Tony,

The Roundup will be June 25-27 2020 in Huron, SD.  Hope the pickup can make it!

Easy....he's no spring chicken.  Let's just pray for another day before 3 more years!  :rolleyes::D:D

I like the little smooth things he did.  Bumpers are tucked tight, the tailgate airbrushing, wheel placement is perfect, stance correct, everything just flows.  I still think SEMA next year.  Would that be considered a short bed or lonb bed?  I thought it was a 8' but now looks like 6' since smoothing and lowering.

      That's what I was thinking Troy at 72 ,three years can be a life time.:lol:

      It's a short bed. I need to get it out of trailer and drive it and see what all needs attention and start enjoying it.

        I've been busy with year ends and Antique show meetings, along with trying to get dirt work done on new shed . along with final check off on building so we can start on electrical. Also trying to get lots of updates done on the 1456 & 1468 & 806 before World Ag Expo in Feb. then into the Antique Show in April , Santa Margarita in May and Alabama in June. THEN I GET TO RELAX!

Tony your getting an A+.  You retired and are spending time doing what you love, your not sitting in front of the TV and being negative.  Your are having the retirement that I would like to copy.  Thank you for such an inspiration

I think because you have so much on the go that's what keeps you going. Sitting around doing nothing is bad for you... imagine a truck that sits parked and not used for a length of time... everything starts to seize and runs poorly when you finally do decide to use it. I suggest you keep doing exactly what you are doing...plus I really enjoy reading all about your projects and adventures 🙂!
