Son lives in north-west Davenport,  can be to the truck museum in about 10-15 minutes.  Should make him take me there sometime soon.  He used to like going there with his Ram 2500 all the time,  get more chrome for it.

Wow, if Danny's Dad's truck had been one year later, a '58 it could have had a Super-Duty gas V-8 engine,  401, 477, and 534 CID.  Bet those two? assuming there's one on the right side, Small side tanks would not have lasted very long.  I've heard stories of 2 mpg with those engines, but there wasn't much that could run with them.

Just a really neat old truck.  Thanks for posting the picture Jerry.

I don't think we'll see the grumpy old guy here, MTO won't go this far west.  Something about the other 49 states won't let him in so Pennsylvania is stuck with him. 😂

I’d let MTO ride around in my buggy.  Rantoul still keeps him east of the Mississippi River so we don’t ha Ebro worry much. There are lots of local characters far more shady than he.

Thanks for posting the picture of the sheller. Spent a lot of my younger years around one similar to that. It was mounted on a red 55 Chevy.

This was at the cat visitor center.  797 dump truck was huge.  It has a movie theater in the bed.
