Midnight Cowboy...

a 1969 film directed by John Schlesinger.
This was the first starring role and in my uppinion a genius one... by Dustin Hoffman as Ratso Rizzo! Also starring Jon Voight, in his first role after six years of TV work he plays the dumb Texan Joe Buck...

Joe Buck is a small town Texas boy with a dream.  Leave his small town where he works as a dishwasher and head to the big city of New York and find the only work he can, as a male gigolo.

He eventually runs into “Ratso” Rizzo, a small time con man with a bad limp that promises to introduce him to people that can help him out.  Soon enough, Joe realizes that Ratso screws him and takes his money. 

Joe’s broke, runs into Ratso and they form a friendship.  As the harsh NYC winter comes, Ratso gets sick.  Joe does a couple of dates, gets enough money from a man paying for his services and takes Ratso to Miami...

"Truck Tuesday"

You know I'm not a big fan of shiny paintjobs but... Dan Collins did the right thing whit his '38 Ford pickup!

It's been said that this truck belonged to a sailor who used a military louver punch to vent the hood, put a dropped axle under it, and add juice brakes from a '40 Ford. By the time Dan got his hands on it, the truck wasn't in the greatest condition. Initially, the plan was to build a basic beater, but as many a project does, this one snowballed big time. From its shiny paint to its finished interior, the truck is now anything but a beater, as you can plainly see. Dan chopped the top and even  added a '67 Corvette 327--complete with an Offy/Stromberg 97 six-two setup. The custom-mixed Wasabi Gold pearl applied by Dan's friend Nick O'Teen is complemented by an off-white and black tuck 'n' roll job. A set of '40 Ford steelies is mounted with Firestone whitewalls and stainless Mercury caps to go! Complete Story
