60-66 Chevy Truck spotters thread.

Saw this nice 66 Chevy longbed on Thanksgiving day on Hwy 80 in Rocklin Ca.. I couldn't tell if it had Cal plates or not ( I was driving, on my cell, eating a donut and taking a picture with my digital camera at the same time). Looked like it was in real good condition. Thought I'd share. Post your Truck Spots.

Re: 60-66 Chevy Truck spotters thread.

These pics are not so much a "spot", but one day my buddy Greg was following us somewhere in his '65 panel, so I snapped a couple pics...

Looking at the condition of those tires - must be at a high elevation.

Re: 60-66 Chevy Truck spotters thread.

I find this thread truly entertaining.
Last year, I went down to visit my Aunt and to go to the Rust Never Sleeps Chevy rally. Hilandr451 was the coordinator of that rally and I explained how surprised my Aunt was of my seeing this era of trucks all over the place. From her house to Hwy 101, I saw 4, including a nice lifted 4x4 GMC, about 7 houses from hers. She never noticed them on her way to town and back.
20+ years vs. 3 days.
I have about 200 pictures of different trucks from that trip. Many were at repair shops, and I compared my rig to them. Some were much worse than mine. Some were stunning. And, yes, I am still talking about the 1960-1966 trucks.

Post some up.

The wife and I drove down to Lathrop to take our daughter to play in some man made snow. Saw three perfect candidates for this thread. Asked my wife for the camera, "What camera". My wife planned this for a week and she doesn't bring her camera. The whole day was just a huge photo op. Bummer.
