Gene Watson ‘s Car and Truck Talk

Hello Friends –   So many of you have asked me about what I like to do when I’m not singing, that I decided I’d share a few photos with you and tell you about my hobby and my latest truck.  I needed a hard working truck – one to haul stuff – so this week I bought a 2013 Chevy Silverado.  I know they make a good Ford truck and lots of others but I got a good deal on my Chevy so that’s the one for me.  But I can’t leave anything in straight from the factory condition. It’s just not mine, until I’ve customized it.  At my shop, which we named The Toy Shop,  I even have a little logo that I slap on the back of my vehicles once I completely overhaul them the way I want them.  The logo says “The Toy Shop” so if you find one of my cars and trucks out there somewhere you know I had a hand in adding something to that thing.  For this truck I added drop spindles and a Bell Tech lowering system and dual chrome exhaust pipes.   Then I changed out the black mirrors and handles and replaced those with chrome, added chrome brake lights and door lights and last but not least I changed the wheels to 20 inch Denali’s. I may add something else before it’s all over but that’s enough to start with.  For me, this is fun. This is how I like to spend my time when I’m not enjoying my work as a singer (and we know that’s not really work now is it?)  I have a sign in the Toy Shop that says “The Home of Pretty Trucks”.  I guess that about sums it up. I like a pretty truck. What can I say.  Every song you hear on today’s radio is about a truck.  Maybe I was country before it was cool.   More like you couldn’t beat the country out of me with a stick is what I’d say.   When I get back from Canada I’ll try to remember to take a picture of the Toy Shop Logo for you to see .  I always enjoy hearing about your hobbies too.  We have some talented fans for sure.    Take care and I’ll catch up with you here again soon,  Gene

    Pretty truck Gene. Like the red, like my Tracker. I always say, I’d rather be pushing my Chevy than driving a foreign car. My Daddy says if I don’t change the oil soon, I just might be, LOL.
