For the last 15 years, a 1948 red GMC truck has permanently decorated Ray Herrera’s driveway. “It’s a one-owner,” Herrera boasts, explaining that he inherited the vehicle from his father after he passed. Next
to it, there’s a hand-built shrine to St. Francis that Herrera built
himself. A vintage, paper-stuffed Santa Claus is propped against the
pickup’s driver’s seat. “Everyone thinks he’s gross because he’s falling apart."
