Love that truck! I would love an old truck like that to drive around.
It’s badass. There are some old ones around town. Not too long ago, I saw a refurbished red Jeep truck from the 70s. I have pix of the green one, which I haven’t seen in a while.
You know I love jeeps…I think they were CJ’s and SJ’s from the 70s…I would love to have a Silver Eagle one.
Silver Eagles are cool. So are the Golden Eagle ones.
I had forgotten about the Golden Eagles….I looked some of those up…pure seventies…I would love to have one.
Yes, it is!!! 🙂
Does your car club have anyone with an old truck?
Yes, several people and we do too. a 1936 Chevy, and 1949 Dodge Grain Truck and 1951 GMC….Trucks…it’s what makes the work go smooth! 🙂
I have a 2008 Nissan Frontier 4×4. When I lived in Texas, I drove a 1999 F250 XLT Supercab farm truck (I’d like to have it back).
I’d love to have an older truck.
Older seems to be better, although, the computer stuff is rather nice until it breaks
Too much computer stuff can be dangerous. It interferes with the ability to be more aware of your surroundings. I flunked many teens that had grown used to backup cameras and didn’t know how to use the rearview mirror…or even turn around. Cameras had to be turned off to complete a driving test.
Too much dash nonsense for me. I don’t want to be so confused that I can’t find the volume button on the radio or the A/C. I drive a stick so, I don’t want too many distractions.
Our grandchildren are all learning on a standard…for just that reason…to actually learn to drive.
Were you a driving instructor? How cool is that
For nearly two years…October 2014 to August 2016. I’d still be doing it if they hadn’t messed with me. And, stupid me, I’d already worked for our DMV from 1992-2001 in the Law Enforcement branch. WHAT was I thinking? Power politics doesn’t get better with time. It gets worse. The only difference on the second go-round was, I had a shorter patience for the bullshit. I took their crap in the 90s.
Government never shrinks. It just grows and grows until it crashes.
I’ve posted some about it:
I think you saw the last one with the dog.
I laughed out loud!
A funny story about computers…so many of the tractors here have gps…makes the rows straight, nothing to do but sit in there and play on your phone until you get to the ends then you do the turning around. A kid farming (here) had his gps go out and stopped his tractor. He had to walk a ways back to the farm (the tractor was his transportation and it was stopped in the field). The Farmer was stunned. He said, just get back in there and drive…it’s how it was done before GPS. We all had a big laugh. Terry still farms without GPS…over course, his rows are not always straight….but the growth soon covers that up!
Good lord. That’s too close to the kids having trouble driving without gadgets.
I won’t have to worry about my Nissan being stolen. Not many can drive a stick anymore. Geez, can you even get a standard transmission anymore?
Yes, but that are few and far between
This reminds me of the truck my grandfather had 50 years ago, his was a baby blue color. We used to ride in the back!
That’s a great memory.
