1950 Chevrolet pickup

I think I saw this truck for the first time around 1990. The owner and I were just young men with young families. He came to my shop and ask if I could lower it from its original height and suspension. I asked what he intended to do with it and he told me he wanted to Hot Rod it. So I sent him to Ray's Street Rods. The next time I saw it was a couple months later and it looked like this. Since then I've worked on it off and on and it never aged like we did. Our kids grew up and we grew older and now he tells me he's going to sell it. I'll miss seeing it from time to time but I'll still see my old friend.
