    So I was upstairs on the phone yesterday (yes, a chair would have been more comfortable...) when I heard a couple of car doors shut. I looked down from my lofty perch to see a husband/wife (?) get out of their car and go over to my truck. The guy turns, standing next to my truck while she snaps his picture.
    Could be because it's a manly GMC? #cool##biggrin#
    Anyway, it's nice to see the appreciation. I'm sure if I left it on the street overnight, someone would repaint my CHIEFS arrowhead, however.
    Hopefully you are enjoying the heck out of your truck, as well!

    Hey Zig , I can relate . Although I don't have my truck done yet , I have a '64 Pontiac Grand Prix that I drive often and many times have come out of a store to find either somebody taking pictures of it ,or posing next to it while having their picture taken.

    And if you had a bed to hold a tip jar you might even get some photo appreciation donations.

    I take my daily driver 52 GMC to the local Saturday night shine and show once or twice a month. A lot of the cars and trucks have "don't touch" signs on them and given the amount of $$$$$ the owners have in paint jobs and custom interiors I understand why. When a family with young kids show an interest in my truck I ask if they have a camera with a phone and then herd the kids into the truck for a picture with one of the kids "driving" or line them up across the flat bed. They always have big smiles.

    Maybe Evan's "tip jar" idea could turn this into a profit center.

    Or maybe the person being photographed with Zig's truck explained to the picture-taker that this truck was from an era when guys were so tough, they didn't even need sleep- hence the "no bed".

    It <IS> a GMC, after all~ It's so manly, it doesn't even need a bed on it to look picture worthy.#biggrin#

    Good danged idea, Evan!!!
    If it works, I'll let you sleep in it the next time you're up this way! (It's an 8' bed, so you'll fit nicely.) #wink#
