Old Blue

Old Blue was given to my dad after his first cousin's husband died.  They were very close, and he loved daddy and wanted him to have this truck.    



Old Blue has seen better days; the floorboard is rusted through in spots and I am not sure if the heat works, but it is a perfect addition to the country!

For more Midweek Blues check out The Dusty Cellar.

  6. That really looks like a painting. I wouldn't think of that angle but it works great. The old truck reminds me of my father who always had an old truck on the farm.

  20. Hi S.S, I like your old man's truck a whole lot!
    My guess is that it is a 1970 F100. It could also be an F150 but most were still 100's. I am sure that if it could talk we could hear some fun tales.

    My dad had a 1958 that we auctioned off before he died. A fellow near Omaha, Nebraska, in Ft. Calhoon, bought it to restore. It was pretty nice as was, one owner and low mileage.

  23. Love the composition in that we don't see all of the truck and beautiful processing.
    A really nice 'art' piece!

    Thanks for your visit!
