My vote is for the 56 truck they are always sharp looking. they have BIG engine compartments lots of room for a BBF to go in 8)

No way..

No way. Those trucks at the Bash couldn't hook at all. Just look at the video. :shock: :lol: :lol:

Where's my beer and that half inch wrench?

Cletus66 is right BUT..... If you want a cool ride that is a blast from a roll, I choose the '56. Body style beats most early trucks. And they lend well to a tilt front end!

+1 for truck.

Cletus is joking, everyone of the trucks where pulling the front tires! LOL

I vote truck, then again I am a little bias.
