Anybody else watch Classic Truck Rescue on YouTube? My wife says I'm addicted to YouTube. This guy Rick "rescues" old Chevy and GMC trucks. He's somewhere in the northwest, I forget exactly where. His niche is 55-59 Task Force and Blue Chip trucks. He deals with other stuff too, including the occasional older and newer GM, and some IH, Dodge, Studebaker and Ford trucks, including Fire Trucks, and some cars. He's posted 160+ videos. His latest is an inventory reduction "trucks for sale" video. He probably has 100+ trucks. He also dismantles trucks and sells parts, including whole cabs, frames, etc.

Another guy I watch some is Red Neck Restorations' "This Old Truck" / Elderly Iron. He also finds, repairs and preps for sale a variety of 50s-90s trucks for customers all over... He seems to have a lot of mechanical savvy.

Anyone ever deal with these guys, or with any other online/ YouTube truck finder/ seller?

I gather that there is a good market for well kept, clean, mechanically sound, low mileage trucks 20 - 40 years old to be used for work and/or as daily drivers.

Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with any of the YouTube personalities mentioned, or with any other truck/ auto dealer. I'm just curious if anyone has dealt with an online seller like that. Thanks.

I watched for a while then got monotonous I am addicted also, no cable. I watch Mrhevychevy. Great show and family, wife and kids get involved. The wife welds metal sculptures and the daughter is helping build her truck when she turns 16.

Hagertys barn find hunter is about my favorite, although he doesn’t focus on trucks. Tom Cotter is a cool dude.

I subscribe to about 12 YouTube channels that are automotive related and regularly watch: Iron Trap Garage, Vice Grip Garage, Flying Sparks Garage (love Emily), JonathanW, Coldwarmotors, 1963Impala, Uncle Tony's Garage and Bad Chad in addition to the two mentioned above.
Yes, I'm addicted.
Oh, and Rachel Gingell - she works on tractors. smile

Most of this is just for entertainment, but I have learned quite a bit. Sometimes it's what not to do. smile

I watch all but three of them. One of my favorites is this one.. His children are involved and his wife uses cast-off auto parts to make sculptures. His teenage daughter wrenches with him under his tutelage.
