fridge panel on the island

Finally got a day off to get some pics. A friend of mine dragged this home and I haven;t asked him what his plans are. I was off on a mission to get some slick truck photos at a great slick sight and this was just a couple miles down the road so we did both.....

In my sig is a 54 gmc with a cummins. It was owned and converted by a friend of mine who is a parapelegic (from the waist down) who ran it for years with hand controls. His daily driver is an 82 chev one ton diesel 4x4 and also a 65 impala ss. He does all his work himself and operates a john deere 350 dozer and the 3 small excavators he owns. He tows them with the 82, but used to do it with the 54. I'm thinking that's what you meant by a cripple mobile. I could see him doing something like that with a panel, but he wouldn't be caught dead in a ford.

thats exactly what i meant. i am also a parapalegic and i want to find a panel someday and make it a drive in kind of deal rather than transfer and disassemble the chair lie i do now in my DD. currently my pickup sits too high for me to get into. people tell me i should make it sit lower and all i can say is "why would i want to do that? i already spent too much money lifting it." lol. ill get around to it "someday"

He never upgraded from the 82 because those era of chev 4x4s are so low. He uses a folding chair and pulls it up onto the floor in front of the passenger seat Upon arrival at the jobsite, he transfers to the chair and rolls to the trailer fender and pulls himself onto the excavator or dozer and away he goes for a good 8 hr day, many times way longer. He broke his back topping a huge maple tree about 30 years ago. A bunch of us finished off his half completed house while he was in rehab, so he had an easier place to come home to and raise his family. He fabbed up some hand controls for a kubota tractor and did field mowing and everything else evolved from there. One of the excavators he turned into a stump grinder of his own design and manufacture. He removed the counterweight and replaced it with a 97 hp deutz diesel running a 4 cyl hydraulic pump, powering a 30" dia carbide toothed wheel mounted on a 3" shaft running in a portion of the original bucket. It eats any stump on any terrain in minutes. He has 2 dump trucks, both with 4 speeds, a 51 chev 2 ton and a 48 chev two ton, so His employee drives them, but Tim is the sole equipment operator. He does all the maintanance on all the equipment, no matter how major. I know this is kind of off topic, but had to share. I always felt he could inspire others to tackle big projects. I'll ask the guy what he's gonna do with the panel........jic

Hijacking? You gotta be kidding. This thread is way more meaningful if it could help people in any way. A picture of a long abandoned panel truck is cool to share, but I think the story that it happened to open is better. I'll look on my old computer after dinner and find some stump grinder action photos....Oh, and I think most of my early posts would be considered hijacking. I have only lately figured out what the term means, and am trying to learn to start my own thread when I have something to share about myself.

Got to love those panels; got a buddy who installed the seats from a windstar in his panel (54 F100) two sets of buckets and the rail system which allows you to slide the bench seat forward or remove it to haul supplies.

Might be the answer to us not having anything with a back seat. It's kinda cold in the back of the big grumman stepvan. Here's a picture of Tim and what he calls his 'stumper.' Hey I think I'm hijacking my own thread now.....

Just spent the afternoon with Tim. He had pulled the gas tank on his 57 and just got it back in, all cleaned and painted. He was glad to hear I'd met another 'cripple' who likes old trucks. He doesn't believe in the internet (huh?), but said he'd love to visit with you on the phone. I will pm you his number. You won't be sorry. This guy is a trip........
