a new set of wheels

Yesterday was a big day. We made the biggest move forward to making this thing happen; we purchased a truck.

And she's a beaut.

Our 1942 Dodge WFA-32 truck has been in storage the last 50 years in California. It was purchased new in Fresno, California by the current owners dad in 1942. It retains the original 95 h.p. 6 cylinder engine, 5 speed transmission, 2 speed rear end & vacuum booster brakes.

What's next? Our new friend gets shipped from California to South Carolina where the custom fabrication happens. This is also where it will be fitted with the Valoriani oven, refrigeration, generators, and the rest of the goodies that will make this truck so unique. 

And speaking of South Carolina, I'll be headed there in a few days to chat with the fabricators, make plans and hone in on what exactly I want for the truck. A lot is happening in these weeks and soon we'll be doing nothing but twiddling our thumbs, waiting for it to arrive, ready to fire up and enjoy!
