  • Tagged and Insured

    This morning I got the truck insured and tagged. I've already driven it about 50 miles.. Thumbs up, horn honks, and 15 minute fuel stops are something I need to get used to again.

    Hey, Matt, if you have to stop to get gas every minutes, you need to buy more gas each time or check your timing. I bought a '47 Chevy panel truck when I was a kid and it got about 3 gallons to the mile. No joke. Stupid distributor was in 180 degrees off. Other than gas comsumption, it ran pretty well on exhaust.

    That sure is a nice looking truck. You do realize that you will have to start working really hard so that you can look like that truck, don't you?

      Looks like the doors really cleaned up well. The lettering really pops!

        Cute as a button, Matthew. Leave it alone and drive it! BP
        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

        Ayn Rand:
        "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

        G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

          Well... I'm going to rub on the paint a little more.

            Looking good. Bet it rides like a truck. I like the looks of the three-quarter ton models. They just look...well, tough.

                That it does.. But it rides better than my '59 half ton did. The ride is surprisingly smooth for what the truck is.

                  Your back and butt will appreciate that fact after arriving in SB, if it rides that well. <G>

                    A pair of polished stainless steel tubular bed rails would look great on there, plus it would give you something to tie a tarp onto when transporting stainless trim.

                      True.. It rides and drives better than my '59 halfton did. But, with 13K miles, I guess you'd expect it to.

                        That'd be too flashy. I'm thinking about stake sides, though.

                            The long wheelbase helps with that "better" ride. It sure is a nice looking truck. I am glad you are leaving it like it is as far as paint and the lettering on the doors. That is a great touch.

                              I sure like that truck. So how many Studebakers does this make for you now?
