Wow. A 1947 truck. Old... but cool, nonetheless.

Wow, it's great to know that people are still driving these old beauties!!!

I may only be 19, but I know that NOTHING is made as good as it was back in the day. Back when they made things to last!!!

So my dad and me bought a 1958 Chevy Apache, and are now driving that around instead of the 2008 Nissan Frontier...

Gotta love the old trucks, that were built to never die!!!
