My Daddy's arrived in my garage last month. He has had it for about 25 years. Pop is 86 and does not drive much anymore. They have a HHR to put around town in so the 1962 Rampy is here to stay!

This arrived at my shop about two weeks ago. Sadly it will be leaving when I'm done with the paint.

I'm picking up another one on Saturday.grinning smiley One is good, two is better???

This one is a '62 - taken apart for restoration, body work done & brakes 100% new, but otherwise needs everything. Pieces removed are included with the truck, so that's a plus. Oh boy, another project!

All this wouldent have anything to do with Jay Leno's restoring a Rampy, would it? I'd rather think it's just a "cool factor"!
Regardless.... it's a good trend!

I picked up a typical east coast rusty 61 in November. Custom interior.

The plan is to get it on the road. Or all over the road, I forget which.

I would include a picture, but I wouldn't want to upset the west coasters!smileys with beer

Had mine a year and a half. Even in New Mexico it's got a fair bit of rust - but not bad. Daily driver though and never let me down.

Motohead and I also have been eyeballing one on 50th Street East & Avenue H for a while.

Last time I stopped I think I heard a shotgun shell being jacked into the chamber.

Next time I'm taking Dave and making him knock on the front door. eye popping smiley
