Someone turns 50 today

Just wanted to share the birthday girl. ‘Olive’s 350 has a 5/25/72 date code from Flint MI, so I’m calling it her date of birth haha. This has been such a great truck, and I take a lot of pride in preserving it. I’ve owned her for almost a year now, and have gained a good friend, Larry (Hooverfish) since purchasing it from him.

I thought I had it all figured out. If a vehicle can be so well preserved by leaving it sit alone in a garage all through the years maybe it would work on me. I tried for just one week and they say I came out looking pretty rough. Bad idea, no shower, no food, just sat there under a blanket

Awesome. Mine turns 50 early next month. Mine looks a lot more like what you’d expect 50 to look like than yours does great looking truck!

Very nice at 50. I think Highlanders have become one of my favorites or maybe I’m just telling my age.

Hey Mike, I've gained a good friend too.
Appreciate your great care of Olive also. Love the dog dish & black wall look.

Re: Someone turns 50 today

Hard to believe that people would buy them looking just like that and absolutely run them into the god forsaken ground.

Today if any of us had the chance to buy one like that just-out-of-the-blue like it was a normal thing, we'd have a heart attack and protect it like our first born child.......much less beat the snot out of it, overload it, leave it outside in brutal sun/rain, turn wiring into rats nest with cheapest Kmart radio you can find, etc etc.
