I got a call from a friend while I was in Hawaii telling me about a Model AA one ton Truck a mutual friend had for sale. I called the friend last week & he told me he had a very cute Model Aa truck that would be perfect for our fuel delivery truck, since we already have the fuel tank for it. He said it's missing a radiator, shell, hood and engine. He forgot to tell me it was missing the doors, windshield, headlights, had the wrong top, missing four wheels & tires, and a few other "small" items. He said it was "real cute & a nice little truck" but needed to know if I wanted it. He's in his 80s & didn't know how to text a pix so no pix. I really wanted an Aa delivery truck so I just bought it, sight unseen! Hello! This is what I bought! Unfortunately I
Pre paid waaaay too much for this pile of rust and drove a long ways to go and get it so will just have to hope I can find some decent deals on the parts to make it look like the delivery truck I had hoped it already was.
Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose! This one was not one of the better deals! Fortunately for us, we met with a collector friend on the long, sad trip home and found some great signs that she had just decided to sell! The day turned out sweet even with the original disappointment! Keep on hunting as you may jut find something really cool and sell it to us. Yes you can come to aaaLakeside storage and have a good laugh at us for this one!
