  1. I’ll have to remember to show this post to Hubby — he loves talking and looking at cars AND pick-ups. It was a little sad for him a few years ago when he traded in his last pick-up for a more practical (now that we live in the city) SUV.

    • Sandra, these photos were copied from an article in American Heritage about the history of the American pickup truck. It was really good. I’ll photocopy it and bring it for your husband when we meet in Tulsa in October.
