Thanks for this email, Donald.  The Rod & Custom Dream Truck was one of my
favorite customs when I was a kid.  I dearly loved that truck and kept a pic
of it in my room when I was in the 7th grade.  The truck was being hauled to
a show on a trailer and was involved in a wreck which totalled it.  Broke my
heart.  Alan Gingles tracked down a pic of the truck when we were discussing
it on the list a few months ago.  (Alan can always find the old customs!)
I'd love to see a pic of the truck if you wouldn't mind sending it.  I heard
a while back that some guy is building a "new" version of this truck.
Anybody know anything about this?
