" THE ELDEST TRUCK
( by John Suitor )
Ever wonder how we always seem to come out
on top in the garage when we get into a project way over our heads? We bring them in
practically destroyed and miraculously, eventually, they roll out tougher than

gets his over ambitious boys out of the messes they get into.

In between the trucks there is always work going on with the Jeeps. Only thing is, he doesn't need our help with them. What makes him happy is helping us do ours.

He has a wife of 54 years that understands this stupidity and feeds us.
He has ALL of our respect.
He is our Dad.
We look foward to the next project in the garage; a
Jeep. Hopefully we can help him with
