49 to 53 they looked the same. I once had a 52. One of the few things I've sold.

well, here's my 1985 F700 bee truck. has a factory-installed 370-inch propane motor and two 60-gallon tanks. i think it has something over 500,000 miles, but i can't be sure.

at 3.75 mpg, it can get me close to 400 miles if there's no headwind. won't pull 60 mph across texas if the wind is in your face.

back when i ran bees for a living, it carried 140 beehives and i could load or unload it in 45 minutes.

currently it's resting.


every day you do not take a chance is a day of your life that you will never get back.

My wife adorning the hood of the Jeep. The Jeep started out as a 1956 CJ5, then cut in half and flatbed added, Jeep hardtop and doors. It now has the Dauntless v6, o/d, pto trans runs the winch. Not great for putting bikes in the back though.

Wow! You guys have some cool stuff.

Kev, that is indeed a '49 Chevy half-ton that I posted. It had a very sick 283 cu in V8 in it when I got it. It ran just well enough to go to the junk yard and haul home another engine which I put in. They yanked a good running 283 out of an Impala that only had one fender crumpled. The truck was great after that. It still had the original 4 spd box with the granny low.

George -- nice '71, and I love that '59 Apache.

RG -- what an awesome job you did with your Jeep!

Kevin, got a picture of that Ford with a load of hives?

Not a bad gig if you can drive with a TV right above your head showing basketball or mayhem movies all day.
I never was a truck guy, though I owned a lot of VW vans back in the day. 0 to 60 in five minutes. laughing

Wow, that brings back memories. My grandfather had a '49 model that I learned on. I spent a lot of the late '70's and '80's behind the wheel of it hunting pheasants in western NE.

Well Wade you won't see any of the 4 wheel stuff. It's all long gone. Just a bunch of knackered old Enfields and spare parts. Oh and a knackered old guy to boot.

Love your truck HB. That looks a lot like the Ontario and Western RR logo on the back but I guess it could just mean old Willys

ahh, sadly, no.

The Buick is two wrecks put together by a Buick dealer back in the 50s. 53 from the firewall forward, 51 in back. I've had it since 1974. Somewhere I got a photo from the 80s of it with a Beezer in back.

Anyone intrigued by that Alaskan camper, there is one for sale here. I have no knowledge or interest in the sale, caveat emptor!
