Ivan is one of my best friends, him and Moongoddess, his beautiful wife Diane, I posted his ceramic work, he is great artist, taught about 20 years at college, and many shows. Well at Glen Ellen fire station sealed auction, we bid $400. for fire truck and $233. for Ford 1956 panel truck and we got both!! I never took photo of panel truck. We drove fire truck, we could park illegally! (who gives a ticket to a fire truck) We never got it licensed. One time coming back from Santa Rosa, two young Europeans with backpacks were hitchhiking! We stopped and Ivan said "stand on the back, like firemen"! So the boy and girl climbed on laughing. It had a crank out windshield. We sold it for $900. when we bought 20 acres in Mendocino County with old 10 X 50 foot trailer. Later we built a house! We paid $20,500 for the place. Payments were $150. a month or $75.00 each. We took the panel truck with us and the lumber mill gave us free wood from employees pile, We hauled it in the Panel Those were good days!! Thanks for looking!!!
