All In The Family Datsun

On September 1, 1970 I bought a brand new 1970 Datsun 510. It was the first brand new car I bought in my life. I was in the US Army at the time, and sure enough about 6-months later I got shipped overseas. I flew away, and after a little while my wife sold the…

GMC Pickup Loyalty

I’ve always owned GMC trucks from the first new vehicle I bought when I graduated college in 1981. About 19 years ago my son found me a 1961 GMC 1000 in St. Louis MO. I was born in 1961 and I’ve always liked the forward learning A pillars and the stance of the short bed…
