My son and I both work overseas in the electrical field. You have seen several of this type of truck I have made over the years showing the Embassy or post I worked. I decided to make a truck that shows off the places Matt has worked. I haven’t made a truck for each place he has worked, but I listed the places he has worked as an electrician since 2010 on this one. I also suspect there will be places that I will have add in the coming years. Picture #3 are a “few” of my trucks from work stations. Picture #4 is my present embassy in Moscow, Russia and hopefully my last. Someday hopefully we will get back together and I can hand it to him. Simple builds, but a lot of memories with each of them. Oh, the grill is an arc shield from a 400 amp I line breaker.
The Green one dates pre- 1998 when I still had Perkins Electric in Florida.
