Yesterday when I went grocery shopping in my modern car, one of the boys at the market commented that I wasn't driving my "old truck".



Hearing that from a teenage boy wasn't quite as surprising as it was from the rancher who was afraid that "all those old trucks" on last fall's Model T tour would scare his cows. Yesterday was at least the third time in the past year that I've heard a Model T automobile called a truck. I've always known the difference, but then, I'm old.

If it isn't glossy and slick and shaped like something a rat left behind then it must be a truck.
From another old guy.

Steve,
You have gotten younger and prettier! Who is that driving your car?

Nice Truck Mr Jelf, seems the fuel problem is gone?

Yeah, I get that too in both Karen's '18 Touring and my Model A Town Sedan. What's even worse, I've had some people call my TT a car! I don't understand it, but it looks as if it's not an isolated incident.

What, no funny hats?

And coming from someone that is always complaining about blurry pictures, we'll not get into your photographic awareness--That sun is blinding.

I drove my T a few years ago, as it appears in my profile picture, to the store. Nobody called it a truck but when leaving a lady asked my wife and I if that was all we could afford to drive. Guess I should have painted it first.
