Where is everyone? Anyhow, I'm Joe, and I am a member over in the NW chapter. I have a truck sitting in Iowa. It's a 53 Ford F-750 fire truck. I need help getting it to Redmond, Oregon. It is located in Miles, Iowa. Here's what's going on. A bunch of the guys over in the 48-60 forum are waving flags of support in a relay race idea. What it boils down to is, I need someone to go pick it up, and do some inspecting, and possibly some minor roadworthiness repairs. I can send some money, and or parts needed to who ever the pick up and repair guy/gal(s) maybe. I'll even send the very loud and very cool siren I have for it (it's way cool). So the general hope is that we can get enough willing members together to get this old gal, and drive for 50 to 100 miles or so, and pass it along to the next guy or gal in the race, and eventually make it to either western Idaho, or Eastern Oregon where I can meet whoever and pick it up. I am thinking on sending a few disposable cameras as well, so that everyone willing to participate can take some photos of their part of the journey, and I when I get a hold of her, i will have them developed for the entire site to enjoy. The draw back is that I would not be able to send a wad of cash for every one to put fuel in it. I guess basically, it would come down to each of the drivers pitching in their own $20-$50 for their leg of the trip. The total run is 1908 miles according to mapquest. You can see the truck in my gallery if you are interested, and the response thread is either the "what to do?" or "any truck moving volunteers" in the 48-60 forum section.
Hi, my name is Joe, and I am a 53-56 Ford truck addict.
I would doubt this is still alive yet but wmjo1953, I hope this all worked out. It sounds like a wonderful way to get people together and share some laughs and fun, but I would have put it on with a trucker with a flat bed trailer doing and an empty return.
