1954 Advanced Design Chevrolet 3100. La Mesa New Mexico

This beauty came from David Branch who found it in New Mexico: 
"I've noticed this truck every time I pass through La Mesa. Chope's Roadhouse is there too. A fantastic old bar that serves 40oz bottles at the counter.  Restaurant associated with it is good but it's reputation has led to an annex with little of the charm of the adobe bar. The river road from Las Cruces, NM to oh, say Fabens, Tex. is a whole other experience from I-10. Takes you through pecan groves and alfalfa fields. Some cotton and along a dried-up Rio Grande. Well worth making the side-trip. You loose a whole fistful of decades down here."-DB
