A week ago Saturday, I friend of mine was having a yard sale and wanted to know if I would help him. I said sure. I needed an excuse to drive Sweet Pea an a 50 mile trip.
So I pulled into his driveway out in the sticks on a busy 4 lane road and parked the handsomely rugged '50 half ton right in the middle of his array of for sale items. I brought a few of my own items to add to his pile.
He told me that interest was spotty, with only a few cheapskates pulling in to browse.
That changes almost immediately as soon as I parked the Stovebolt front and center and popped the hood open.
After that, over half of the people who stopped in, wanted to know if the truck was for sale. We immediately said no and ushered them over to the tables of "priceless" sundries and such.
They pretty much cleaned him out in short order.

People dig these old trucks no matter how weathered they may be.

"Hey! I sound like Darth Vader!!
My friend had a '71 big block Fleetside that he wanted to sell. Decided to take it to the local hot rod Swap Meet. I put my restored '51 Schwinn Red Phantom in the back and off to the show we went. Had more people ask about the Phantom than the truck. But at least it made people come by a bunch.

Similar story,
My wife's church was on a main street but their bake sale was very slow. Took a customers 31 Model A coupe and parked it out front with the "Bake Sale" sign on it. Sold out to the last crumb.

Reminds me of when my in-laws participated in the “town wide tag sale”. A few early birds came to poke around for antiques and it was a pretty slow morning they said.....until I showed up and parked the truck in the front yard and threw some of their flowers in the bed that were for sale. Suddenly the town wide tag sale was all in their front yard 😂
