Great story, as a vintage car buff, I really dug it. Seeing that Ronnie drove a manual steering old truck around definitely upped my respect of him No easy trick tight parking and such.

I can see Ronnie looking down on his restored truck with "A Big Ol' Southern Grin".
During this dark day, maybe that's Ronnie saying "everything's gonna be OK".

I believe Ronnie only had that truck a very short time. Less than a year.

Cool story. Liked that they didn't change or "even clean" the steering wheel.

Ronnie had the truck for a shorter time than I thought.
