    That is awesome, for an original-appearing rig. Is it tu-tone, with two greens or green and black? The roof looks darker than the rest of the body.

    Body, fenders, roof etc. are all the same color green. The running boards are black.

    Huh. Okay. Maybe I need a color gun adjustment.

    This is neat! A fellow I know has a 58 Edsel wagon. He just recently bought a clapped out Ranchero with no front clip. He's planning to build an Edselfied Ranchero just like this. I'll have to show him this photo. So cool. :thumbs2:

    Those Greenbrier trucks are so odd, yet that is one of the things that makes them really cool.
    When I was a kid I got an entire box of old Popular Mechanics magazines from some friends at a yard sale. I remember seeing the article that they did on one of these trucks. I was impressed that I had never heard of them before, and amused by the fact that the idea never caught on in spite of P.M. thinking it would revolutionize the personal truck world.

    This one was for sale next to our Walla Walla dealership earlier this summer.

    Pikeville, Kentucky which is situated in the southeastern portion of the State. Taken in the mid-1950s on Humbly Boulevard, a horseshoe-shaped road the small-sized City is located on.

    I’ve been through there. We have a little saying around here: “Tennessee would be a lot bigger if it weren’t for Kentucky”

    My Buddy stopped by a few weeks back for a visit. He decided to drive his old GMC pickup. He's an automotive nerd like me and enjoys getting the old vehicles together.

    Oregon was supposed to be a lot bigger, until Washington came along.
