For you Desert Dog lovers out there, Gordon shared a 1977 magazine ad that showed Chuck Conners pitching Dodge Trucks. Interesting enough, the truck was equipped with Desert Dogs (unmentioned in the ad).Unfortunately, I downloaded the pic a week or so ago and can’t locate it at the moment.

However, I was able to locate a commercial, also featuring Chuck, that has a
shows off a 1977 Dodge Pick Up PowerWagon D-200 with Desert Dogs on it (possibly from the same photo shoot). The tires are given a closeup at the 19 second mark.

    It was commercials like this and racers like Rod Hall that influenced a young lad like myself to buy my first step side Power Wagon in the late 70’s. Having trucks like the Macho and the Warlock kind of influenced me too. Lol

    Of course, I really couldn’t afford to fill the gas tank at the time either. And yes, Desert Dogs and True Trac tires were at the top of the list then. Great memories!
