Year and make of my favorite pickup truck.
1940 Ford 1/2 ton pick up.
How old were you when you first owned the truck?
How long did you own the truck?
Was it your first truck?
Some of the truck's features:
Chopped top. Flat head 239 CID engine with finned Edelbrock heads, dual Stromberg 97 carburetors.
Here's what made the truck special.

1961 Entered it in mine and Montreal's 1st. Bob Laravee's ISCA, Salon D'auto Sport car show in the unfinished class.
I also drag raced it at Deseronto, Ontario drag strip.
Man, this truck was my pride and joy.
