I daily drive my 51 5 window. I did run from Asheville to Charlotte last weekend. 300 mile round trip. Averaged 16.6 mpg at highway speeds with the new Holley carb.

Last night was our city’s annual Smalltown Weekend celebration closed Route 66 cruise. Spent 2 1/2 hours cruising a 4 mile loop of old Route 66 in the ‘62 C-10. About 250 cars making the run. Man what a blast.

Already posted in the Greasy Spoon. But here you go.
I drove the 54 which is not that unusual but a guy drove up and started talking about the truck and he told me he had one years ago. I spent 15 minutes discussing it with him. It is a little warm here in the 80s and I am not a sun person, I have Dr. orders to stay out of it as much as possible. He also said that when he had his any stop was always longer than he had planned. thumbs_up ohwell

About 14 miles south of home base is a small community called Minco, Ok. There is a new business in town that sells hole punch launchers and high speed hole punches along with lots of accessories. Small family run business that has been open about a year and a half. Drove the ‘62 C-10 down US81 at 70mph to purchase some high speed hole punches. I bought 2 30-30 hole punch launchers a couple of years ago and had been experiencing some difficulty finding the actual hole punches. The owner posted on FB that he had just received 2 boxes and I asked him to hold til I could get there. The truck ran great and Ms Kathy enjoyed the ride. The American Flag painted on the tailgate drew lots of honks and waves. Small town Oklahoma loves old trucks and patriotism.

Had to think a bit about what a hole punch launcher is, but finally got it. grin

Seems there's been a shortage of high speed hole punches lately.

Had a good day today. My dad called and came over for lunch. I had it in my mind that I would take him for a drive in the 66 k10 after lunch. He hasn't had much exposure to the truck and I now live in a town that he has fond memories. Turns out his sister ( both are approaching 90) was also in town at her summer house. So we made a visit in the k10. My aunt and dad had a visit, I got him in the truck and it was a nice nh day. On hand, my cousin, broke from his duties and took me for a drive in the truck and he took the long route around one of our local lakes. All around a good old truck day.

The ‘62 C-10 made the 2 1/2 mile trip to our Sunday morning breakfast spot. We meet with a couple of car folks there every week. One has a killer ‘72 Nova and another couple has a ‘68 Chevy long bed and a 1964 Corvair Monza Convertible. After breakfast we usually make a loop through downtown or around the local lake. Today we drove over the new highway 81 bridge which replaced one built in the late 30s and opened shortly after WW2. Enjoyed the drive.

I took the 59 on a road trip through Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico and Oklahoma over the 4th of July week. Visited many friends and relatives in Kansas and Colorado along the way. I used mostly 2-lane roads and enjoyed the trip. Managed to stop at several local eateries along the way as well. The truck always attracted attention. Like Ron mentioned, each stop usually took longer than planned.
