as seen by me today...
I would like to see the metal scraper theives take that one!!! That is actually awesome!!! but sad.
...Man...thats a big tree growing....that truck been sitting a long time.
looks like "someday" passed a LONG time ago...
I want it...
I bet it looks really cool with the tree in full leaves.Yup went to the tree nursery, picked up a little tree to plant in the front yard,never got around to plant it, then the dam truck ran out of gas,there she sets. Gona plant it some day! LOL.
Paul almost the same truck sits down the road from my house with the bed piled high with aluminum cans with the frame in the dirt , the old timers says he's gonna restore it one day but he might take 10K for it!
trucks pretty decent looking for having been sitting that long. I could use those cab marker lights.
I completely understand. Dude is a shadetree mechanic, and had to wait for the tree to grow big enough for him to work on the truck.
white trash anti-theft device
Now thats a wood hauler!!!!!
I don't blame him. That's a '53 Cottonwood Tree. Don't see many of those in one piece nowadays.
Just made the second shot my desktop picture. Really cool shot. Thanks!
I know of a model A roadster in western KS with a tree growing through it just like that....same answer from the owner too.
I love that back bumper!
A lot of those old trucks had a wooden bed floor...
Looks like he is working on the same thing for the van too. Check back 30 years from now on that one.
That is a pretty decent looking truck considering such obvious lack of care. Maybe it is due to the Round-up parties looks like he apparently has for it.
You find some crazy stuff Paul.
Very nice, and subtle too....I especially like the lack of 's
Bed has fresh wood
That will be nice after a good bark off the trunk restoration.
Wonder if they string lights on the tree and truck at Christmas. Would look pretty cool.
At least it's in the shade.
Should be a sign on it saying----My wood is bigger that yours and after 4 hours I don't have to call the Doctor.
Who can say they have better yard art then that truck....
"I told you it's not for sale. I'm gonna make a flower planter out of it!"
i made a delivery last summer (back when i had a GD job) and the shop had a 46-47 Ford F1 on a ramp out front... it took me a second take before i realized it was now a flower bed..... holy moses.... i then noticed it was really trashed, just kept there as yard art.
i'm tryin like hell not to become "that guy", but with no job, there's no money to put into the Falcons.... i do what little i can afford, when the weather permits. these are likely the last Falcons i'll come across that i could have bought, so they'll stay as long as i can manage it.... hopefully never reaching THAT stage!
Now that is a security system that works and doesn't cost anything.
