|This Web Site is dedicated to the Hobby of restoring old trucks. I personally liked to restore trucks so they could be used. I call them "Working Class Trucks". By that, I mean one doesn't care if the logging chains "ding" the paint or the if the wheels get full of mud. The fun was using them after restoration.|
