Story of Vehicle

I had always dreamed of someday owning a vintage Ford pickup truck. After listening to speaker, Tony Robbins tapes one day, I decided to write down exactly the truck that I wanted to the detail. That was in 2011. I am a director at the AgriCultural Museum in Boerne and two of the other directors both had vintage trucks. They agreed to help me find a truck of my own. After getting several text messages with pictures of old trucks from Ryan and Mike one summer, I decided to send them a picture of my ideal truck that I had in mind using a google images search, so they could get a little closer to finding my ideal truck. So, in the fall of 2018, I found the picture of a light green 1950 Ford on the internet and sent it to the guys. Then I thought, “Maybe this exact truck is actually for sale!” After doing some research, sure enough, the cute little sea green truck was indeed for sale at a dealership on consignment in Oregon. When I called the salesman, he said, “It’s waiting here for you.” The rest is history, and Seabiscuit was shipped to Texas. I enjoy taking her out on sunny weekends down Hill Country backroads. She has automatic steering, brakes, and I can play Pandora through the radio speakers, just like I had wanted. She has a covering over her bed that can contain musical instruments, art supplies, and just about anything I need to carry. My dog, Ellie is usually in the passenger seat riding shotgun.
