Ian Roussel's newest build, the Bucket O Fun





and the engine is a Diamond REO, not a Rio. You know that, REO was a company from waayyy back in 1904 when Ransom E Olds made the REO company to make cars and trucks, busses were made too. Diamond T made trucks and semis (tractor trailer / 18 wheelers / (or whatever you call them)) and REO and Diamond T merged in 1967. The White trucking company bought that, and that is how a Diamond REO engine comes from a White truck. As soon as I read Rio, I knew that some explanation would be a good thing http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diamond_Reo_Trucks









if you can't remember where you heard the name Ian Roussel, it might have been from the Space Junkie at Gene Winfield's open house http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2010/10/space-junkie-by-ian-roussel-was-at-gene.html  or the video http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2011/03/ian-roussel-kustom-cars-lead-sleds-54.html
