Started up Matilda on Saturday for the first time since December. Fired right up and ran great. Went to Lowes and loaded her down with bags of mulch. Right now she has several bags of lawn debris loaded up ready to go to the landfill. Love the looks and waves that I get when people see the truck doing what she was made to do. I do need to watch the winter dirt off her though.
Mine doesn't leak through the floor, it comes through the windshield seal. Not so bad while driving as we can keep our feet out of the drips. But at a stop I get my left leg soaked because of the drip above the clutch pedal. I love adventure.

Daughters coming home from college for a few days during spring break. Her one request while home was to be able to drive the '50 around a little. Looking forward to that. Taught her to drive a standard in this truck, she loves it.
First drive of the year. Went to price a job with it. Since I did all the insulation and front rubber mat over this winter, it's way way quieter. It feels so good driving this old truck, still a novelty for me but very enjoyable.
