Hello Jim: My name is Paul McGarr and I bought my “1951 GMC” in 1994. I always wanted one because my dad had a 50 Chevy 5 window when I was a youngster. Originally I wanted to buy a Chevy 5 window but could not find one in half decent shape. I should mention that I live in Guelph, Ontario and we have winter snow and road salt to deal with so there isn’t many good old trucks from this area. I did find one from Alberta and even though it wasn’t a Chevy, it looked almost identical except for the tailgate and front grille and parking lights. I wanted my Dad to help me restore it but, unfortunately he became ill and passed away before it was finished. He did get to see it about 75% finished and I made him drive it out my driveway. I’ll never forget the glow in his eyes. I finished it in his memory and always smile inside when I look at it because I can still see him in it, driving out my driveway as sick as he was, he even had a catheter in at the time. I am sending a picture of my truck for all to see. Keep on restoring those old advance design trucks.

Sincerely, Paul McGarr Guelph, Ontario, Canada

P.S. I almost forgot to mention I got a lot of new parts from Jim Carter’s as well as help and information over the phone and by fax. Thanks I couldn’t have done it without your expert and professional help.
