Vintage Valley Trucks
I've been driving past this gem of a truck for a long time. I'm not up on military trucks but I'd guess it's a 2-1/2 tonner, a deuce and a half as they say. Nameplate says GMC. The for sale sign is so faded I can't read what it says ... at least without crawling through the fence. I wish I had a need for it. Pretty cool. It's sitting a few miles south of the 285/17 junction if anyone wants to check it out. As always, click on the images to enlarge.

This next one is less of a gem. An old International Harvester sitting next to Mac's diner (good food, btw) in Crestone. It's seen much better days. The door is roped closed. Front windshield busted. Priced at $700 or best offer. I think it'll be sitting there for awhile.
