All of the old trucks I have owned with original paint have their paint worn off of the top of the door where the driver's arm hangs out. I still drive like that as most of my junkers don't have turn signals, and rolling the window up and down just ain't gonna happen. Great photo (as always)

And proud he should be! That represents a lot of hard work. And historically it represents a lot of sacrifice by an earlier generation that drove these beasts right smack into harm's way. We are talking some serious gun barrels with this MH in his sights....
