Another Fathers Day is upon us and my brother brought back a memory of Dad through a status comment he left on Facebook yesterday. He has retired from years of driving truck and has a brand new Ford pickup and a trailer that he bought a few years back and he is off Monday to enjoy some downtime at Alta Lake located in central Washington just north of Chelan.
I don't rightly remember how old I was but it was after I had gotten my drivers permit and Dad who was a truck driver was trying to teach me how to drive. We had a 1955 Chevy three speed on the column with a 235 cu in motor. It was baby blue with very little trim. In fact, Chevrolet made the 150 as a fleet vehicle. Here is a picture of one of these vehicles. Unfortunately I could not find one with the stock wheels as ours had but the color is right.
