Woogeroo has encouraged me to chime in about my daily. My defination of my daily driver is something that I drive very often rain or shine. Now that my wife's daily car died, she is using my daily Jimmy and I get to drive my truck every freaking day - yeah baby yeah.

My wife wants me to paint the truck and I don't, for if I do, like some of you, I will not use it as a truck. Maybe we can meet halfway by me doing something to the bed so I can haul stuff and not worry about scratching it.

Until then.......here's pics of Mr. Truck in action.

cmayna,

That's a fine looking truck. New paint won't make it do what it does any better, and paint costs like stink!

Best wishes,

Les

That truck looks great, I would leave it as is.


It took 11 years but we got "an ol' truck",
was driven daily, now short drives only frown

I wanted to leave the stock paint on my '54 GMC but there were so many places where the paint had lifted and it was rusty underneath so I went with a complete paint job. I now would never put anything in my oak bed now so use as a truck is not possible. I do enjoy having it look so good now.
