Welcome from another Michigander. What part of the state are you from? I live in Kalamazoo. You have a great looking truck there. Enjoy it before the snow starts to fly.

There is a great 48-56 Ford truck club in the Detroit metro area called Klassic Haulers.
They meet in Livonia once a month, but come from all over the city.
