Dad received a call a month or so ago from the son of an old friend.
The conversation went something like this….
“We are finally ready to sell dads truck. Are you interested?”
The old friend is Al.
Al and his family have been our family friends for as long as I can remember. Not just acquaintances but friends that family vacation together. Friends that church together. Friends that are important to one another.
Some of my best memories include this family.
Al passed away a few years ago.
Dad remembered Al’s truck. It’s not just any ole truck. It was a super cool truck and as soon as Dad talked about it, his eyes lit up. Dad said I would love it.
He talked to Steve and I about buying the truck and asked if we were interested in going in and owning it together. We could use it for hauling furniture and since it had the “cool factor” it could go to car shows and such.
For a few weeks we talked logistics because the truck was currently in North Georgia and we would need to pick it up.
The weekend arrived.
It would be a quick trip. Drive up one day, spend the night and come back the next day.
Ya’ll, Atlanta traffic is nothing to kid about.
What should have taken us 7 hours, took 10.
However…………it was worth it.
Meet Lucy. The perfect redhead.
She is a 1966 F100
We had planned to trailer her home so all that was necessary was to drive her up the ramp to the trailer
She’s so pretty and we feel honored and blessed to have something that belonged to our dear friend.
Dad lights up when he drives her. He said that he never dreamed that he would ever own something like her. He’s owned a lot of really cool cars so that’s saying a lot.
Welcome to the family Lucy.
You might be way cooler than any of us.
