Double Nickle
« on: January 08, 2013, 07:11:43 PM »
Well it looks like the trend is rattle can for me.. This is from the early 80's. 210 workman's wagon powered by a Nailhead with 2 spd glide. Fast yes, but I wouldn't have it any other way. After connecting with a guard rail in winter I reluctantly sold the wagon to a guy in Pryor. This is another that I would love to get back. Would like to find out if it is still in tact and available.

Ya don't we all wish that we had the hind sight to have kept most of what has gone through our hands. Some I don't mind, but there are a few that hold a special place. Say from 56 to 59.

Well has luck (?) would have it the person that now own's this wagon contacted me on FB. To prove that it is a small world he lives in McAlester Oklahoma, the town that I moved to in the early 70's. That is a whole lot of another story.

Anyway he posted some pictures of what she looks like now.

I bought it in Ada around 82/83. Drove her to Oklahoma City. Then to Lawton around 86. The guy that has her now lived in Stillwater when he bought her and then moved to McAlister.
