Florida Autofest

As we travel, it is nice to comment about where we are going and/or where we have been and all the IHC trucks that we have seen on our journeys.

Florida Autofest

Participated in the car show at the Florida Autofest - Lakeland - by Carlisle Events. Received two awards: Veterans Pick and Co-owners Choice.
Not only is it a car show, but auction, car corral, swap meet, etc. A whole plethora of car oriented activities. One of the vehicles presented by a company with Collector Cars for sale is the ‘41 K panel truck shown below.
Knowing how much I spent building my truck, that’s not a bad price, but I recognize it as being a high price to shell out. Many will not find that price attractive.
Met another IHC owner who says he is building a KB3 rat rod on a S10 chassis and a KB6 restoration. He says he visited on this site. Maybe he’ll be interested enough to return. He says finding parts is tuff. Who didn’t know that?
L110 owner since 1974, finally rebuilt 2014.
I was addicted to hokey pokey, but I turned myself around!

Re: Florida Autofest

If the workmanship is as good up close as it is from a meter away, the asking price is good value. As you wrote, "Many will not find that price attractive." That is so true. For many persons there is the reality check when they run out of funds and time because there was no written plan. 10 of the 14 IHC pickups I bought had angry wives pushing the dreamer to sell.

I would rather have tools I do not need than to need tools I do not have
No good person will ever go unpunished!
