Lol yeah. This may not be a modelA or 30s truck but it's still interesting and after the failure of a 68 corvair. ( Still miss that car or what was left of it lol. ) This one is in so much better shape. It was in jackson.

Ok so here's the story. A couple weeks ago i was at my parents house working in the garage with my dad and uncle. Walked in the house to clean up. And passed my mom and a friend of hers. Who were sitting at the kitchen table drinking coffee and talking (you know doing what old ladies do lol) as i walked past i heard my moms friend mention that she was going to junk that old car in her garage. Me being me. I turned to her and said old car whatcha got?. (Fully expecting her to say some sort of modern ****box) she says 37 buick. At that my interest was peaked. I asked why she was going to junk it. And she told me it was her late husband's fathers car. And she didn't see the reason to have such an old car around. I asked her not to junk it and if i could buy it from her. To which she told me. That i could have it. That I'd be doing her huge favor by removing it from her sight.
