Old Family rigs

I rescued a tattered old photo album from my childhood home not to long ago, and scanned a few of the photos. My great uncle owned a couple of businesses in the late '70's and early '80's- a general store and a stove/heating store, and operated a couple of trucks for each. Most of these photos are from 1979-1980.

Ford trucks and ford cars,sounds like my great uncle.Im sure if he was a trucker he would of had ford rigs.

He had ford trucks,tractors,plows,lawnmowers,snow-blowers.I can remember only one non ford on the farm,a 70ish gmc.That had a ford carb on it to "make it run right".

I have alot of blue blood also,but can live with a few models of other brands.Not ol'uncle Joe

Yeah- the only non-Ford truck Frank had was the yellow GMC in the first post. The GMC letters off the front of the cab are still up on a pegboard panel somewhere.

Did bring back alot of great memories in these crummy times thx man.
