I think that it’s a result of bad color combination; yellow didn’t mix well with black on this one.

Help me can’t get it going. Help I have a 1955 GMC truck. I have had it for 13 years I have tryed to work on it but don’t know a lot about it. I have been diabiled since 1987 so it makes it hard. I speant a year in a body cast. I love the show and know that you usally work with friends and family. My wife says it’s junk and that its got to go and I keep saying I will get it started and finish it. Chip it needs every thing and money it tight. I am living on a fixed income of about 1,300 a mounth and parts are not cheap. We can say junk yards but thats not getting it. There aren’t any 55 GMC trucks there. My names Ron should I just get rid or it or what. I live in Florida in Kissimmee, if you can help please call 407-397-9727. If you can help or at least help me get in the right direction, please do so.
