My 65 Good Times

Starting out

When I was 16 Many Many years ago my Dad gave me a 1962 Chevy short box truck, from that point I was hooked! However after a few years and a bit of growing up I was forced to sale it.. That was a ruff day. Twenty years later I found a 1965 Chevy short box for sale. I drove past this truck every Sunday after church for about two years. One day I decided to stop and just ask if it was for sale? At that time it was not. However being the persistent man Im, I kept my eyes on that girl. Well just a few months ago I took another chance and marched up to the door once again. To be honest I did not think the owner would ever part with her. To my surprise the owner said if you want her its gonna cost ya, Again I was thinking I would go home empty handed... NOT THIS TIME ;) The price was right and I had the cash... after handing over the cash she was all mine.
I have just started working on the truck so it is far from complete, Time will tell the direction we go, But it will be exactly What I lost so many years ago.

So glad you got your dream girl ;)It would be great to post some pictures of your truck when you're done fixing her up. She would look great cruising Pacific Coast Highway in So Cal!

Persistence has its rewards!

Wow! What a great story! I've always said that a little determination can go a very long way. You have proven this with your persistence to own the truck of your dreams! Way to go! I am very interested to see what "direction" you are going to go with this truck. With a truck like this, the possibilities are endless! Keep us and the other viewers of this post informed!
