Signs of Saturday: Morning Glory Coal *

great old truck in Malibu

Not sure what I like best about this truck -- the two-tone paint or the bullet hole in the windshield. All I can say for sure is that it's running on five (maybe even four) cylinders, a reverse carbon offset to that cute blue Prius next door.


morning glory coal

* From this YouTube video (thanks, Lynda!) we learn the following:

"This is a true Rat ( HOT ) Rod. Originally a coal mining truck from Walsenburg, Colorado. Powered by a trick three-deuce V8, this truck has character a ' plenty!"

AND:

"...it was found in a Texas pasture. The tree growing out of the grille was left´╗┐ in it."

Wayyyy better than anything I could have come up with.
