Moonie here

Hey all, I'm Rob but you can just call me Hazz. I just bought 2 66 C-10's. Agreed to the deal for the step side, 2000.00. A few days later my wife was talking to the sellers wife and she said if we would get it off her property we can have both for 2500.00! The step side I'm keeping and not sure about the fleetside. Might just flip it for parts money. Anyway, I love the 60's and early 70's gm trucks. Heard the 60's called the "ugly duckling", I think they are cool.. I'm a 43 yr old disabled trucker, veteran, husband of 24 years and father of two. One still lives at home, he is autistic and cannot take care of himself. Lots of hobbies but my favorite is travel on my 2013 HD Ultra Limited. Happy to answer any questions you may have. Thank you for the add.

Welcome Hazz too our lil Family, great find on the trucks. Whats your home town, I also have a HD (02 FXD) maybe if your close enough we could find a Hwy to beat up on LOL. Don't be shy you can ask away and we will help you out in any way we can. I don't know where you get the term "Ugly Duckling" I my self like them and have had a 66 short fleet around 30 yrs ago. I now have a 68 C10 but just might be interested in the other one. What is it specs please?

Love to see/read another story about long Marriages. I got you beat we are going on 41 this Dec 22nd and still going strong well some times we stumble from time to time but some times Life has its moments you just have to get around them. Let your Wife have her own time so you get your time in the "HD" saddle LOL. Take care and happy hunting on what ever you need for the 65.

Re: Moonie here

Welcome, Hazz! Keep us updated on your trucks!
The "ugly duckling" was because of the early 60's hood.....most guys switched them to the later 65-66 hoods.
Marvin has me beat, marriage-wise........Bonnie and I celebrated 33 years last Tuesday. Second marriage for both of us, and we all know second marriages don't last........

Re: Moonie here

So Cal, really? My Brother lives in Lawndale, he asked us when we were going to take a trip and visit him. Dont know when that could happen, but I will be sure to keep ya updated. IF I do get out there it will be on the Limited so we can travel wherever and whenever we choose. No time table that we have to follow for return flights.
Thanks Bagged, glad I found this forum!
Az Geezer, I will be sure to keep y'all updated. I lived in Arizona for about 5 years before enlisting. I do miss it.
