from Alex Emond in southern Saskatchewan:
"In my two month hiatus out in Ponteix, Sask., this spring, I just kept running into old trucks . The country is crawling with them. So don't be alarmed if I have to keep sending you pictures . I was driving around more this trip , with the luxury of time. There's a whole lotta nothing worth seeing. Most people are skeptics, but I find some little pockets that are stunning and I like the spare, half-empty vibe of so many of the towns .
Up in a little semi-former village of Gouldtown is a house with a row of shiny fixed up trucks, ranging from the late 40's to the late 50's . Mostly one-ton trucks with power take off dump truck beds in them. I met the guy, a retired mechanic who moved out from Nova Scotia to find a dry climate. He fixes these old trucks up and sells them... prices ranging from $2500 to &3500. Cheap like Borscht . He can't resist painting them . Gouldtown is north of the Trans Canada Hwy. just south of Lake Diefenbaker."AE
ps the green machine was already spoken for , sold at $ 3500
