We’d say the extended cab is probably the coolest part of the truck, but when we asked Dannie, he said the coolest thing is the fact that he can jump in and drive it, sometimes towing the mid-century--style fiberglass teardrop trailer he built from a kit. The steel toolbox and bumper were his own additions. The trailer hauls luggage, chairs, cleaning supplies, and whatever else Dannie needs when he hits the road. In 2008, he hit the road with the Hot Rod Magazine Power Tour, which followed a C-shaped route from Little Rock to Madison, Wisconsin, via Kansas and Nebraska. It was a 2,500-mile circle by the time Dannie got back to Linden. He’s also driven the ’56 to the F-100 Supernationals and to numerous local shows, where the all-of-the-above ’56 extended cab typically attracts a few trophies and a lot of attention. CCT
