I love old trucks. One day I'd love to have a real, souped-up old delivery truck with a new engine in it so I could drive it whenever, wherever.
Somehow I ended up on a milk-truck hunt the other day on the internet. Not shopping, just learning new things and taking a break. It looks like a company called Divco made all of the cool old milk trucks and most other multi-stop vehicles for a good, long time. They produced teensy tiny delivery trucks for their dealers too. I'm curious if they had working engines. Here's one -- and another -- adorable.
Too bad neither Pimp My Ride nor Overhaulin' was around yet when I lived in Hollywood. Then my delivery-truck fantasy could have included some ridiculous theme that suited my personality or hobbies of choice. They do some crazy stuff on those shows.
True, I'm not sure what I'd want to put in the back of my dream delivery truck -- or what might be my obvious theme. In the absence of the perfect idea, I'm sure a couple of added seats might satisfy well enough -- that is, if my kids would allow me to drive them around in such a silly vehicle. Ooo, what if it was a mobile studio with seatbelts? With craft storage built in? And what should it look like? I don't know. Maybe I'd just want the back to be empty.
I'm clearly just daydreaming here. I'm still working out the details.
