Sorry can't help, may get down to the 60s tonight.

I'm also in Flaw-duh but my sister lives in the frozen north - I delight in teasing her about it.  OTOH, there's the hurricanes...

Never had a pickup but that's a pickup I'd have.

 

Mine isn't as cool as the Jeep and it runs empty 99+% of the time, but it sure is handy when I do have something to haul.

If you drive a Stanley Steamer, do you have to put anti freeze in it ? It 


 

Not if you leave it running.

Dad always wanted a Model A pickup to drive to work, and in 1970 he traded for a basket-case 1928 model. We spent 14 months restoring it, and then he drove it every day, year-round for a couple years, regardless of weather. (We didn't have a garage anyway 😊). I was always surprised how it climbed snowy hills better than "modern" cars back then! (I'm the  bareheaded teenager in 2 of these photos. My little brother, 10 years younger, in red hat. I still have dad's black-bear skin coat!)

This is from my Dad's slide collection that I scanned most of last Winter. He had a TV sales and service business in the 50s and 60s. This was just his everyday truck when the photo was taken on 4/12/1957 in NE Ohio when he was out on a service call and stopped to take a picture. He always had a camera with him. A lot of snow for so late in the season. Not sure exactly what year sedan delivery it is maybe 1948 Chevy?

1948 Chevy is correct.
