As many of you know I own my Grandfather's 64 Plymouth station wagon. He bought it new and it has been in the family ever since. It has hauled more kid than most minivans will ever dream of. It worked hard all of it's life, and though it was well maintained, it has it's share of wear. The other vehicle he bought new is a 1969 FORD F-100 pick-up. Unlike the wagon, it was used mostly for camping and hauling things when needed. Over the past few years he has used it less and less and I put a bug in his ear that if he ever wanted to sell it, I was his man. Well, he turned 93 a few weeks ago and he deiced that if he had use for a truck he could ask my dad or myself or one of my brothers for the use of our truck. So he gave me a call and said "Jeremiah, I've decided I'd like to sell you my truck" So naturally I almost tripped over myself to get to his house as quickly as I could (I didn't want to seem to eager ) It is incredibly clean. It has 51 thousand original miles. The interior is mint. Like I mentioned before he takes good care of his stuff. As it sits right now it has a camper canopy which I plan to remove, but keep for occasional camping outings, like vintage trailer meets. With a good washing and buffing I think it will shine like the day it rolled of the assembly line. I am very excited about it and happy to have an old truck back in the fold. Now I have my Grandfather's car and his truck. I feel pretty fortunate.
