Truck's rolling along

Hey,

Busy time in truck building land.  Picked up 6 of the 8 loads of quarry stone and 2 pallets of Bluestone this week. The front grill's done and side doors are halfway.  Things are mostly on schedule.  The rear window is off to the sandblaster for all the names.  The tailgate goes on in the next few days along with building the fenders. 

Detroit is sending engineers to Maple Corner to take notes on production methods.

Save the date June 23 from 2-7 (followed by a play in the Blue Barn Theater) and here are your tickets for the Stone Truck Unveiling Party and Extravaganza.  Note:  You don't really need tickets.  More details to follow as the date gets closer.

      Looking good! Don't know if I can get to the party, but it sure would be a good excuse to head to VT for the weekend.
