1947 International Harvester in Richard Ford's Canada

From Alex Emond, in southern Saskatchewan. Where Dell goes, in Richard Ford's wonderful novel Canada. "This truck was parked outside a tire shop in Assiniboia, Saskatchewan . The body , paint and interior is absolutely flawless . It is quite astounding really ... don't know if it has a newer , big motor . The wheels indicate that it has better brakes than it was born with . Quite a gorgeous truck ... if you like 'awesome'.  This red Advanced Design Chevy ain't too ugly either . It was just posing in a yard in Central Butte , begging me to take its picture . There is something in the water , that makes these prairie folks pamper their old iron."-AE
