Big wheels keep on turning, Proud Mary keeps on burning

C'mon. You know you're singing it in your head right now.

Rich installed the beautiful mahogany steering wheel that his folks sent him for Christmas on his 1961 Chevy truck.

It looks as if it were made for his truck, which is a copper color.

(And yes, Rich is in desperate need of a real key chain. The little pieces of plastic are really tough, aren't they?)

Our friend Garet (from the motorcycle accident) helped him install it. They actually used a tool called "steering wheel puller". Who knew?

Here's a quick peek at the steering wheel - not the original - that came with the truck from the previous owner. Yuck.

That was our Sunday. Steering wheel install + the Oscars. What a day.
