Smoke 'em if you got 'em
Well folks, My poor truck has been stuck in the garage for many a moon. I figured I better get it out and blow the dust off of the poor thing. Its amazing what kind of things can go wrong after the truck has been sitting. I think my throttle is sticking...............

"I had a truck like that once..."

Need to fix that throttle Bobby, my neighbors weren't sympathetic when it happened over at my house. The marks are still there!

I'm assuming those are the same tires and wheels you bought from me a few years back? If so, those tires and wheels were originally purchased new in 1985 to put on my Grandfathers truck. He put up the money and I restored it as an automechanics project when I was a senior in high school. Glad to see you are getting some use out of them, they never saw that much action in the twenty years they were on my truck, I probably only spum them once or twice and the flathead six couldn't do much with them. Nice video.
