Re: Vintage picture thread

Not exactly a vintage photo, but a video interviewing the Chief Engineer who designed our squarebodies. Paul Hitch says the 1973 truck was his proudest achievement:

Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.

I remember that truck was in a PV4 magazine right up, a typical loaded down 4x4 with period accessories, but it was originally painted tan from the factory, was repainted for the show.

Re: Vintage picture thread

Photo I took of a brand new '75 C 20 Scottsdale with camper on a dealerships lot. Yes, the dealership installed the camper and was selling as a complete unit. No, I didn't buy it, was in junior high, no license, no job, but was smart enough to know these were classics back then.
