And so, Boney Roberson had built a great weatherproof hot rod. Cruising hot or cold, wet or dry is now fun. Like all good hot rods this was a collaboration of friends that pulled it together and he would like to thank Raymond Nash for general building, paint, and bodywork, Larry Morris and Bob Ramsier for wiring and headliner work, and then Lawrence and Leonard Dubree for their woodworking efforts.

The truck is a study in simplicity blending quality parts to produce a unique hauler that is reliable, comfortable, and low maintenance. Sounds like our kind of truck! CT
