You were here a few days ago, so maybe you'll see this. The Trivia thread is what he was talking about. There, guys post questions and pictures and try to guess what they are. Some guys will "cheat" by doing what I'm about to describe:

By mousing over the image, you can sometimes see where the photo came from originally. Some browsers will give info by right clicking the image and selecting "View image info" or similar text. In your case the info shows the truck photo was from the 2009 Goodguys southwest nationals, and the truck is a 1939 Chevy.

Using that as a clue, you can search for more info. By googling info from the image description (2009_goodguys_southwest_nationals+1939_chevy_truc k), you get an internet address: 2009 Goodguys Southwest Nationals 1939 Chevy Truck Photo 12. Going there, you see the truck was featured in Classic Trucks, and is owned by Peggy and Bill Gauger.

Clicking on the link there, you see that the photo was in the April, 2010 issue of Classic Trucks, in an article by Grant Peterson.

Using the info above you might be able to find other photos.

Well its been awhile since i last posted progress on the truck so i figured i would do a little update. here are some pics as you can see we have moved over to the body and finished disassembling the truck and then we stripped the paint then we soda blasted the cab and fixed the bad spots and shot it with epoxy primer then we moved to the box and found so much filler and rot that we decide to get a new box from pro'spicks which we had them flatten the tops while maintaining original height we got the back and assembled and mounted back on the frame to our liking. we then proceed in closing of the back by bending up some steel to get a smooth welded tailgate and followed the top edge around the top of that. Now we need to finish the front panel of the box( when the box is back off the truck) and make a roll pan for this we will french in the tag and make "halfmoons" for our exhaust outlets. we also need to dolly out the line in the rear fenders and french the tail lights in them as you can see where that was being mocked up to get a hole cut

Very cool! My dad missed seeing his 55 F-100 finished by only a couple of months. This was in 2005, he had owned it since 66. That would have been nice darn it.

are you keeping the stock steering column or the gm aftermarket look. was wondering if you did keep the stock column what did you use for linkage outside the firewall. building a 46 chevy 1/2. First build for me I set the engine low and back, it was a challenge with OEM components from suburbs and different GM products to a Pacer rack and pinion which came with the truck

steerng linkage

it was a challenge snaking through the exhaust, took a pair of 307 exhaust manifolds and ground them down to look horn style, looking down from the top they look great, And you know limited restate between the stock inner fenders sure you have found

few pics of recent work. We got the taillights frenched in, got the rollpan made and cut out the openings for the exhaust tips, we cut and moved the frame in 2 inches around where the rear tires will go that along with the little mini tubs that we made from trailer fenders we gained 4" in for bigger tires. the tire in the picture is a 305 we had kickin around we will end up with 295s - 315s but the 315s will be pushing it as the rear rims are only 10" wide

here is a pic of the rims we order they are American Racing vn425s we went with 17x7s up front with 4 inch backspacing and 17x10 in the rear with 5.5" back spacing should give us a nice staggered look while still being able to get a good amount of sidewall to our liking .... here is a picture of a truck that we kinda liked we are going to weld up our hood like this and we would like to do our headlights like this aswell and paint the chrome to match the body color which is electric blue at the moment with darker blue ghost flames also we think we will be lowering the head lights like in the last picture

and here is the kicker we dont want to half *** anything on this truck that being said there is no way we are gonna get to drive it this year do to the limited time we get to work on it which is a few hours after work and on weekends and as it gets nicer out we can kiss working on the weekends good bye so what we were thinking is to finish the little bit of boxing the frame we have left and any other welding that needs to be done to the frame and paint it along with the underside of the cab and spray the rest of the truck in primer, make the fuel tank, drop the good motor and trans in, plum and wire the truck, and mount a temporary seat in it hopefully by the end of june and have some fun and work out the bugs this summer and go to shows with our "rat rod" then in in the fall tear it back down do the front mods, interior, body work and paint and the bed floor and install the vintage air ac and any other finishing touches... so like a good or bad idea?
