I’m helping a friend of mine’s father restore a 1940 Ford truck.
He’s just begun a hobby of collecting cars and the Ford is a nice compliment to his 1964 Corvette Convertible.
As I’m sanding down the bodywork on this old truck, it’s evident that the body lines are amazingly simple, but the overall effect is an elegant little hauler.
It’s a true original, which makes me begin to wonder what’s going to be in my own collection.
I now realize that I will have to wait another twenty years (or the lottery) for me to truly afford this hobby, and by then, I wonder what will be the new classics.
