What a beautiful spring picture with the flowering crab apples trees behind it. Wish it was spring now....
OK who is the truck buff, Tom or you? Great work bringing Mellow back to shinny new life.
Thanks for sharing.
John, Thanks for the compliment. It is totally TOM ... and... he bought the truck new and kept it in pristine condition, the paint is original, as is most of the truck. He bought it just before we got married. Since he keeps things forever I've never been worried that he'd find a newer model for wife (ha ha). He drove it daily for years, but now only drives it in the summer to work. He is totally fastidious about his vehicles and already has the Sunline spiffed up, even though it was in really good shape.
OK, so in my profile I've added the '76 Nova, also purchased new. He souped up the engine (go fast parts is what I call it, he'd have to tell you what engine, etc.) and had it painted, although it had no rust, new upholstery. We're in a car club and take this one out. Both the truck and the Nova were very common models in the '70's, but, of course, few folks have kept theirs. Driving the Nova in parades is fun as everyone along the route says "oh, Mom had one or Uncle Joe had one". Not a unique vehicle like some of the members of the club have, but nostalgic for many spectators and that's fun for us.
