Re: tuba trucks

That's the trouble with repo panels , but a good panel guy can make them fit with time and patients . The picture of the truck says it all

Maude is, in fact, an economy build. Everything is scrutinized for cost and necessity and quite frankly some of the decisions made were not what I personally would have done but I am just the builder of someone else's dream. So here's Maude, close to starting up...


In a word....

Amazing Clem.

Your builds really do speak for the quality of Tuba Trucks' work.

I am so gutted that I could not make it to you this year, and a broken down car and dealership that has not touched it since it got there on Wednesday late, does not help either.

I remember seeing the alignment issues, I may be the 'Doc' but you Sir are a Wizard. A Kick A$$ Wizard at that. Lets not forget the Killer interior too.

Thanks, progress is slow but steady. We have 5 active projects and juggling a little time for each is the hard part, seems nothing ever gets finished.

No worries mate, we will have other years. I'm very jealous of Murphs travels though.

Thanks brother, I appreciate it. By the way… it looks like the toy-drive truck party will indeed happen. Shooting for the 14th of October. Kim said I couldn't not do it because of the kids… don't we hate it when they're right.

OK… here's the sweet heirloom 64. Completely blown apart. The cab has minimal rust and we should drop kick that next week. The chassis has been taken to a commercial powder-coater for blasting and gloss black color, first time to do it this way but if it saves a bunch of time and doesn't cost too much, well good then. All the other parts were stashed out back awaiting their turn.

We got a new friend. A baby black and white is living in the bamboo. He's wild but starting to trust us. It took a week before we even saw him but his cries let us know he needed us. Now he comes up to get pets as well as the milk. Cool little kitten, Kim named him Barney.

Re: tuba trucks

It'll be nice getting back the frame & components back ready to bolt on. Only issues I've seen is threading/fitment.
In time will Barney be joining the others at the house?

Re: tuba trucks

Barney (insert middle mae here) Johnson ?

Pretty guy.

Just got home today and my two are around me nonstop.

They were fed while I was gone, but not loved.

Cars do need that too.

Re: tuba trucks

Hi Guys,
Yep… it's about that time of year again. Tuba Truck's Toy Drive and Cruise-In. This year the party will be on Saturday, October 14th, mostly all day but the music will be in the evening. Join us if you can and give me a buzz or pm if you need sleeping arraignments. See the flyer for more details…

Just got the frame back and they thought to mask all the threaded parts… it looks great, I won't blast and paint one again. Barney is probably going to live at the station, until further notice anyway.

Barney is fun but he's definitely a fighter not the lover type. I come away usually bleeding from his encounters… ha

Re: tuba trucks

This last Saturday, a buddy and I went to Waxahatchie TX to the biggest truck show ever. "C10's in the Park" the last count I heard was 660 Chevy and GMC trucks but they were still coming in. Didn't get a pic of her but Boasted Bertha was there and drawing quite a crowd. This was by far the most variety of building styles I have experienced in one place. If you can, you've got to go to this one next year… see ya there.

Re: tuba trucks

Thanks Clem.

Dang, I live in the wrong country.

Like the Esso, as it was a brand I grew up with.
