Nice work! Lots of eye candy going on here, first it's a K100 built off a W900, the big 6 yellow engine, the curtains, exhaust stacks. Looks good. BTW, would you happen to know what year your dad's picture was taken? It's interesting to notice some details on his truck such as the front bumper, the door handles, the grab handles.
