This past Saturday was the Carolina Rad meetup at the fantastic NC Museum of Transportation, a 117-year old locomotive depot now filled with old cars and a partially disassembled DC-3, among other things. I took the 1989 Ford F-150, named The Marshal by its previous owners (and I now realize I added an extra “L” at the end before, like that chain of cheap clothes places) to the show, where I drew car pictures for people as my kid ran around looking for the cat that lives in the museum. Oh, and thanks to the magic of default, my truck got an award!
Yes, because it was the lone Unmodified 1980s Domestic Pickup Truck to actually show up, Marshal won by default, but I’ll take it.
So now this ratty, purple-hand-painted pickup truck with its muffler rattling around in its bed is now an AWARD WINNING ratty, purple-hand-painted pickup truck with its muffler rattling around in its bed.
