Trucks in the Wild

This thread may already exist, but I love the seeing these trucks in the wild. Not at a show, not in storage, but just out in the real world.

So please, share the random ones you run across. There's a couple around me.

I ran across this one at the local BigBox-Mart.

Blue truck in the Background is mine. Cool sand through paint job is a 72 that pulled in while I was at the convenience store.

Re: Trucks in the Wild

I saw this one while waiting at red light on my way to the local big-box store. Beautiful truck. I've wondered if it belonged to anyone on this board.

Re: Trucks in the Wild

Another spotting today. I see this one frequently around town. It's rough and has mismatched doors, but I don't care. Any time I see an old C10 I get excited.

Re: Trucks in the Wild

Does this mean I get to use my Steve Irwin voice when reading the captions with the photos?

Re: Trucks in the Wild

Now that's pretty cool, who can talk more about how this is done with the spare on the front bumper and the front license plate mounted like that? What else is there, jack or anything?
