Lazenby Lane Wellman Way Car Show. My Dad Saved Every Car and Tractor He Ever Bought

Off Wellman Way, We Are Truck Farmers On Lazenby Lane

I can't believe these cars are in our circular driveway. It's okay if they get worked on. Dustin's truck has "gone green" it's growing lichens and moss all over it. '56 Ford Pick-up Chia Pet. Might be worth something! My Steve's is the Valiant in the middle, and Dave, my son-in-law just got that DeSoto and it's in such excellent condition, but it looks like it has a dent in my picture, but it's just a shadow from our big Sycamore tree in the middle of the driveway.The DeSoto was free, like in "no money," free, because the fire department was burning the garage down for a drill. Had to get the garage cleaned out and no one wanted a car a "traveler" slept in. lol Free is good, if it doesn't rot-away here on the ranch.

I bought that postcard in Ashford, Arizona at the north gas station. That picture looks like m
y dad and his Model T Ford flatbed, before it went down the Santa Paula Creek in a flood. I think the truck in the postcard is a power wagon. Doesn't matter. That guy is so like my dad, Gene Wellman! My dad's Ford was working, had all it's parts and is what I learned to drive in when I was in 6th grade. The big ol' Ford was navy blue, had gears with compound low. I almost ran over my uncle, Frankie O'Connor, while he was bucking hay on the back. I still don't do reverse well. I know Frankie remembers that day, I didn't tell my dad.

I did not make the new mark on the FJ and that's is absolutely the truth, I promise!
