Speaking of, I drove this tuck last night. Drives pretty good for an 80 year old piece of machinery. The mechanical brakes work great too! I'm glad that I spent the time to fix/adjust them. I also re-sealed the manifolds as they had developed some leaks.

I went for a ride in the 31 today.. WOW, cars have come a long ways in 80 years... To think they can practically drive themselves now while cruising around in that truck is pretty cool..

So what else is left to do? Will you be posting pics of the old guy with his truck?
