« Part 243: Ford pickup 1951 Part 244 of Toy Construction series Part 245: Ford pickup 1955 Made some wheels »

I haven’t been in the shop for around two weeks as a monster of all ear infection had got the better of me, but did work the last two days so heading for the finish with this project.

I finely found a place for my last signature plate.

Trying to figure out a way to use up some of my left over tires but may just have to make a set, we’ll see.
I do like the look of a set a Dually on the back how about you?

#4 over and out!

Love the duel tyres on the back Bruce.
The truck is looking superb, the lines are excellent.
Well done sir.

Btw, what’s up with the #4 thing. Did I miss something.

ARRRR…. The name of the Bruce…

John Cleese was the one who made Bruce famous in Australia….

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuidQTppOMk

My brother is a Bruce, top bloke and in the day when John Cleese came out with this Bruce jokes, my bother who was built like a brick dunny, got the nick name of Charlie after his love for Charlie Brown comics….

ear! ere! (just trying to out do crowies response)

Jason I think its got something to do with the number of Bruce’s on the forum.
I vaguely remember asking the same question some time ago, possibly connected with LBD.

Opps I just saw the previous reply

Otherwise thats a very impressive job.

The other wheels put a Firestone badge on the side of the door and mount them in the back as a delivery truck.
