Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Very slow day at the bootfair.



Best part may have been unused, enamel lamp shade for £1.00
Another star for a newly hatched plan, 50p
Little stuffed heart, unused, £1.00
Two wind up Coke items for @craigrk for £1.50
Florida vanity plate off a 50p per item table



Also seen at the bootfair was this VW on Bentley wheels.



And a meat deterrent at a guy with a load of cammo and military stuff for sale.

I did not ask the price, as it would be expensive and of course in England every jobsworth and his aunty would poop themselves if I had it on display somewhere.

Just in case I held up a kid for his sandwiches.





And in Missouri Dennis sold the 1963 GMC Grain truck he bought as yard art 5 years ago for $800.00

He reckons he could have sold it 20 times over with the response he got, and had people offering over his asking price, just to be able to get to it.

He drove the truck there 5 years ago and only moved it when mowing the grass around the pond.

With the wet season last year, and living under a tree, it did start to grow some green algae/moss.



Loaded



Headed out of the bottom pasture.



And headed to its new home, passing the gas station and some more trucks........



Today should be a resting day for me.....

What can I go out and do?

Bootfairs are not everyones thing, but I love saving money. And they allow that.

I personally love the fact that there is very little space to the front, enough for three European size cars, mine is a Ford Focus Estate (not available in USA ) but VW Golf etc.
Then a narrow side entrance and all the space, private, and to the rear.

Dennis could have more a lot more from that GMC but he is a fair guy.


You would park a GMC Dually on the right side of my car, with its rear, just off the street.

A weird thing in this country, I own the sidewalk up to the kerb as well, as I have maintained it over 7 years, and the local council/municipality do zero around here.

A lot of neighbours, including Mickey next door, concrete, or block pave their sidewalk to increase hard standing parking.

I prefer green and grass.





Sally caught me extending my extension cord on Sunday.

I did try to explain that all the joins were stripped, twisted, soldered, heat shrunk, insulation taped, then folded back gently in an S and then ducktape over it all.

It was as safe and secure as I need it to be.

Re: Grizz's Redneck Express 1966 Chevy Short Fleetside RESTO-GO!

Last two weeks have been a bit hectic.

Nice stuff out there.



But in between stuff has happened.

New farmer is really pulling every penny out of the farm, bigger tractors etc.








I also managed to finish and mount the V8 Hubcap that Chris “GrumpyNorthener” had sent me a few years ago.



And hung up, it may move some time.




Bootfair in the morning.
