This truck was in a Junk Yard & A True Basket Case
So there is hope for them all

Time to get to work on the frame

Now the cab is on a new frame for now, and easy to move around

I was not joking about the truck being a basket case, but new floor pans

Already looking better

Back to the frame, as you can see, it is a family project

Truck Bed was ready and then I found these wheels "ET Fuelers"
Fell in love with them, so back to the bed for some tubbs

Dan always undercoats Fenders, Protection on the Road, from Starburst dings

2 3/4" Wheel Tubbs
Now the wheels will work great

Now, the Wood has to be Measured, Cut, Groved, & Re-Stained for the Tubb Installation
All of that work, because I had to have those Wheels, I might be Dan's worst customer

Christmas present this year
Dan surprised me with this Trunk
Peggy Ann Truck Stop, Rockwood, Tennessee

Try to make long story short
My father lied about his age when he was 15 and joined the Army
Back then, they put them on a bus and took them to Boot Camp
The first stop was Peggy Ann Truck Stop
My father thought "Peggy Ann" was the prettiest name he had ever heard
And guess what, your right, my name is Peggy Ann
And did I mention I am from Tennessee
Orange had to be the Color of my Truck

My truck was even used in a Wedding
Rings on the Grille
