    December 7th, 1941

    Its up to the parents to educate. My kids are grown and appreciated their Dads love of history. They know things about history that their Grandparents don't. My son is an English teacher...he spells words better than me. In my opinion, history is like math and the auto manuals we hold so dear. Its there to read, reread and remind us of the details, so we can have brain space to remember where the heck we left our keys. 48D
  15. While I'm searching through my piles of spare parts looking for interesting things....here's some related videos. E-brake video #1 E-brake video #2 E-brake video #3 48D

Wife: You've been saying that forever....send it off or we're 100 percent done! This man has my sympathy. 48D
  18. I don't know about the driver.....but a guy came to the BBQ a few years back (1946 W series 1/2 ton) and had a passenger that was 6'6.....they won the long distance traveler award, 1200 miles. One way. 48D

    True to its nickname.....Doggie Dish.

    The real story for my wife and kids, is they know I miss my favorite buddy Red. Lost him back in 2012....some of you might remember him from a BBQ or two.... He was definitely this man's best friend. It was nice to be reminded of him.

  24. 12TH ANNUAL CLEMENTS TAILGATE BBQ APRIL 6TH 2019 SATURDAY 9AM TIL WHENEVER EARLY TOW-IN BEGINS NOW AND LATE TOW-OUT ENDED YESTERDAY Show up Thursday or Friday and Camp-Out til Sunday or Monday, always need the Help Its FOR REAL!!! The 12th year in a row that Old Dodge Trucks have come to a meet with their Ol' Dodge Owners!!! Unbelievable, #12 !!!!!....the place where the largest number of Dodge Pilot-House Era Trucks meet in the whole WORLD !! !( I think..lol ). The people I've met over the last 11 BBQ's has made my life so much better. This time of year is so awesome because finishing an old truck actually has meaning to the crowd you'll see here! Fenders and bumpers to hang on, hoods to lift, parts to swap, and stories to tell! I look forward to it all. Every year is special with returning long distant travelers and new ones that are finally able to make the trip! I always look forward to meeting you all! I've have been busy as always but never forget to make time for my friends. My son has moved to the Bay Area, my daughter has moved to Arizona and my oldest daughter has bought a new, bigger house, as her family continues to grow. Its been quite a year for the old man..lol. But with my changing life I could use the extra hands. Its a big deal every year!! The guys are coming from the north, the south, the east and the west. You know you'll meet someone you know from the forum, and it'll be the coolest thing ever...its true...I have good friends in far away states and countries because this here BBQ. Come on down and join in the "hard-work" and have a burger for your troubles! "The car crowd is growing and more than welcome to come. I could easily call it "The Tailgate/Trunk BBQ"!" "I can't tell you how much I look forward to this every year, its a blast and for some, lasts a few days. Campers show up on Thursday or Friday and leave on a Sunday morning.....all enjoying late night chat sessions around the fire pit." "I hope new and old members alike are inspired to make the trip and maybe even drive their trucks the distance....you know we have your back! " "So many good stories around the fire pit the nights before and after the event. I can't tell how cool it is to have forum members stay several days and just relax....." "Looking forward to a great party! Now build it, and bring it!!!" "It was around 2007 when Bob Koch, Jim Shepard, and myself (Tim Estrada), went to Reg Evans' place to check out his "yard". While we were eating hotdogs, drinking cold beverages, solving international and regional issues....we thought "lets have a BBQ". "Get the wheels on, and the tanks full....its time to finish up and git to the Q! It ain't no beauty pageant of trailer queens, its a truck show...so flex your rust as well as your shine!" Tim aka 48Dodger Flyer to follow after we vote on a picture...........
