When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Well, I didn't have any current pictures of my truck because, well, it doesn't look like much (but I like it a lot). Besides, I have pictures of all my junk all over this board, but anyway, I snapped a new one today for your viewing pleasure. This is how she sits today.

Tighten it till it strips and back it off a quarter turn.

I've always thought those Hudson trucks were the coolest.

Re: Truck sex appeal, bizarre as that may be

The 67-72 SWB trucks are quite hot right now so hearing that people were more interested in the truck doesnt surprise me.

Yeah, but this has been going on for the roughly 20 years I've owned the truck. I guess these have been popular since they were new.

Re: Truck sex appeal, bizarre as that may be

I have experienced this with my brother's K10. People ignore my '69 and dads Camaro all day heading straight for the truck! We parked them in the wrong order...Should have been '67, '68, '69

My truck's not American, so most of you are probably going to hate it. Here goes anyway...

I like that Mazda! Probably has a billion miles on it with very little maintenance needed. Dad had an 84 long box Toyota pickup, thing was stronger and tougher than you'd think for a dinky pickup with a 4 cylinder. We worked that little dog hard and all it did was wag its tail and ask what else it could do for us. Rubber mats and a 5-speed manual, plain as Jane could be but a great little truck.
