Re: 1951 Metro- The Restoration Begins

So my first car show since 2020BC was a Vintage Trailer/ Car & Truck Show. I couple of days later I was approached by the folks at Vintage Camper Trailer Magazine saying they wanted to run an article about my truck? I said "You realize that it's not a camper?" They said "Cool is Cool, no matter what it is."... Enjoy

Re: 1951 Metro- The Restoration Begins

When I decided to build this truck as a period correct walk-in display van to pay homage to the company I've worked for over half my life, I didn't realize at the time that what we were building was more of a rolling museum. How fitting that my rolling museum is now going to be on display in an actual museum. From November 6, 2021 to February 5, 2022, "Snappy" will be on display at the Zimmerman Automobile Driving Museum 610 Lairport Street, El Segundo, California 90245. If you have always wanted to see it but never had the opportunity to experience it at one of the shows it's been in, now is your chance.
