    Nope...and I don't want to know him, cuz he's obviously a "Chevy guy":eek:. The kid with the bike is probably thinking the same thing:p.

    I think you're asking if we know someone like the Old Fella sitting on the Running Board and I know there's many candidates in the area I reside but they are usually driving Rusty beat up old 80s pickups...

    That work however is done by Tom Fritz and that is sold least as an original but still in print...Quite the accomplished Artist

    One thing for sure, Tom Fritz can tell quite a story with his paint brushes. Every vintage them painting shown in that link tells a story and goes way beyond just being a piece of wall art.

    The guy sitting on the running board is Uncle Jesse. He has 2 no-good nephews that always be causin' trouble. They're just makin' their way the only way they know how.

    At least he had the smarts to keep a cool, old, metal toolbox with tools in his truck.

    Is he wearing a virus mask??!! :D:eek::rolleyes:

    I love your Bus!
  24. Tom Fritz artwork is stunning. I have no interest in owning Rembrandt or a Picasso, but I would love to have a Friz painting in my living room

    They live right down the road from "How Ya Doin' Son?".

    Classic. Beautiful.

    But a sad contrast with the addition of the mask. Looks like he has a box of 'em. Gonna give one to the kid.
    "Don't you give me that there virus you young whippersnapper... put this here mask on. And don't touch nothin'... DADGUMMIT!"

    Hmmm... relative of 3W Larry?

    I'm a little embarrassed that I've displayed a bit of ignorance here. First of all, the old guy isn't wearing a mask... he has a white beard. He has a rag in his hand... not a box of masks.
    Sorry. I can't see real good.
    But most importantly, I had no idea that this is Bluto (Jim) and his Chevy truck.
    I of course somehow missed the posts from Danny and a couple others of you saying it's Bluto.
    I didn't even know that Jim had passed. The thread about the HAMB's sad loss was bumped and I saw it. Now I understand.
    I'm very sorry.
    God bless Jim.
    I hope everybody has a nice Sunday.
