About my Silverado

My  pickup was the “gift” of a lifetime.   My granddad bought the truck new in October, 1987 and drove it for pleasure until March, 1996 when he sold it to his brother (my great uncle).  My uncle was a VoAg Teacher and he used it for school work and light farm work until February, 2006 when he gave it to his two sons and bought a new Chevy truck.  He died 6 months later at age 57 with pancreatic cancer and the sons gave the truck back to their mother to use on the farm.  At our family Christmas in 2007, my aunt told me that she was going to give me the truck when she was finished using it, as my uncle would want me to have it.  I had no idea when that would be, but my granddad delivered it to me a week after my 15th birthday in May, 2008.  It is my pride and joy to own even though I can only drive with a permit and a licensed driver until May, 2009 when I will be 16.  I plan on driving it to school and for fun and hope it have it for many years to come.

Scott, I want you to know how pleased I am that you have the pickup that I started with, then to Uncle Lonnie and now to you.  I am very proud of the young man you are and Uncle Lonnie would be very proud of you to. Enjoy this truck for however long you have it. Papa

Gifts are all ways the best. I was given my grandmother's 76 AMC Grimlin when she pasted a way. That car rocks in so many ways
