Altona Illinois is 4 miles from my home town of Oneida. My best friend Doc Mills and I were just out of High school and always scouting the Town dump for anything we could use.
Best find was a 1958 ford retractable. We knew the guy hauling it to the dump and 30 minutes later we drug it home behind Ole Blue. Doc's 1954 F-100. We had big plans for it but then Doc was shipped off to Vietnam
and everything changed. I went to work on the Burlington Northern and got married. Doc unfortunately spent the next 14 Months in Hell. As I think about it now, those days cruising the dumps for treasures and dreaming of what we
might build with the cool stuff we scavenged were some of the greatest times of our lives. Sure miss the the good ole days.
