    That's amazing, it's like someone just walked away. Good parts and the truck looks like a solid project.

    Too cool indeed.... It's almost like Indiana Jones, If you would have picked up anything the big boulder would have dropped and been headed your way!

    Very cool, enjoyed reading your blog about the old gas station.
     
  12. I like how reading the gas station story
    made me feel.
    Very cool
    Thanks for sharing that.
     
  13. I hope you wear kevlar....kidding.
     
  14. Amazing, in all respects!! Thank you for not only recording it 'as is' for posterity but also for sharing it with us all.
    PF, Paul you are one of life's so very few true hero's. However there is one sad aspect about this, one day this extraordinary museum will probably be destroyed so someone could build an ugly tract house to make a few dollars.
    Like I said, at least we now have a record of it.

    On behalf of everyone here on the HAMB.

    Thank you my friend.


    Doc.

    My friend you are living the life. What a find. I hope that someone rescues those trucks and parts to save them from the scrapper. Thanks for sharing.

    Now that is neat! Just sitting there and preserving a piece of time & history. I would only hope that some of that can be saved. Thanks for sharing a blast from the past.

    Its amazing to think stuff like this still exists with all the vermon trying to make a buck off of everyhting. The fact that no one has taken anything (because most feel they are entitled to it) is amazing. Thanks for the post, it gives hope.
     
  27. Amazing find! The Ford truck is a '39 rather than a '38. Same body, different grille and hood chrome and other minor differences. Wish I had that '39. hard to find a grille that straight with good stainless. Looks like it wouldn't take much to get it or the International running.

    Wow Paul, another great adventure!
    What a neat find, and a great story to enjoy on a very hot Memorial Day weekend!
    Keep the camera handy, I really think you have knack for finding the hidden treasures of the plains of Kansas!
