It sure looks like a 1942 Ford to me.

Oh, and it's a dump truck.

You may want to see if it runs. Then see if it dumps. Then you can use it to salt/sand your drive all winter.

Rockies regional randomness

It has to have enough power to have climbed the steep-arse drive... Unless they airlifted it in and built the building around it -lol

Did about 350 miles today. Saw a ton of you FF's today on my ride, but every single time you guys were parked outside a coffee shop. PFFTTT, slackers!

Hah! I hadn't noticed the highway signs at 6 seconds in.

Amazing how fast things come up on you at a 70mph speed differential.

That is quite possibly the worst section of highway to speeding down. People blindly merge from the on-ramp across to the boulder transition. I've been cut off way too many times coming through there.

What bike is this and what might one sitting in the weeds be worth? I have no idea what condition it's in. Hard to find parts for?
