    A long time ago my father had a '49 Dodge B1-B pickup on the farm. I learned to drive (before I was legal to) in that truck. It always seemed extra cool to me, maybe just because it was all I knew at the time. I don't know what he ever did with it, probably traded it off on the POS '65 Chevy that he had later on (he doesn't remember either). Anyway fast forward to September of this year when I happened upon an estate sale that listed a '53 Dodge pickup for sale. I decided to go investigate this truck as I knew it was nearly the same as Dad's old truck that I had liked so well 50 some years earlier. Unfortunately, I couldn't resist and it came home with me regardless of the fact that I already have THREE other running, working trucks on the farm! It's a '53 B4-C 116 flatbed. I think I have a Dodge problem.

          Well, I don't know, but 8 of them just seems a little excessive?? Maybe not. Maybe I'm OK?

              You're okay - I have only 7 (trucks), but there's another 6 Dodges along with a couple others - even one Chevy and a Fjord.

                Definitely a cool truck, congrats on a nice score. Having to many is only a problem when you start neglecting them where they slowly rott away, enjoy.

                  Nothing slowly rotting here but me maybe. All my Dodges are stored indoors and driven pretty regularly except the trailer queen Super Bee, and I intend to start driving it a lot more next year. No more babying it for shows anymore. Hope to be able to care for them properly for a lot of years yet. Had the '53 out a couple days ago and boy does that old flat head six run nice! Really glad I bought it.

                      Nice truck! Eight is great! Pic of the Bee, and the rest of the fleet. They love getting miles put on, that's what they were made for.
