GM Advanced Design
Okay, I think the GM "Advanced Design Series" of trucks, which ran from 1947-55, are about as beautiful as a truck gets. BB caught this one in Santa Barbara. I learned to drive (Ste-Marguerite Station, Quebec; summer of '67) on a 1953 A-D Chevrolet truck with Montana plates and a suicide knob.
