Hi Carla, you're looking well, no big snake this time! Now with the pic I have a theory on that step, besides a convenient place to set a beer. Out here a lot of ranchers and farmers used to put their trucks in granny and then climb into the box while the truck is moving from the cab. I think that's a higher running board for a step to get from the bottom running board into the box. The fields were big and fairly unobstructed enough to allow those folks to do some chores alone.

Here's why mid to later 50's trucks have an advantage over those earlier ones with the angled boxes---LOL!

Funny Doug! Carla accused you of being clever. I told her you must be having a good day...

To view some links or images in this forum your post count must be 1 or greater. You currently have 0 posts. Maybe you should introduce yourself with a new topic?



Sounds like a logical theory to me.

LOL--I've been accused of a lot of things but don't recall that one before! Thanks Carla!

That was an old pic. I'll try to have a "good day" tonight then!

Oh yeah I remember pics of you starting to build that false front on your shop quite a while back. It looks great finished up!
