Back In The Family ~ '58 Chevy

Dad and Brent went over to pickup Dad's old truck/new truck. Old being he had it back in the day; the color was pink. Yes pink. I can remember all 5 of us riding in it; that was obviously before seat belt laws.

He took me for a ride yesterday after lunch. It even smelled the same to me. I remember smells for some reason.

So a little back story. Probably around 15 years ago or longer, my Dad donated this pickup to his brother Danny. Danny was an instructor at the votech. He/his students worked the thing over and turned it into a beauty. Danny passed away and his wife had the truck and then she gave it to my cousin John. John later sold it. Around a month ago I was talking to a friend telling her about this truck and how I wanted to go over and take pictures of the kids with the truck. At that time I didn't know John had sold it. So I was asking Dad about it and he told me John didn't have it but the guy who did have it had it for sale about a year ago. I told Dad he should buy it. I really though it would have been sold already. I didn't think about again. So last Saturday I got a call from my sister and she told me that Dad bought the truck back. I was floored. I couldn't believe it. Shelly said it was meant to be back in the family. Funny how things come full circle :)

P.S. Colton's game was cancelled yesterday after I had already taken him in for the game (insert eye roll here). The other team didn't have enough players. I am still wondering why it took them until the morning of the game to realize they didn't have enough players. So next game is Monday if it doesn't get rained out.
