I have a 66 ford truck. I have a uncle who has a 48? chevy truck I plan on cruising this summer with to shows in our vehicles. I also have skeltonal remains of at least 3-5 trucks I saved parts from.
I had a uncle who had a car lot in the 60 and 70s. He also bought stuff after he sold out. If the car wasn't running good he would pull it to his woods and park them. He had a good reputation and wanted to keep it. He had one row of at least 10 of the 63-66 galaxys. He had some 48-52 chevy trucks and a lot of cars. Even a big old 58-60 buick. After he passed away my aunt said I could have anything I wanted. I thought I would get a 58 panel ford. A few years after that people got to sneaking onto the place and breaking in. She got tired of that and had ALL of them crushed. at least 50-100 almost complete vehicles.
I've had a '53 F-100, two '61 F-100s(including the one I drive now), two '54 Chevy stepsides, a '52 GMC stepside, a '61 GMC Carryall, a '69 Suburban, a '71 International 1/2ton 4x4, and a couple of International Travelalls(a 2x and a 4x).
For cars there was a '68 Road Runner for me and a '56 Bel Air and a '73 Satellite for my wife.
Only brand new car I ever owned was in '73...an AMC Gremlin P38 401 package.
I'll list my fleet as long as none of you send this to my Wife!!
1962 F-250 4x4 262 I-6, 76,000 miles
1965 F-250 4x2 302, 124,000 miles
1965 Shorty with 76 F-250 running gear (my Dad's)
1967 Mustang Coupe, 217 HP 289
23 Antique Farm Engines dating from 1908 to 1925
Fairbanks Morse, John Deere, Maytag, Economy, etc
1940's Gibson Model A
1955 Oliver Super 55
I think I will stop here, just making this list is scaring me. The old Gal knows how to surf the Web.
Ok, the current fleet looks like this
01 KTM 520 w/plate!
77 VW Conv (currently apart in the garage)
70 Chevy C10 400/400 (my newbie)
