Driving Route 66 by Philip Bridle published on 2013/03/01 13:40:56 +0000 Two brothers inherit their Dad's beat up old pickup truck.... and after getting it working again, take it for a 'make or break' 1000 mile journey to the beaches of California...... The Chevrolet 3100 pickup was sold in huge numbers from 1949-55, and was powered by the ancient but ultra-reliable 'Stovebolt Six' engine. Today, restorers are rescuing the surviving trucks from fields and barns all over America. I have restored several classic cars, and would love to get my hands on one of these classic trucks..... so until I can.... thought I'd better write a song about one instead !!
