A Classic 1955 (or so) Ford V8 Utility Truck

Ford Truck

In the old Minstrel blogging days when the site was still active, I would post Classic cars and trucks from time to time. We now post classics on this blog, but it has been a while. Part of the problem is the cancellation of some of our main car show events due to the DEMpanic pandemic. Hopefully, this year we will get back to normal with the shows.

Regardless of the absence of car shows, we see classic cars and trucks around town either on display like the truck above or on the road being driven by the owner. We see them but sometimes the camera isn’t ready. This time, however, Damsel was ready and captured the classic truck on the lot of our local Ford dealer as we passed out of town on our way for an appointment with the optician to get a new pair of prescription eyeglasses for her.

    Yes, a “Cab-Over-Engine” stake-bed!

    Emperor Polis finally rescinded all of his “Emergency Orders”, and we’re getting back to normal, kinda. Still see sheeple wearing their face diapers, and yes, sometimes even in their cars, with the windows rolled up.

    That truck looks like someone gave it a lot of TLC. Nice paint and woodwork.

    We have a few places that still require masks, but not mandated by the .gov. The hospital and optometrist to name a couple require masks still.

    Damsel and I shake our heads when we see someone driving with a mask on. There are still a few.
