There are car classifieds that you just have to pass on when you stumble upon them. Perhaps your budget has already been dwindled by a recent wheel purchase, your garage can’t store another car, or your sense of better judgment finally speaks up. We’ve all been there.

The “Pickup Truck” is as American as baseball and the cheese burger. It is as American as our flag itself. KC’s personal example shows what truly came of the American Pickup once it reached its prime. From the subtleties to the obvious, his 1934 Dodge 1-Ton Pickup is definitively true to its origins.

My favorite question of all, however, is about the owner.
