Well done, Croston!!! You did a great job capturing this beast!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Elizabeth.
With its cargo of snow...
Frank L Croston.: Yep, loaded up, Larry.

What a wonderful thing it is, Frank!

An ancestor of the F150, and precariously balanced on four-stud wheels.
Frank L Croston.: More than likely, Ray.
Magnifique !!!!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Claudine.

I bet it starts on the first touch of the starter. I love the bodywork; no need to waste hours polishing it. Looks like to an old car in front, too.
Frank L Croston.: I wouldn't be surprised, Alan, the car in front was a Chevy', another beauty.

Well I suppose these things were built to last..
Frank L Croston.: They certainly seem to, Chris, a good climate for it.
I hope the chassis is in better nick grin
Frank L Croston.: These things can be deceptive, Bill, I've seen a few like it.
Is it in use? It seems so yet it has not moved since the last snow. Look at those fenders. Good capture, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Mary, I think its in use, as for the last snow, that was just the night before!
I can't believe this is still in use looking at the apparent state of it.
Frank L Croston.: I have seen a few like this, they are very deceptive.

Amazing. Looks like it is resting on the ground...does it 'go'? I love the mottled rust.
Frank L Croston.: It was pretty low, I would imagine it does 'go'.
love it and a great find Frank... even the chrome rusted off of the bumpers... i looks even better in the snow....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Peter.
