    "I knew the job was dangerous when I took it,bok,bok,bok,bok!!!!!
     
  5. WOOO...That's cool Groucho! Is that an International?
     
  6. Yes, a 54 if I remember right. I drove it for about a year or more, hauled shit for my shop, then used it repeatedly to move from my Condo to my current house. As small as the bed was, I made a bazillion trips (that's a lot:D). The toaster and a bar of soap, then a lamp, 3 boxes of clothes and another lamp.....well, you get the drill. Luckily, at that time, gas was a lot less than $2 a gallon because it averaged only 8 MPG for some weird reason

    That lighter brown looks really good - maybe the rest of the wheels should be lightened up!
    Or match the spare to the darker brown... then paint the grill the same color.

  8. Hmm....darken one,or lighten three!!!! I'm gonna look for a darker brown for the spare...
     
  9. Lazy fuck:rolleyes:

  11. If you were older, you'd remember a show on TV called..."Love That Bob". Well, you're THAT Bob that I love. But, seriously, go the extra mile to make that truck YOURS with the original intended changes..............PLEASE
     
  12. Wasn't that Bob Cummings?
    I'm gonna try to paint the grill this weekend. After I get home from the Diecast Convention on Saturday.

    Great to see the new wheels last night! I'll get the pics uploaded today, at some point for you.

    After seeing this truck, I would say the only thing I would do is change the lettering on the door for your personal tastes and just drive the hell out of it. That truck is awesome! The steering wheel was a good choice too! Looks right at home in there!
     
  22. Not gonna do much to it. Kinda like it the way it is...
