The Dargo

Thursday, December 13th, 2007

Sometime in the mid-1970s my mechanical brother Marv decided to turn his 1963 Dodge car into a truck. When Marv decides to do something, he follows through. I don’t think he had an acetylene torch back then – he must have worn out quite a few hacksaw blades.

The finished product was, in my opinion, very cool (in a backwoodsy way).

Unfortunately it didn’t have four wheel drive so it wasn’t the most practical truck for the Shell Lake roads.
