Photo of a 1949 Chevrolet 3100 pickup (Mix it up)


I bought this truck in 1990 from a co-worker for 150.00. It was in bad shape.We took it all apart and i do mean all, I had parts every where, it looked hopless everyone said that it would never run again. but a short 10 years later, we took it to its first show and took home a trophy.Reason it took10 years is its hard to find the money to raise two kids and build a hot rod.with the kids grown we took off to many shows having lots of fun driving our truck to all events no matter where the show was.The truck belongs to my son now, We gave it to him when he came back from his first tour in irac.He drives it when he and his new wife can get time to come home for a few days.Yes it is still in my garage because he doesn't have a place to keep it and yes my wife and i still take it to cruisins and shows, we never get tired of driving it we have had it for twenty years and hope my son can enjoy it twenty plus years.
