  1. I had one of those weird loads this week that was just....weird. Went up rt. 20 to this location to load some old wood, timbers out of an old barn. The plan was for me to back into this driveway off the highway. The state police had traffic blocked at the top of the hill up to the far left in the picture. I was supposed to back in inside the red lines, then back sort of parallel to the highway. I told them that it was un-possible, there just wasn't enough room. There was a deep ditch on both sides of the driveway, and I told them that if we could put some wood in the ditch for me to cut the co
  2. ...and on top of all that, today I found out that Spongebob Squarepants is a racist.
  3. Wow, the fastest car I ever had, the 70 Chevelle SS, only ran a little bit faster than that in a quarter mile. I had two cars that I took to the track, both street cars. I got 99 mph out of the small block 72 Nova, and ran 101 with the Chevelle.
  4. And then further south we saw this old Wilson truck by the road...
  5. Somewhere between Butler and Kittanning.
  6. Me and Zina from Florida- I call her Zina from Florida because her name is Zina, and she lives in Florida- were driving down rt. 220 in West Virginia last weekend and saw a few old trucks. I stopped in the truck one time and looked at this big old GMC here, because when I first spotted the front end I thought it was a D860. There happened to be a big pull-off across from it, and I even talked to the owner for a while. He said it had the big 6 cylinder gas engine in it. That was probably over 10 years ago, I was driving the silver Peterbilt at the time. Kind of surprised to see it still sittin
  7. Not a lot of pictures lately, however the red headed Florida correspondent sent these in yesterday- I did see a few big Mack trucks- This B model has been at this place on 422 in Pa. for a long time. I see it's been moved since the last time I was by there. Sharp looking Superliner I saw near Roaring Spring, Pa. Decal that Fuzzy Buzzard gave me at Winchester. I saw a girl in a car at a red light. She sure has a lot of stuff in the back seat. Sonny Pruitt truck in Winchester. There were a few golf car
  8. That was surely the biggest, and something that most of us have wanted to do at one time or another but could only dream of doing. Kyanite Mining Corporation still owned that motel until a few years ago, then they sold it. Gene Dixon was the owner of Kyanite Mining then, then Gene Dixon Jr. took over. They have both passed away and Gene Jr's son Guy Dixon runs the show now, and they are still among the richest families in Va. I wouldn't know Guy Dixon if I saw him, but I remember seeing Gene Jr. in Dillwyn in the 80's. He was driving a brown and tan Chevrolet or GMC pickup, with a dog box
  9. Sorry about your issues Billy, but good to hear from you again. Let us know as soon as you get that new tablet, ok?
  10. Well thank you, thank you very much indeed!
  11. Indeed. It's still hard for me to believe that people actually voted for her, and that idiot AOC, and that idiot that wears the toy cowboy hat, and that idiot who thinks she's an Indian, and that idiot who's going to take our AR-15s, the idiot who's going to have free everything for everybody, and all the rest of the idiots who call themselves democrats...
  12. ...and just how do you know where I was and what I was doing?..you been following me?🤨
  13. You're welcome, it was a good show, as always. I don't think there were as many trucks as last year, but there was a lot that I hadn't seen before.
  14. She's planning to fly up-on a plane- later this month to go to Colfax too. She flew from Sanford to Roanoke, round trip, for $55. You can't beat that, it takes $55 in gas to get from here to Danville, and when she sends me a text message saying that she's on the plane in Sanford, I leave here going to Roanoke. A couple of times she was on the ground in Roanoke before I got there, and i've never had to wait more than a few minutes.
  15. It's a good little show, no doubt! It used to be a big show, until I went to Macungie one time. Zina from Florida flew up to go too- on a plane.
  16. I love this stuff, true examples- The late Gene Dixon, owner of Kyanite Mining Corporation, once tried to check in to a fancy motel in the Norfolk/ Va. Beach. They refused him a room because he looked liked regular folks, and he had been drinking, as the story goes. He bought the motel and fired everybody. Johnny was in the Southern Belle Truckstop in Berkeley Springs one night, got to talking with a couple of other drivers in there. When they left and went outside, one of the others said "what are you driving?" He pointed to an F model with a load of green lumber and said "that Ma
  17. This was probably my favorite truck at the Tri State ATHS Show in Winchester last weekend. I've always liked the D-860 GMC's, ever since I was a wee lad, probably because one used to pass by my house several times a week when I was a kid. You could hear that 6-71 coming long before it ever got there, so we always had time to run to the front yard to watch it go by. I really think that truck was the reason I always wanted to drive a truck. Now, after 41 years, the thrill is gone, but... I was thinking that this truck might have been the one Fred Craig had, but I do not kn
  18. Sorry for my tardiness with the pictures, I sent the film off to be developed and I just got the pictures back😁
  19. Missed a couple, farmer52- And this beautiful B53 has been at about every truck show i've ever been to- the owner is another really nice guy too.
  20. I saw this fellow wearing this Watt's T shirt so I asked him who he was and he said "Fuzzy Buzzard". Super nice guy, it was nice to meet him. Here's Fuzzy Buzzard leaving in a cloud of smoke- And one of the nicest looking Superliners i've seen- And all the rest of the pictures are here- the yellow GMC D860 was outstanding! https://www.flickr.com/photos/28526133@N04/albums/72157711144761641
