    When it comes to my 55 Dodge pick up nothing is easy. This past year I had been thinking I made a very costly mistake. I bought the truck from a CL ad, there was a group of young guys not sure if brothers or friends in Connecticut . I was given a very old title and bill of sale. One of the guys bought the truck to restore but never had time for it, he also never registered the truck. I insured the truck but never registered. When I had about $15,000 into truck I had a panic attack about registering truck.Well no one could find the vehicle ID numbers. 3 different people tried this past year to register. Always failed. I had all this money into truck I could not register. I knew no one would buy it, the only thing I could do to get a small amount of my money back would be to take apart truck and sell parts which could take years. I didn't even want to look at truck reminder of how stupid I was not to register when first purchased. While researching what to do I came across a ad for company that helps register antique cars. A lot of money later my truck is now register to me:celebrate:celebrate:celebrate:celebrate:celebrate:celebrate I have been on ebay motors buying parts needed :ya:ya:ya:yarestoration back on

    The truck saga continues, money solves everything unfortunately in this case lol. Sorry you’ve had a tough time with this restoration project, hopefully you will drive it in a parade one day.

    Can't wait to see a picture of you tooling around town in your truck.
    How much longer for the restoration?
