Found it on Classic Trucks Magazine facebook page. Mostly low riders there. But I couldn't resist this one. Except them whitewalls. First time I went to Texas, from Alberta, it was a long slow drive in a 1952 Chevrolet 3/4 ton grainer. Best truck. Ever. I think the photo is Deer Lodge, Montana.

from Don Culbertson, in Marfa Texas:
"Roy, known as Popo to the kids in town, has been tuning up cars and trucks for 5 decades. Originally from Ft Davis, he set up shop here in Marfa. Roy drives a 1975 F-250. He keeps my 1978 F250 on the road. Roy reluctantly rebuilt my allis chalmers 50/50 tractor. It's not a Ford, but he fixed it. Here's a sample of what's parked on his lot. Roy's is the place to pump up the tires, have a cold beer and bask in the presence of the old timers...
"The black truck is for sale."--DGC
