F-250 Road Trip

Autoliterate has been hearing from photographer Jarrod McCabe, on the road this week from Bozeman, Montana to Massachusetts with a new/old truck, just bought in Bozeman.
            Clementine is a 1971 Ford F250 Custom. She started the trip with 90k original miles; it's her first-ever venture out of Montana. Jarrod was in Wyoming yesterday and reports everything running fine, except for a problem with the main tank; likely a fuel line or filter clogged. The auxiliary tank is working fine.
