Corky Marx lifts a photo to reveal a picture of her sitting in her 1951 GMC pickup when it was new. The ‘51 GMC was purchased by Marx’s dad, Howard Trumble, in Laramie. The family of four kids sold their house to buy this new truck and move to Green River when word of the new highway construction spread. Corky remembers the truck was delivered by train. Corky and her husband Ed restored the pickup and painted it a gorgeous Mandarin Copper color. (GAZETTE PHOTO / Michelle Tibbetts)
