Chevy trucks. You gotta’ love ‘em. And there was a lot of love to go around on Saturday when 125 shiny Silverados, shimmering C-10s, beautiful Blazers, and awesome Apaches packed the Municipal Park in White House, Tenn., for the Southeastern All-Chevy Truck Nationals. There was a Chevy truck for every taste and style (I even found three Fords in the adjoining parking lot), plus a robust Chevy truck parts swap meet. I took the old HMC ’63 C-10 out there and snapped a bunch of pictures. Of course, the one thing the pictures don’t show you is how hot it was. I’m no meteorologist, but I would estimate that it was 125 degrees out there with 275% humidity. And even under those conditions, the show staff ran things off smoothly, and everyone still seemed to have a good time.
2015 marked our second-annual tradition of bringing the old truck out on the Fourth of July to watch the Mt. Juliet fireworks show. It was also Saturday night, which meant the Chick-fil-A in Mt. Juliet was holding their weekly car cruise. The turnout was light, partly because people were celebrating the Fourth elsewhere, and partly because a massive thunder storm was moving in. There were still some nice cars before the sky opened up, so let’s take a look at some of the standouts.
