Time to put this in the gallery .I always wanted a early 50,s chev truck and in 1986 I reached out to my uncle Dan in Manitoba to see if there was one near him as in Ontario most were rusted out .Well he found one a 54 gmc a few blocks over from his house 100 bucks .Sold .Now to get it to Ontario .My brother and dad went on the 8 hour journey to Manitoba .The truck was in great shape ,I was told it used to be a local dairy truck then sold from there to other locals .The truck was prepped to be towed back with a tow bar .All was going well the next day on the journey home until we turned a corner and my brother said his truck was loosing power ,well the truck was behind us but the rear wheel was rolling away down the road .Luck was on our side the wheel did not hit anyone and there was a tire shop and auto store on the corner were we broke down .6 new studs and a new rim and we were off .Made it back to Ontario took our time and spent a night in a hotel .I fixed up the truck to drive in the summers and loved driving the truck .The truck was in the garage for a few years and now it is time to get it going again .Thanks Kevin.
