Street photos...

1.21.2009

Older than I, and about as useful.

It was a nice enough day that Tyler and I walked downtown so I could get a few photos. We had a late lunch at Tim Hortons, I bought a drain board for my dish rack, and we walked back to my place. I will have those photos posted at some point. I am not as manic about posting anymore, so you will just have to wait. For now, some pics of this old truck that is still in use for plowing the parking lot at a transmission place, and is likely used for pushing disabled cars into the shop as well.

I couldn't get a good shot of the interior unless I stood on the back. I never thought of that until now.

Blurry, "arty" shot :-)

  1. Oh, the stories of that old truck! I had an old '67 chevy truck that I had to have a booster seat to drive so I could see over the steering wheel and dash! I do miss that old truck.

  3. My son has a '55 Chevy pickup that looks very much like this truck! It's the same color, and is strong as a tank! He plans to restore it someday, but that'll take lots of time and bucks, which he doesn't have at the moment!

  4. I love those truck photos! My Dad has a 1960 Ford that Hubby is fixing up engine wise. Oh, that thing purrs so purdy. It is bright orange and white. Lol. I should post a pic of it one of these days. I took video of it, but the sound is too loud to pick up correctly on it. Bummer.



    Sounds like you had a great day! :-)

  5. That's what a truck's supposed to look like. That thing that Honda claims is a truck is just...not!
    (And by the post's title, do you mean to infer that you are useful at plowing, too?}

  9. I think benita is right. If my eye and knowledge is right that should be a 53-56. So it may even very well be the right one. I paln on having a frined look at these pics to tell us. *hugs*.

    FB is right. We are in transition. It will pass. It always does.

    **I love the Ham and Swiss at Tim's. I had it for lunch yesterday. MMMMMMMM

  10. Wow, great photos. I love old trucks like that. And this one is being put to good use. It's like a toy, for adults, but it is being used for real work.

  11. Those old trucks have way more style and attitude than the newer ones. ;D

  12. You've captured my dream truck. I've always wanted one, as long as it had a rattle to its chassis and a bit of rust on it.

  14. Something I've never had is a pickup, S D. A few vans and lots of cars. I nearly bought an '84 Chevy last fall.

    Wild and crazy, that's me, Mary :-)

    When they are restored, they are beautiful, Benita, but it can cost 20-30 K to do it.

    Well, get a pic up :-) C-G It was a great day!

    iw, you got a furrow that needs plowing...? ;-)

    Thanks, Kate! I liked taking them.

    Well, maybe the truck is, Lerm...

    Transition is a good word for me, F-B. Thanks :-)

    Nope, gotta be '47-54, SS_S. The '46 had a different grille, and the '55 was all new and boxier :-)
    I'm looking at some good times ahead, I think.

    I wouldn't mind having it, Mr. F, just fixed up enough to be legal. Thank you, sir :-)

    And way more metal than some of the new ones, Bonnie ;-)

    I can imagine that this truck is worth at least $7500, just the way it is, S-D. The fact that it runs is a big plus.
