Our pick-up truck came home from the 'spa' the other day...
...looking...oh, so much better! Here's the thing...it is a 1993 model...which doesn't seem all that old to me...but I guess it is getting on. GMC seemed to have an issue with peeling paint for a few years on their pick-up trucks...and so we thought we would 'touch up the grey' that was showing all over the hood.
I still recall our first truck...
We had a raspberry farm 'back in the day'...and needed a big sturdy truck for hauling tons of berries to market...and so this was our next upgrade.
...a vintage International. We didn't actually drive it much...but on occasion needed a truck on the farm...and this one did the trick. We actually sold the farm...and left the truck for the next owners...and have often wondered why we would have done that.
The multi-purpose three-ton truck was used in season...and out of season. I'm not sure how the calf rated...to ride in first class...but the picture shows that it happened.
We switched to a Ford 3/4 ton pick-up...and used trailers for hauling farm produce and cattle.
We have another truck that has been around the block a few times. It was my dad's....and he repainted it several decades ago...and now we find many uses for it around the farm. What could be handier for getting bark mulch than a truck with a dump box?
