I took off this morning with excitment and a pocket full of cash for new finds. I was about a mile from my house and all of a sudden the truck starts shaking and the engine light comes on. OH SHIT…NOT NOW! I drove about ten miles to a Ford dealership to have it fixed. Lucky they had saturday hours.
I pulled in and was relieved it happend now instead of 500 miles from now. They diagnosed a few problems. 1200 dollar repair. wow. half was under waranty. It helped. 500 plus bucks later I was on the road. bummer! Toy money to fix my truck
I took off three hours later and started my trip. I hit several antique shops along the way. There were a few toys I wanted but the price was too high. I did find one I liked. It is a 1920’s Steelcraft army truck. Decent deal so I bought it. I also hit an antique toy show. Llots of stuff but huge prices. I passed. Here are some pictures of my morn.
