I posted about this at the Ford Barn too. I know that my 52' F-6 isn't a traditional rod but it's traditional technology and I'm pretty damn proud of my ugly, old truck...... Today I hauled just over 3 tons of old wood to our transfer station, in my '52 F-6. It's an old county truck and has a Hurculese dump bed on it. She's not real pretty but the flathead runs like a top and it has never let me down. On the way, I passed two guys on the side of the road that were obviously having trouble with 2 ton, Isuzu cab-over dump. I pulled off and asked what was up. They said that it just quit. They weren't happy campers and the one guy told me that the truck was less than a year old and it was loaded to the gills with old lumber. They said that they were fine, so I went on. On the way back, I noticed that they were still there. I pulled over again and this time they were more than happy for the help!! I backed my '52 up to their bed and a hour later, we had my bed loaded. They jumped in with me and we took their load to the dump. The younger of the two was in awe of my '52 and was confused when he saw me double-clutch and work the two speed rear end and the older one was just too pissed to speak. After that, we went back and I towed the Isuzu about 3 miles to this guys shop. I would have taken a picture as it would have been priceless but the older guy, although very grateful for all the help, was not in the mood for a Kodak moment. Anyway, it was a pretty cool deal and it's not everyday that 60 year old technology gets to save the day! I'm pretty proud of Ole' Yeller!
