    Hello,


    Chevy trucks take a licking and just keeps on ticking. The license tags say it is registered and running. So, it is a parts runner for the neighborhood shop. One of many in this industrial complex in the coastal community. Or... a forgotten piece of automotive history relegated to a storage bin.

    But, one thing that is upper most in everyone’s mind, whether in front of the brain, or pushed way back, is that “Rust Never Sleeps.” Being located in a coastal community within a block or two of the salt air also accentuates the spread and development. When the coastal fog comes rolling in in the late afternoon, it brings the dreaded salt infused air that doesn’t look too kindly on any metal surfaces. Let along a truck from the late 50s.

    At least it is in one piece and running. It has a lot of nice stock accessories, but it is hard to fathom this cool truck just sitting for weeks on end. A few days in the body shop should become the “Emperor’s New Coat.”

    Pretty sure this was one of Tom McMullen’s rides. Not sure if that’s him standing by it.
