She’s Here! Now What?

In December, Ron found a sweet, sweet 1965 Grumman Kurbside aluminum step van on eBay.  A food truck company in Maine (Bite into Maine) had originally purchased her with the intention of a mobile lobster roll truck but ended up with a Maine winter friendly brick and mortar shop, so they listed the truck for sale. We decided to take a chance and won the auction! After a few stressful days of trying to arrange transportation from Maine to Virginia, the truck finally showed up in Fulks Run.

We had a blast decorating the truck for Christmas, and loved seeing local customers stop to take a picture. A few locals told us that they recognized the truck- in the past local chicken hatcheries used these trucks to deliver baby chicks (locally called pee-pees) to farmers.

Now that our busy Holiday and curing seasons are over, we’ve had time to take the truck to the shop. It’s getting some rehab and we’re adding a few “modern” touches (um- hello, vintage restaurant booths!) and is expected to be back later this spring.

We’re throwing around ideas- what do you want to buy from the truck? Grilled pork or chicken sandwiches, fried ham, a fresh snow cone, or maybe even ham pot pie? Leave us a comment below!
