Bahama Blue

May 10, 2017

This is Dave, an English Okie by way of Morocco sitting in his ’67 International pickup which I coveted. He was working next door when I inquired about the year of his pickup.

“Guess,” he said.

“Uhmmmm. ’67?”

“Right! You are the first person to guess on the first try.” Yes!

After admiring the what I think is the “Bahama Blue Metallic” paint (I looked it up later), and swapping stories about my much-missed ’71 Camper Special pickup (Turquoise Metallic), he told me the classic story of finding it in an old guy’s barn sitting under a tarp for 37 years. It is completely original, mechanical fuel pump and all, and runs like a kitten. He only had to replace fuel lines, battery and re-coat the gas tank and away down the road he went. I can’t tell you the price the old man asked, because it will make me cry. Dave paid more so he didn’t feel guilty…

Anyway, here’s a few shots of Dave, and one of that beautiful pickup.
