Seems to be in pretty decent shape, I wouldn't leave it there too long, good ones are getting harder n' harder to find !!

She did. It’s so beautiful. Yodeling in harmony is not something everyone can do.

She and Ricky Skaggs came to Clark Air Base in 1989 to do a USO tour. I was working the US Customs desk with my drug dog when their plane landed at 2am. They were ushered into a VIP room while their paperwork was processed and, being a huge Skaggs fan, I snuck into the room. They were both so very gracious and kind to that desperately homesick 20 year old kid and she was a pretty as a picture and seemed like a living angel to me. They both signed a tour shirt for me that I’ve kept all these years.

Last year, Ricky Skaggs played locally and I had him re-sign it. Tonight, Suzy did as well.

Here’s the shirt and a photo I snapped in 1989.

I hope the owner of that C cab doesn't leave it out in the weather too long. It appears to be in better shape than most of them.

Ooh yum, Express Box... Must be drier than a popcorn fart there. I hope IF it ever changes hands, it doesn't get painted.
What a beautiful truck!
Cool bits about Suzy and Ricky and love that shirt! :)
If Rich ever paints this scene, it'll look exactly like that really cool photo! :)
Since I lost my mind mind, I feel more liberated
