Driving my truck into town!

Post by wv model AA » July 21st, 2013, 4:35 pm

I finally drove my 31 Ford Model AA Dump Truck into Shepherdstown, West Virginia. I got plenty of smiles starring at the truck especially when I hit the horn. :mrgreen:

I have to give special thanks to my friends.

First: Earl Fitzgerald of Sturgis Hauling & Restoration, Bethlehem, Conn. He came to down to visit and he fixed my starter and tweaked my carburetor to make run nice.

Second: Doug Jones for fixing my tail lights and getting the chance to ride and drive in Shepherdstown.

As we all know; it helps to have 2 guys working on the truck and sharing old truck knowledge.

These pictures were taken at the Shepherdstown's Train Station next to the Norfolk Southern Line.

AHOOGA - Keep on Trucking!

From one AA Dump Truck owner to another: "Happiness is dumping a FULL load!" :lol:
Or "We get paid to get our rocks OFF" :roll:

Thank you all for your kind remarks

It’s an older restoration about 20 years ago. It’s what I call a “15 feet stand back” appearance. Some bubble rust is starting to show but still in good shape and fun to drive. That’s all it matters. :)

What’s weird is that I’m not a fan of the white walls but my wife loves the white walls. When people see it; most of them remark how they like the white walls. Tires are like new. So I’m slow & low pimp’n with my white walls. 8)

Though you may not drive a great big Cadillac
Gangster whitewalls TV antenna in the back
You may not have a car at all
But just remember brothers and sisters
You can still stand tall
Just be thankful for what you've got
Though you may not drive a great big Cadillac
Diamonds in the back
sunroof top
diggin' the scene
With the gasoline
gangster whitewalls
TV antenna in the back
You may not have a car at all
But just remember brothers and sisters
You can still stand tall
Just be thankful for what you've got
Diamonds in the back
sunroof top
diggin' the scene With the gasoline
ooh ooh ooh
Though you may not drive a great big Cadillac
Gangster whitewalls TV antenna in the back
You may not have a car at all
But just remember brothers and sisters
You can still stand tall
Just be thankful for what you've got
Diamonds in the back
sunroof top

With the gasoline
With the gasoline
