1949 Chevrolet truck. New Mexico snow.

this from David Branch:
"I was up in New Mexico for Thanksgiving and this was hauled out of the garage for my benefit. Runs like a top. The owner has been painting the interior with red rustoleum and trying his damnedest to get the windlace run correctly in its channel. He said it was "an ugly, dusty green" before he wiped her down with 30wt. Wants to buff it out and "fix the dents". I might have preferred the barn-fresh patina but I admire his old-man-with-an-oilcan approach."
