Road trip! with lots of pics.....

Just got back. Every year I go to the swap meet in Great Falls MT, about 230 miles to the east. This year I decided to take my F-1 with a load of parts to sell.
Fun trip, but the weather wasn't the best going over. Some windshield pics and a few I snapped over there....

The old flatty ran great, but some of the long hills made her work with the load I had....


Thru the mountains.....

A few interesting vehicles for sale.....the '51 F-1 was pretty decent, but not $14k worth to me.

The 39 conv was $50k....a beautiful car.

The '47 Stude pu was really cool....belonged to a local, he brought it by to show it off and bs about old trucks with me. Nice guy....

Beautiful country and a great place to drive your truck. Thanks for the pics, we don't get to see country like that around here...

toby tough is starting off with a positive reputation.
That's some beautiful country up that way. Nice truck too. I'm afraid that the only country I'll se through my windshield at the moment will be the highway to the dump with a load of shingles or construction debris. Someday...

Scott, do you have a picture of you truck with the load you hauled to Great Falls? Did you bring the '51 cab and clip? Awesome photos. It almost seems like I've seen similar vistas lately!

No, I didn't take my trailer or any big parts.....I decided to go lighter and have some fun instead.
