Trucks from the Past

     Well Carol and I made our way up through old Jerome and to the Ghost town on the mountain. It's like a grave yard for old trucks, but some of them are in mint condition and worth a lot of money. Carol said she felt like a little kid in a candy store when we first started walking in amongst these wonderful relics from the past. She found a handsome old red ford with 2 exhaust stacks coming up into the sky. I chose a sort of menacing looking Semi truck which I found out later was a '49 OSHKOSH.

      There's something about roaming around, peeking inside, and then painting these trucks....to smell the oil and dust, with the coil spring seats, and to bang on the door and hear that solid heavy metal sound...nothing like it!
