My Thoughts on a Clean Truck

If you go through my posts it’s easy to see that over the years my journey has included many trucks. Having been in the construction business it was necessary. I have over the years spent many a day washing and waxing my truck. I can remember the first new truck in 1982. It was a very stripped down F150 Ford. It was a stick shift, on the floor, and it was a three speed. The engine was a straight six cylinder. The truck was red and it had a red interior with a vinyl bench seat. It had a radio. I can’t remember if it was just AM, or if it was AM/FM. There wasn’t any cruise control or power anything. The windows were crank up, and the floor was a heavy plastic. I used to hose out the floor and there were drainage holes in the corners for the purpose. To protect the truck bed I had a sheet of 3/4″ exterior plywood that stayed in the bed of the truck.

It isn’t work when you enjoy the effort!

I kept that truck clean and enjoyed the work cleaning and waxing it. I still keep my truck clean. It’s a bit harder for me now though. I need a nap afterwards.
