The Pipes are Calling (from Saskatchewan):1946 Dodge Truck
From Alex Emond in Mossback, Saskatchewan, on the Canadian Prairies: 'I sent pictures of this truck a couple of years ago. It's a little further along now. Maybe it just needs a front bumper , or maybe it don't need no stinking bumpers.
"Oh Danny Boy , the "pipes " , the "pipes " are callin'". You can hear this thing coming. I like it. Gets about 2 miles to the gallon, frightens small children and even the cops leave this guy alone. All it's missing is a Gatlin Gun and some "angry woodpecker" mudflaps. I'd have to give it a 7.3 for style and an 8 for patina. Your thoughts? Cheers--"AE
