Went to the swap meet last week. Found a couple that qualify for this thread.








Modded back in the day. The rims are new...


... but the engine swap was done a LONG time ago.




And I remember this one from the Shriners' parades in the 60's & 70's. A couple of fat Shriner Clowns in the back seat = all day wheelies!


And the Living Barn Find himself was there.

"Hobo Jack" from the Pickers. AKA Backwoods Jack.


Yes, I know. Could be just ANY homeless person from the quality of this pic. He lives near here (Litchfield, IL?)
He was there w/ an old Ford Ranger and small trailer. Hawking his CD's () and selling some junk.
His website ()...

Pic from the Net.

I believe that fire truck is a variation of the old International KB8. That chassis was used for a variety of applications from fire trucks to cargo haulers to dump trucks. My grandfather had one - I remember, as a 4-5 year old, making several trips to B'ham to pick up a load of cinder blocks with my father.

Great old truck....

Found at the Local Garage



Ran across this when I was getting some fresh tires back in '05, had been sitting in a Barn up in Waimea for 35ish years, not quite what it seems to be. A guy bought it and the local garage was trying to get the brakes to stop it, running it was not in the plans, headed to the mainland for a resto.

Is it a repro of a GTO, or the real thing? I can't see enough of the roof line or C pillar.

Real McCoy but it isn't a GTO, apparently there was a bit of a loose hand back in the day when building and the customer could ask for X, Y, Z slats, vents, etc. or they would just be there when he took delivery. P.O. wasn't real helpful beyond that, don't know if he was the original owner.

Pulled a U-ey when I saw this fresh out of the barn yesterday on a ride.

1948 Indian I'm told. Runs.

For sale? I know a guy who's willing to pay both good money for one and a finders fee.

PM me if you can find out more?
