The rusting hulk of the Chevrolet Army truck sat near the machine shop off Virginia Avenue in Hagerstown for more than three decades. When its owner, William Kaplan, died in 2004 at the age of 93, his son inherited the truck. William Glenn Kaplan had his heart set on restoring the truck, something he would do to honor his father. “When I see this truck, I see my dad, and I restored it in his memory,” said William Glenn Kaplan, 63, of Maugansville. It last was used around 1973, and was idle for so long that its engine locked up. In 2006, the truck was put on a tractor-trailer and taken to his son's property in Hedgesville, W.Va.
