I don’t know when you last cranked up a Chevy big block engine on a 1956 GMC 300 work truck, but I get to do it this weekend. Saturday the sun returns to Moab and threatens to provide enough warmth for a visit to the Moab Auto Show. Splendidly restored vintage vehicles have been parading around town for the last few days and Saturday afternoon they all gather at Swanny Park near downtown for display. Jim, Storm and I grab our coats (just in case) and prepare to spend an hour or so gawking. Most of the cars on display have signs requesting that no one touch them, but the owner of the 1956 GMC truck encourages folks to climb on up in his beautifully restored work truck.
When Joe gives me the OK to shoot a video from the front seat and hands me the keys, I am thrilled. I wish Storm and I had spent more time talking to Joe, but I did learn that he uses the truck everyday in his Colorado hardwood flooring business.
Thanks so much to him for sharing this awesome truck with us. Too excited to take notes while we were talking, I am a little concerned that I have Joe’s name wrong. If I do please forgive me not-Joe. If you want to set me straight in the comments, I will be happy to correct this post. Thanks again for making my afternoon!
