1953 chevrolet 6100; 1955 International R-130

From Alex Emond: "Here is an ultrapatinated workhorse that is in the tiny community of Walsh, Alberta . Walsh is on the Trans Canada Hwy just a few minutes from the Welcome to Saskatchewan signs . I talked to the guy who owns it who told me that it still runs ... his father bought it new . It might be a '54.. he wasn't sure , but close enough . You could never replicate that paint ! Cheers, AE
p.s. the mid-50's snowplow still is on the payroll too ... orange you glad?"
