Good looking truck you got there Johnny_Stovebolt.
Welcome to the biggest and best site for old Chevy trucks.


Modern ‘science’: the wonder of a
pre-determined mind…

The ‘baseline belief’ of astronomy:
“Any day now, we’ll pick up a tiny,
coded signal from outer space. Then
we’ll know for certain that there is
intelligence out there, because coded
information does not arise by chance”

The ‘baseline belief’ of biology:
The precisely coded genetic information in
every cell would fill many books…
but we know for certain that no intelligence
could have created life.”

I used to work at a supermarket (Mars) in Baltimore and would go out into the "projects" to pick up grocery carts in a '66 like that one. Base model red like yours.

Funny story: I was running late one Saturday night after a delivery and had a hot date waiting. I pulled out onto Route 40, wound it up way too tight in first gear, pushed in the clutch and BOOM! Snapped the input shaft right off the tranny and blew the clutch into pieces.

The worse part was my boss was a mobster with a nasty temper and I had to call him with the bad news. Obviously I survived, but it was ugly. :mad:

Ahhhh, the good old days.
