Wait, you moved from OK in a jalopy with all your possessions and family? Can you say Grapes of Wrath?

 

It took me a long time to come around to the small block Chevy, but once I understood the significance and history, I was sold. I have 3 or 4 kicking around the shop right now along with 3 of my own Chevy truck projects (don't tell anyone).

Yeah !! 'Grapes of Wrath' or 'Beverly Hillbillies'.

 

Old black GMC with a canvas camper. Probably a canvas waterbag on the front bumper if I remember correctly. 

 

Headed to Hayward CA sixty-odd years ago.

 

Just call me Tom Joad ('Grapes of Wrath'). 

 

Damn Okies.


Better to have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy !!

I'm guessing your granny did not die while coming across the desert from AZ.

 

Did you see that car sell at auction a few years ago. It was completely different from when it was in the movie though.
