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.
'55 1st 5-window 3100
