    Who says blue and green don't go together. Blue Ridge Mountains, blue water, and a green Studebaker...perfect!

                  John, seeing a bigger pic of your truck shows how nice a truck it really is. what size tires are you running,they look like bias type.

                    This is like flashing red lights at an epileptic, to me. It triggers my need for infinite regression (line up two mirrors, if you dare, and leap into madness).

                    I need there to be a Tonka green pickup in the bed of the pedal car, and a 1/24 in the bed of that, and a Matchbox in the bed of that, and so on. And on. Somebody help me. No, don't make it stop...

                    It's so beautiful.

                        The tires are some off brand, named Power Master. The size is 700-15LT. I chose them because these were the only ones, the tire store I bought them from, could get that looked close to the original Firestones that came on the truck. I still have one of the original tires as a spare (very spare!).

                        This was one of those small businesses set up in what was probably a former 1930's gas station. You know the kind...where they carry a very small inventory, but the wholesaler's warehouse is close enough that if you order tires before lunch, you can have them installed that afternoon.

                        I wanted a black wall tire with the little ripples on the side. At the time I bought them, The owner was fighting cancer, and so was one of my brothers. Unfortunately, neither survived.I miss both of them.


                        Thanks to everybody for the kind remarks. I have had this truck for over 36 years. The lake is less than two miles from my home. I finally got a boat water worthy and spent a few hours fishing this year. So far...the fish have nothing to fear from me!
