, he's got a bad reputation as a reckless sleigh driver, and they say he drinks a bit.

Modern ‘science’: the wonder of a
pre-determined mind…

The ‘baseline belief’ of astronomy:
“Any day now, we’ll pick up a tiny,
coded signal from outer space. Then
we’ll know for certain that there is
intelligence out there, because coded
information does not arise by chance”

The ‘baseline belief’ of biology:
The precisely coded genetic information in
every cell would fill many books…
but we know for certain that no intelligence
could have created life.”

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

I've been driving the '62 C10 as a daily Driver for the last month. Thursday, I put a little over 200 miles on it, mostly freeway.

Drove it to work Thursday morning, then after work, hopped on the freeway and headed out of Sacramento, heading to Chico, CA. It's about 100 miles away. Truck did well, ran at freeway speeds the whole way, and didn't complain.

The engine rebuild and gear swap from 3.90s to 3.38s made a big difference. I'm getting to where I would trust it out on the open road for greater distances now.
