New addition to the shelf

Like a lot of other truck/car guys I have a collection of small ones on the shelf. The latest came in the mail Monday when I couldn't find one locally.

I didn't have a barn find to load on the trailer so I had to load up a shelf find for it to haul .

48 Chev 3100 that will run a 292 Six.
71 GMC 2500 that is getting a Cad 500 transplant.
77 C 30 dualie, 454, 4 speed with a 10 foot flatbed and hoist. It does the heavy work and hauls the projects around.

Re: New addition to the shelf

Nice. I like the custom on the trailer. I built a model of my truck years ago using a '55. They released a '57 later so I bought that for the grille. Then I found an '84 Vette model partially assembled at a swap meet which had a Crossfire EFI engine... took me 15 minutes to get it for a reasonable price. One of these days I'll find the motivation to change the grille and engine.

I think ya better get some tie downs on that or your driver's gonna have some 'splainin to do.
