Greetings from the Land of Enchantment.....I'm a retired ol'guy and found a 52 dually flatbed in a field. Of course us older guys probably learned to drive in one of these. The service station I pumped gas at had a 53 pick up that I did my first drive in. Loved it. When I was 17 I found a 48 in a forest and asked if it was for sale. The owner said he would give me 25 bucks to tow it off. After cleaning the gas tank and tuning it up, it started right up. When I honked the horn and asked for the paperwork, he gave it to me and 25 BUCKS!!! I had all the girls riding with me that summer. I can't wait to start on this one (the owner said it ran when he parked it) and keep my eyes open for another. Stay well my friends.....

Welcome Elmer. We have a place in Ruidoso and eat at the Oso Grill occasionally. Good luck with the truck.

You should look up your neighbor Stovebolter in Alto, Alaska Gasser here on the Stovebolt.
He's got an awesome AD hot rod. I stopped by to visit him last spring.

Welcome

Unreal, I am an Alaska Indian and lived 13 miles from Eagle River for years. I've been in NM for 29 now but of course visit home as often as possible. Not during these trying times though....
