Re: Our Trucks Doing What They Did - Vintage Photo Thread

From an awesome picture link posted earlier.



I love the bed on this truck. The curves, factory fender skirts, and the continuation of factory chrome makes this a very uncommon truck.

Here's one that looks interesting to drive:

Typical work truck, not claiming the spotlight.

Nothing big. Just providing ground support (and fuel) for the plane claiming the world's longest flight. The flight, BTW, lasted 64 days.

Man, Cybil Shepherd was my fantasy for a looong time after that. Oh well, may as well remind myself.

That is great, reminds me of my childhood spent with my grandfather. Everything we did was out of the back of a truck. Fishing or working we spend many hours in the back of a truck and very little time at the house, let alone at the computer.

You know... the front of the hood on the GMC bears a resemblance to an old GM concept car:

Re: Our Trucks Doing What They Did - Vintage Photo Thread

That car in the foreground is the Buick "Y job" that Harley Earl drove to work! Harley Earl was the head of the GM design studio from around 42-58. I saw that car in person recently at a museum near me. I went over twice to see it, those concept cars from GM are huge in my world, damn they were some cool stuff.

Very, very cool that you've seen it in person. I have many pictures of the Y job saved on my computer at home. I keep hoping it will be a guest at a spot within driving distance of me.
