MUNDAY – Tillman Burnett of Munday entered his restored 1951 Ford pickup in the Red Neck Pickup category at Summer’s Last Blast car show held Aug. 13 and 14 in Vernon and carried home a trophy.

Burnett acquired his pickup two weeks before his 16th birthday in March of 1975, and has been restoring it himself for over 40 years, with occasional help through the years from a few friends, such as Roger Johnson.
