The '56 F100 he is tailgating looks a LOT like mine - At least I think it does - if I could remember what color mine is supposed to be. I think it's red, but it's mostly "rust" and "mud" and algae from the rain around here.

Is Jim Bob the one that Bob found for you a while back?

Yes, Dave, that is the Jimmy that more or less introduced me to Bob and Karen and I am so grateful for that !

Crash, it's mostly health problems, along with the fact that there was no way that my Wiffy could even get in that truck much less be able to tolerate the ride, so it was time to move on while "he" still could.

"busted" - - - but what I don't understand is that I even put one of those new top of the line $5 WallyWorld lawn chairs in the bed so she wouldn't have to sit on the splintery plywood bed and because I'm so caring, I even fixed her a safty harness out of several bungie straps (very colorful also)- - - jeeze - - - some wimmin just can't be pleased

yeah, P.J. my eye is currently f'd from a detached retina, however, I'm improving daily and have been able to drive if needed. The wiffy, however, is another story and her condition wouldn't allow her to even be able to climb into the truck much less handle the ruff ride. My timing was bad and I should have never taken on a PU build at "our ages" - - - if I should stay in the Kar Kulture, it will be with a comfortable, easily maintaned Cruiser, even if it's a 60's or 70's vintage. I know I'll never be able to pull a engine or tranny again but I can still fix minor things as long as I can get to them and see them hahahaha

WELL WR you are in luck I just happen to have a nice 46 Ford that I could put you and the little wife in. For a small fee it could be yours. You have my number, oh by the way I'm home.
