http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=483819 now here are some of the bad. She wants a daily driver not a trailer queen. Thanks and Wish us luck.

Oh and for you that do not know, Darrah is my 14 year old, and we do everything together.

Re: My Daughters First Truck

Really had a great time today Darrah started learning to drive her truck and she did great. I took her to a friends pasture and the fun started. Made dad proud. Took a phone video enjoy.

Watched your video, that is one cool kid there. Very special thing you have with her, brings back memories for me also. The truck is a gem, needs a little lovin, and your daughter will be the coolest kid in school someday.

Re: My Daughters First Truck

Thanks Guys,
The funniest part to me is, she was so nervous, that when I asked her to turn right she actually raises her right finger to make sure she turned the right direction..

Re: My Daughters First Truck

Got to tinker in the grage today and Darrah wanted to do something to her truck. I asked what she wanted to do besides drive. She said the bumpers looked like they needed some attention. So we spent the day on the bumper and grill. She has always had a thing for Black and tourqoise.
