Planning on buying a 60-66 GMC someday?

Took the one ton Suburban out for a drive today, looking for a photo op. Found a good one in front of the Nunan House, not too far from where I live. See http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/63...48322149_zpid/

Great shot Ed and a gorgeous home too!
Looks like you should charge to "Tour" the grounds and keep the tips.

Ed, I don't even remember seeing one, although maybe I didn't notice. Really neat piece of history that no one thinks about. Nice to see those photos. John

Thanks, John. I took it out again today to a free show held annually at Lost Creek Lake, about a 45 minute drive from my house. Coincidentally, a friend of mine for the last 30 years pulled in right behind me. He's a member of the local Z Car Club. He's got the white 300 ZX, parked next to two 240Zs owned by another club member, both of which have V8 conversions.

See photos below:

In an earlier post on this thread, I mentioned that Darryl Starbird had done some of the work on the one ton Suburban. He helped Dad with the conversion of the rear doors to liftgate/tailgate when the truck was new in 1965, then enlarged the rear wheel openings for the 12 x 16.5 tires three years later.

I recently came across an interesting link by a guy who's apparently obsessed with Darryl Starbird and Darryl's most famous custom car. Check out http://thepredictaproject.org/. Lots of reading material under the "Menu" link. In one photo you can see a diorama of Darryl's first shop in Wichita where the work was done on the one ton Suburban.

I had the privilege of touring Darryl's museum http://darrylstarbird.com/ in Oklahoma a few years ago. The Predicta http://www.darrylstarbird.com/museum_cars/predicta.jpg is on display there.

Those are some interesting links showing the skill of a great craftsman! I had no idea that the "Predicta" went through so many rebuilds. Although as a model building kid I wasn't crazy about "way out customs", I really liked something about the "Predicta" and built a couple models of it. I'm not sure why that one appealed to me so much.
