5/19/13 Ride of the week

Congratulations to John Borek, jpb222, of Somerset Pa. on the selection of his 1952 F1 as ride of the week.

Johns truck is powered by a 200 engine with manual transmission and has a 4x4 conversion that he performed himself. It's also his daily driver accumulating more than 20K miles per year and reportedly gets better than 20 mpg. Way cool!

Congrats on ROTW. That is one good looking truck and I am envious of 20k a year and 20 mpg. Well Done!

Congratulations on the ROTW amigo, very nice truck, and I love that paint job. Kudos to you on the 4x4 conversion. I've done one, and it's not easy. I was just in Pa, working at the Susquehanna power plant, did not see your truck on the road up there.

Keep on truck'n
