46 ford fire truck!


Since the late forties, my family has been in the junk business. The atuo salvage trade has put food on our tables for generations! Growing up near the family business has given me a great appreciation for rusty gold. A very early memory has me walking with my Great Granddad  through the back 40 collecting bits of copper wire in a five gallon pail. Sometimes we would talk on our walks, but of the time he didn't say much...

I am working on lots of pumpkin dolls, but in the breaks of time when I am not, I am working on a sign to hang on the outside wall of the salvage yard office.  It's a partial hood from a forty-six ford fire truck.  Soon it will read "Cash Only"  new life for an old gem!
