OWNER: Jack Buchans, Seattle
OCCUPATION: Retired bus driver
TRUCK'S MAKE AND MODEL: 1949 Chevrolet half-ton pickup
"I LOVE MY TRUCK BECAUSE...I've always had old cars, such as a 1929 Ford Model A, 1939 Chevy flatbed and 1959 GMC 1-ton pickup. So all I was missing in that progression was the 1949 (also, that's my birth year). The truck has very beautiful styling with its clean, long lines. I call her Leche because she's the color of coffee con leche."
