    Hi my name is Phil and I live in France. I have traveled twice on the west end of the Route 66 from Flagstaff to Los Angeles. Last time was in 2015 and I had the chance to spend a day at the Pomona Swap Meet. At the beginning I was looking for VW Beetle and Bus because I like the sound of the Flat4 but finally I discovered that another great sound exists it is that of the V8. During the swap meet I saw many trucks with great patina at low price compare to an old VW and I said to myself that it would be cool to cruise in Normandy behind the steering wheel of an old truck.
    I bought my first truck in 2016 for the 80th birthday party of my father. It is a Dodge D100 1958 with a V8 315ci, 4 manual speed, a long bed utiline and a great patina.It comes from Carson City, Nevada. This one is for my father because he loves the Route 66 but he don't want to take the plane so I said to him if you don't go to the Route 66, the Route 66 will come to you :)
    This truck is very cool and I like to drive it but not as a daily driver. So I bought a second truck for me in 2017, it is a Dodge D100 Custom 1976 with a V8 360ci, 3 manual speed and a long bed utiline. It comes from Ellensburg, Washington. The front axle, the gear ratio, the power brakes and the power steering make the big difference between the 58.
    I have a lot things to fix on the 76 so I will be happy to read the forum and discuss with trucks addicts :)
