    This is a great pic! But a note to the caption writer :offtopic: those are Microwave dishes, not Satellite dishes. The van was parked on that site probably to hop a signal over the hills surrounding LA; hence the dishes pointing in opposite directions.

    Keep the pics coming ... I've got to keep tabs on the resto'd Metros out there for when I win the lottery! (Any day now, for sure.)

    Doesn't appear to be too many "photos" on the thread? Links don't work & I don't do facebook! Guess I'll have to learn how to post photos, EH.

    Hello everyone,here is my `48 KB3 I picked up a couple weeks back. I scored free storage from a friend,all I had to do was let him letter the side of it so he can use it as a billboard for his company.

    I guess I'm a little late getting in on this thread. Here is my 1965 Metro. Yeah, she's a little rough. Was not running when I bought it for a storage unit in 2006. Engine appears to be "stuck". But I'm kinda partial to this old truck just the same. I tell people it saved my life. Before I got it unloaded I had a bad fall and ended up in the hospital. When the took pictures they found a large tumor on one of my kidney's. If not for that "accident" I'd be a dead man today.

    I haven't seen this one posted anywhere on BP, and I personally think it is cool.

    They may not be wheel covers, but actual polished truck wheels. The slammer crowd takes 24.5 inch truck wheels, shave 1/2" off the diameter, and slap on some 24" rubber bands. Adapters are used to mount the 10-bolt truck wheels.

    I appreciate the engineering that goes into some of these rides. NEAT!
    Later, Mike

    Initially, I had considered axle swaps for my 1953 RM120 but upon starting the brake job, everything is in such great original condition that I can't bring myself to do it. I'd be interested to know if anyone has any advice to employ more modern and available bolt pattern. I don't mind the drum brakes. I wondered if there was an off the shelf drum and hub that would fit the backing plates.
    Thanks,
    Dustin
