A Little Saturday Nite Bluegrass Div (Pick 'em up Truck subsection)

“With Ford’s 1965 introduction of the Twin I-Beam, they touted several benefits of the new front suspension system including rugged construction, improved wheel alignment, reduced tire wear and front-end maintenance, smoother ride, and better control.

Jason Owen tells the story in this song of a country boy’s new found freedom driving Daddy’s truck on the backroads of Charlotte County, Virginia. Back in a time when gas was cheap, and the girl, she’s pretty! And then there’s Mamma, who worries every time he gets behind the wheel! We hope everyone enjoys this rural American story from a different era of time, and that a good vibe will be had by all with Daddy’s Twin I-Beam.” -- Steve Thomas (Props to John Lawless - Bluegrass Today)
