I love being able to identify cars no one else can name, but pre-'60s American trucks are a bit of a challenge for me. I think this is a 1951 Ford F-1, though it could be a few years later. Someone with a better knowledge of these things please tell me if I'm wrong.
Remember the guy from my exhausting/exhaustive race experience tome who woke up wet in a cold trailer? His name is Jerry Davey and, despite the cold, he trudged back to VIR to take this awesome shot. Thanks Jerry!
