Around here we love old things. We love to use classic trucks, tractors, and tools on our farm. We use a Ford 9N tractor to plow and cultivate, we have a white ’66 Ford pickup that we drove to market last year, and we have an old Planet Jr. hand cultivator that we use for weeding between the rows. So last fall when the opportunity to buy Andrew’s grandfathers truck from his aunt came up, we jumped on it. Around here we love old things, especially if there is family history attached. It is a teal ’72 GMC pickup. Grandpa’s brother bought it new in ’72 and when he died it was passed along to Grandpa.We bought it last November when we went to the coast for the Washington Tilth Producers conference. We are using it as our new market truck this year. Someday we hope to fix it up and make it look all shiny and pretty. As a side note; I love the color so much that I was inspired to redo our all our banners and signs incorporating it!
