    You ever have one of those moments in front of your kids where you say something like, "I'm buying it for my kids, because all steel might not be around when he gets ready to build one." Well dad made that mistake and I never let him live it down. That was 35 years ago! But since then it's been assembled tore down stored reassembled, put back into storage. Blah, blah blah. A Derecho hits my area and the shed which it's stored must come down. Guess the car gods must think that NOW is the time to begin.

     
  2. Neat truck but what's a Derecho ?

    Straight wind storm as opposed to swirling wind storms.

    A thunderstorm on steroids. 120+ mph straight line winds. Best characterized as a hurricane deep inland. This one stretched from Omaha to Chicago.

    Update: September 26, 2020

    90% of the is finally at my place. I am hoping to be able to start squaring up the frame by November 1st. It sort of feels like hunting for Christmas presents that you've stashed around the house as to all the places I had parts tucked away.

    January of 2018 in a Facebook group post about a local drag strip turned up another image of my truck. It come from the Tommy Shaw collection, and with some digging I found the owner Davern Lambirth of Knoxville Iowa.
