    Our friend Mike Cross has lent us his pictures to share . Mikes working career in the Woods started at WFI Gordon River as a Welder , he then moved to BCFP Caycuse Div. as a Welder then a Heavy Duty Mechanic , finishing his time in the woods as a Logging Truck Driver for Timberwest . Anything he took on he did well . His 1st pictures are of a 1958 Hayes cab he is building as a pickup . 01.jpg 02.jpg 03.jpg 04.jpg

    Unless Mike changed it , he told me several years ago he had a Motor Home frame with a BBC 454 . The engine is out of a School Bus that had a tree blown down on it . the gear cover on front of engine he made from Billit Aluminum . The fuel tanks are oblong to keep a low profile , his brother made the ends for him out of Billit Aluminum . Mike is very talented and if he can't make something , he knows someone who can .
