Roll-Out Party!

It moves under its own power, out of the garage for the first time in a year!

Re: Roll-Out Party!

Thanks gentlemen. Judging from the paperwork that accompanied the truck (as well as the cobwebs and corrosion) it has been many decades since this truck moved under its own power - even if only out and back into my garage!

Lots more details before it's road-worthy.

Thanks fellers. Sorry the truck's not more presentable. That's a year's worth of shop dust on her, but I can't wash it off until I get my back windows in!

WASH IT? A quick drive down the road will clean off!
