Welcome to StreetDreamsTexas as we celebrate our 20th year in the classic and muscle car business. Around the beginning of the last century Henry Ford decided he would build a car for the masses. This was easier said than done, however, because until that time automobiles were expensive toys for the wealthy. Combining the perfection of the moving assembly line with brilliant engineering, Ford lowered the cost of a car to the point where any worker could afford one. By 1927 Ford had produced over 16 million Model T's and had changed the world forever. This beautifully restored 1925 Ford Model TT (1 Ton Truck) offers an additional bit of historical significance because it was the first year that Ford offered a factory produced pickup (as opposed to just the chassis with a custom body). She is sporting a gorgeous natural wood bed and a well-crafted and painted custom wood cab. This truck runs and drives like it should, but at least one driving lesson is highly recommended if you've never driven a 'T'. Features include good wood spoke wheels, kerosene running lamps, 12 volt conversion, and electric start. This would be an absolute blast to ferry guests in, or serve as an eye-catching display for a winery or restaurant. Sweetener? I promise that you'll never get a speeding ticket in this truck! Street Dreams (830-997-1950) is a full service dealership that can assist with worldwide delivery, insurance, and financing options.

Buying a classic car is really not the most logical decision, and there are a lot of people out there who should think twice when considering buying one.
In 1927, the Ford Model T, credited with putting the world on wheels, became the single most-produced car with more than 15 million built, a record it held until 1972.

Texans ride tall in the saddle, they say, although this is probably not what they had in mind. The Pick of the Day might look like an odd custom-bodied creation.
