Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Out for a nice long drive and then home via Morrissons for gas and some food.

Itís really a pleasure now, only filling up gas and checking vitals, driving the rest of the time.

Every time I park it in a regular carpark I realise its large.





And home via a spot above Rochester and the Medway river.



The last part of the drive is dual carriageway and it keeps surprising me in how easily it approaches license threatening non-Warp speed.

Makes me smile.

Then of course reverse down the side of the house.

Done in one action.

Andy cast another gas pedal as he was not happy with the previous one.

Looks just fine to me.

For those interested in Mate Dirks Thames Trader cab he found.

Collection on Saturday morning at sparrows fart and then homeward







Unloading made easy if your friend says just put in some Diesel.












Dirk had hardly unloaded and the boys were straight in.

Even if nothing gets done, its a place to expand the imagination



And maybe less rust but certainly a Love it or Hate it car at a dealers.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Right.........


Associated Charity time.


On our 2019 Road Trip Dennis, Craig and I will be visiting Clem and Kim Johnson in Fayetteville Arkansas again this year.

Trip reporting thread will be here:

http://forum.retro-rides.org/thread/...ennis-reloaded

Unfortunately we are traveling too early by a month this year.

I have mode two of these amazing charity events in the past.


HOWEVER.....


I would still like to appeal to anyone who has the financial ability or inclination, to support Clemís attempt to support for the Toys for Tots campaign in Fayetteville where he has yearly shindig with food, trucks and music at the Tuba Trucks workshop www.tubatrucks.com
Clem arranges and Sponsors a large part of it himself.

Toy Drive is described by Wikipedia as:

Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. The program was founded in 1947 by reservist Major Bill Hendricks.

More info here.

https://www.toysfortots.org/

So if you feel compelled to contribute a toy or support to the drive please contact Clem via Tuba Trucks website and email or call to establish how you can help.

Poster lifted from FB.




I do hope that those who can attend and bring a toy in October will do so and get to meet some amazing people in the deal.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

On my drive tonight.



Under the bonnet/hood.

Check out the paint.



Garage find after 12 years locked away.



Far from perfect, but certainly responded to all the attention it gets.




Looking for a very good tailgate, and an original, working Radio if anyone has a lead please.
