Earlier in the year I was talking to a few friends...artists, builders, about the current old truck trends. Slammed C10s are rad, but everyone has done them. Dropped effies are common as a cold around any hot rod show. They’re everywhere. When I had my ‘54 F100 at AutoRama last year people did not know what to think of it at first: a stock-ish truck, stock height, with knobby tires. A simple work truck, but in the end everyone loved it.

A couple weeks ago I took the Ram R/T and headed south. No repeat of my 8,400 mile lap, but a 3k trip to see some friends and check out some hot rods. On the way back I made some stops too, Maybe I’ll post some of that at a later time...

Down in Texas there were definitely more than a few trucks reppin’ the low and go crowd, but in the mix were some pretty cool “farm” trucks.
