Just returned from Tuxies Cruise in Riverside CA.  Saw a truck that I had to
tell you all about.  I know this won't appeal to all but, it was really
neat.  It appeared to be a '54 AD 3600 (3/4 or 1 ton).  It pulled in and the
first thing you notice is the twin 6" chrome stacks, behind the cab.  As I
walked up to get a better look I heard a distinct diesel rattle.  The guy
blipped the throttle and it belched nice black diesel smoke from the stacks.
The guy got out and opened the hood.  I asked him what engine he was
running.  hew told me it was a Detroit 453 diesel..  Man it really filled
the engine compartment.  This truck was really detailed well.  It had glack
fenders and a dark green body/bed.  This was the first time I had forgot to
take the camera along.

Also at this cruise was a rampside Corvair with a rear mounted big block
running through an Elorado trans and differential setup.  The guy still
retained about half the bed.  Oh yeah it was blown and had nitrous.

Good cruise
