New Arrival!

The truck arrived today as scheduled.  The car carrier driver called around 1:30 when he was about four miles away to say he couldn’t get any further because of low-hanging branches along the roadway, so I had to call a flatbed truck to get the truck the last mile to our house and down the driveway.  The carrier driver felt bad he couldn’t get back here and cut his fee by $50.  The flatbed driver helped me back the truck into what will be its resting place until it gets running, hopefully soon.

The brake pedal and clutch basically just go straight to the floor with no resistance at all.  The outside looks good, as I expected.  The paint is very nice and the chrome is probably a six or seven out of ten.  I knew it was but it sure is a small truck.

Here are some pics of the truck when it arrived.
