Welcome to our ‘Car of the Month’ blog post series where we will be sharing some of the most fascinating and remarkable car stories, restoration projects and travel adventures of our customers.
Last month we took you through a heart-warming restoration story of Mark’s 1930 Aston Martin “International”, that has won the Aston Martin Trophy at the Concours of Elegance 2020, held at Hampton Court Palace. This November we’re continuing with our fourth ‘Car of the Month’ story by Shawn Sherrill and John Meyer, the two hosts of the Get Out N Drive Podcast.
Based in Missouri, USA, the guys own a special Get Out N Drive Podcast Shop Truck, Saddletramp, a 1968 C10. Saddletramp is the beating heart of Shawn and John’s podcast, in which they share things you NEVER wanted to know about cars and why they should be out on the road and NOT in your garage! Their amazing C10 also stars in the National Get Out N Drive Day, which was established by their podcast’s Promotions Manager, Joann Meyer, in attempt of encouraging everyone to hit the road!
Here is Saddletramp’s story:
