Post New garage addition...
Okay, maybe not... :lol: I had mentioned in the daily thread but wanted to make it official here that we'll be welcoming a new member to the family in the near future. My wife found out she was pregnant back in mid-September, but we didn't get to break the news to her family first until Thanksgiving. We found out last month that she's expecting a little boy. He will be named Webber after my wife's grandfather, but we plan to call him Webb. We're still working on a middle name. Unless he comes sooner/later than expected, he's due on June 3rd. This will be our first child, so it's a mixture of excitement & nervousness all at the same time.

We're planning to decorate his room in a truck theme, & my wife has a couple ideas she wants to recreate using emblems as an art piece. I'll post the pics she's using for reference. If any of you guys have GM-related truck emblems laying around that you don't plan to use & don't mind getting rid of, please post a pic. I will show them to my wife to see if it's something of interest. If so, I'll then get with you about purchasing. Below are similar examples of what we're trying to do:

Also, my wife found a lady that does custom baby rattles. She had one made to resemble my '66 C-10, & I think it turned out pretty cool!

Shout out to Dwane for his contribution to the '60-66 era. Thank you sir. Here's what I currently have. Trying to decide if I want to stop at four or add a fifth from the '73-87 era. I'm planning to do another one though, so the '73-87 could be included on that piece.

Not on the wall yet, but my father-in-law made a bit of progress on the emblem art piece. He used some old wood from their family barn for the emblem backing. We think it turned out pretty cool! I'll post another pic once it makes it's way onto the nursery wall.

Just to note, the pink on the left side of the GMC emblem is just a reflection.
