Photo Information for Gus #9 Restoring and Creating New Memories


Recommended Comments

We have been off of the site for a few months cleaning shops to start another project... I have to stop and thank the good Lord today... Old Gus #9 carried my grandparents when they first got married and will get to now carry Robert and I as we start our new journey as a married couple... folks.. I found my best friend.  Robert and I met on July 14th of 2016... and we will be married on July 14th of 2018... and it just so happens to fall on the same Saturday that we met... Robert and I work on a lot of old trucks but old Gus has our hearts.. I am working on a book called Old Iron... because I can’t explain what these old trucks do to you, but they do capture your heart and your WALLET... the restoration journey is a hard one but so very worth it in the end.. As I stand in the shop staring at that big old green Mack... I think “ oh how I wish my great grandpa and my grandpa could be here to see this.”  Thanks!   Robert told me the Mack cannot be inside the church that day... damn.. ha!!!

The best of everything to you both, although I don't think any of us who have been following your story are a bit surprised at how things turned out.  Interesting to note how much a kind and unselfish act for your Grandma has come back around full circle to enrich your life in so many ways.  Maybe the world isn't such a bad place after all, despite what you read and hear on the news.  Or.....maybe Grandma is saying "that worked out exactly as I planned it."  NEVER underestimate a Grandma!
