My dad was a preacher, but several his brothers and brothers in law were truckers. My brother Odis was a trucker. So on the road even though the big 18 wheelers are sometimes bothersome I remember the saying among truckers. If you have it, drive it, use it, eat it or smell it, it came by truck. So remember these trucks are necessary. I made one sorta long haul with my brother after I got out of the USMC. I enjoyed the ride and I think the life would have appealed to me. But I did not pursue it.
I never drove a big rig, but I do love a pick-up truck. Glen Campbell sand a silly song once, “I love my Truck”. Many folk fit that song. You are looking at trucks from the early days. They are important now and have always been important. As a matter of fact once my truck taught me a Medical fact. I once bought a prize from the bank. It was a repossessed Red and white Chevrolet. It happened to be a diesel.
I took Sherry a ride in my PRIZE.
Says I, “Boy this thing sure is quiet for a diesel, huh?”
Says She, “ARE YOU CRAZY? THIS IS THE LOUDEST PIECE OF JUNK YOU EVER BOUGHT!”
Well it was worth the price for medical research, I found out what she had known, “The boy is going deaf!”
Most men and some women like pick-up trucks. They are handy. I have to laugh at some bumper stickers though. I read one the other day, “YES THIS IS MY TRUCK, NO, I WILL NOT HELP YOU MOVE!”
I hope you enjoy the trucks, I had hundreds to pick from.
Thanks for coming by the log.
I had a man tell me something about my dad I never knew. Brother Summey (now90+) said to me awhile back, “Jackie every pastor I ever had, borrowed my truck, but your dad was the only one who put gas in it.”
Q: Who has the right of way when four cars approach a four-way stop at the same time?
A: The pick up truck with the gun rack and the bumper sticker saying, "Guns don't kill people. I do."
I actually owned one like the blue one. I bought it for $80. When I drove it to a junk yard to check on a transmission for my car, the junk man said, “Hey that is the truck from the Nash place. He brought that down and tried to well it to me for $50, how much did you give for it?”
That is one of the hard to answer questions. hahahaha
