1963 Chevrolet C10; 1966 Ford F100. And antelope.

from Alex Emond, in southern Saskatchewan: 
Mel's Nice Cars (1-306 741-9554) in Swift Current always has a truck or three parked around his place. The '63 Ford truck has nice, clean lines. The GMC truck , he tells me , actually sits on a late '90's Chevy Silverado chassis, power plant , wheels and so on. It's an automatic , but it has a big ape-hanger stick shift in it - art for art's sake.
"Note, in the background, the Corvette "monster-mobile". Once again .... art for art's sake . I'll take some better shots of it some day soon. I was too scared, at first glance , to point my camera directly at it . Cheers, Alex 
P.S. Antelope
