Thumbs up I am a ''PICKER'' and didn't know it......LOL

Anyone see the new show on history channel last night about the guys traveling across Illinois/Iowa rummaging through folks barns looking for old good stuff?

I have been doing that for years.....and just thought I was overly-friendly...LOL
Here, there is a name for it.....PICKING!
I toldmy wife....now here is my new project. I will not only look for old trucks and cars....but AMERICANA also....like number-dummy did.
I get excited when I see old tolkheim gas pumps and old porcelean signs and whizzers and anvils and swords......so I am now going to set up my picking tools and head out across America.......soon....maybe PENN DICK will go with me to keep me company.....LOL

ksmith203 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
same channel next show was Pawn Stars. They bought a harley and at the shop when they went to pick it up had a 51 or 52 f1 sitting in the backgroud. It had a cool paint job on it. I was excited every time I see one on tv.

I saw that last night and went nuts. That's me, except in an E-350 stretch rather than a Sprinter. Great show. The Pawn Stars shows are great too. Stu

Kevin...my buddy has a cherry 51-52 dumptruck. I mean it is real nice and original. He is wanting to sell but cannot get a price in his head.
I have tried picking at his place and only got a few things...LOL

Bill - put the van body back on then we can get an enclosed dragster trailer - you and your cat can sleep in the van - Dawg and I will sleep in the trailer.
Who ever can stand up and move gets to drive for the day.
