The only vehicle my Dad owned for my entire life was his 64 Chevy 3/4 ton step side pick-up. It was only 2 wheel drive and had granny gears. You had to start out in second unless you were pulling something. One time he pulled a tractor trailer out of the mud with it. It didn't have any seat belts and when I was really little I would get to sit on his lap and steer. When I got a little bigger I'd sit in the middle of that bench seat and got to shift the gears. I ground them a lot back then, but it was soooo much fun! Just riding around in that old truck with him was a real bonding experience. My mother sold it after he died... for a long time when I would visit the old hometown, I'd see it sitting in a guy's back yard. It was like seeing an old friend. I'd give it a wave as I drove by... I haven't seen it in about 10 years now. I wonder where it might be now... I miss that old truck!
