In the nights of the drive in movies, those were great. You could put a cooler, BBQ, & a couple lawn chairs in the back.

Ah....the good old drive-in. We used to toss a couple sleeping bags and pillows in the back. More fun than lawn chairs! :lol:

Good work! I checked out the photos on your site. That's good stuff. I have an old '55 Chevy pickup myself.

Nice photo. I'd bet that truck has done a lot of work over it's lifetime.

According to the sign on the door, the truck once belonged to the Ballantine Brewing Company of Newark, NJ. I suspect it has been around the block a time or two.

Excellent photograph of a lovely old (1940's) Chevy medium duty truck. Great patina.

theres a group of guys who watch rallys in a similar size (but much more modern) truck, they have a couch in the back, and a sunshade set up over the couch

Some ideas are so great that they never go out of style!

Thanks for the comments. Using a truck for a viewing platform is a grand idea, regardless of the venue. Always nice to be able to have all the comforts with you.

Gorgeous truck. All the straight six power. I remember it well. The starter switch on the floor was what I liked best.
