Heavy metal

The Napa classic car show we visited this weekend provided this pic of some souped up trucks that caught my eye. I need a new truck sometime this year and one of the above would be perfect....0-60 in 5 seconds...super builder! Mind you that paintwork would never survive my throwing about of the essential ingredient to a good job...mersey grit!

I like the style of vans like this.

There's one chap round here who has something similar, and I can't help admiring the work he's done on it.

And at least he doesn't tear-arse everywhere as well...

What a picture,what a photograph, lets say what a wierd angle for a piccy especially when someone has spent long long hours tarting a 50s truck up to show spec and no doubt standing proudly next to it and all we get is Thuds rear end :-),did a few of the steam rallies this year including the Daresbury one with loads of vintage cars,tractors,steam engines etc.
