I really dont think so. You can bet we would rise to the occasion.

We are alittle off topic but the only reason we beat the ***** was we could make ships, tanks, Jeeps etc. faster than Hitler could. Do you think we can make these things as fast as China now?

Here's another picture of one of those ice cream trucks like I posted a couple days ago. That company is called Good Humor Ice Cream. They have a website and a section that mentions their trucks from the past. www.goodhumor.com

My Dad's work truck from the early 50s. Guess that is why I bonded with the 48-50 style.



Here is a shot of a friend of the family that ran the local garage and towing service. Even a service truck gets a flat once in awhile. This shot was labeled 1958.

Thanks Bobby, I have a big farm yard with lots of buildings and room to hide old Ford/Mercury trucks.
I love your sweet 65 Falcon.

I was amazed when I went from the 4:11 to the 3:09 gear. She will run freeway speed with a tow and gets reasonable mileage. Still an overdrive Auto is still something I am looking at. But I would never give up the FE for anything but a Y block. She had an I6 and 4 speed factory and that suprized me with all the options she has
