This old truck (I'm betting someone out there can tell me what year it is or brand) has been sitting in front of an old railway station. The railway station is currently being lived in, although it can't be comfortable. But the truck has been there so long it has a red oak growing up through the engine compartment.

details: Canon Powershot SX260HS: f4.5, 1/100 s, ISO 200

Gee whiz, it's written right there on the front. That's a 1951 "Job Rated" Dodge. You should buy it and in no time you could have it looking like THIS. The "Grus Egg" would look good behind it.

Guess I'm not seeing the name, but that's okay, Harold. I'm not a motorhead at all (despite having been a tracked vehicle repairer in the Army).


These are the voyages of the small ship, "Grus Egg".

Wow, that baby looks Sweeeet....But I bet it's a rough ride for my old bones. I need a little more cush for my tush, these days!
