Sentimental History - This truck was purchased by my Great Uncle in Fredricksburg, Iowa, who never traveled further than 50 mile from his home for all of his life. It was driven very little and stored in his barn for the first 6 years of its life. With only 3500 miles the truck went to my Grandmother when he passed away. My Grandmother gave the truck to my Father who brought it to CA. He passed the truck on to me in 1990. It was stolen from my home in CA shortly after and was missing for 2 years. I moved to WA state in 1991 where my truck was later found in Pomona, CA. I brought it to WA state in 1993 where the truck resides with me today.
To the shock of WA State Troopers, they reissued a new title for my once lost, but now found pickup. When the truck was returned to me I had found the 'gentleman' that stole it repainted it from blue to black, installed larger tires and rims and put on 25,000 miles.
Now celebrating its 40 Birthday, this is a classic Ford Short bed pickup. Straight six cylinder - 300 engine, 3-Speed Manual Transmission (converted from column to floor shifter), 2-Wheel Drive. 77,000 Original miles. Clean title, runs great. Body in Good shape, no accidents or repairs. I will miss this truck.

Let’s say you are buying your dream car, and you really can’t decide between the classic look of an old truck, or a modern muscle car.
So, what do you think is the fastest-growing segment of car collectors? European sports cars? Rare muscle cars? Classics?
An upcoming exhibit tracing the history of Ford F-Series pickup trucks since 1948, announced for January by LeMay seemed like a good jumping-off point for today’s Pick of the Week.
Open-wheel racing cars come in a variety of sizes, and that includes the size of the engine and the vehicle itself. For example, in road racing, drivers often start in smaller and less powerful Formula Vee or Formula Ford cars and work their way up to Grand Prix racing. On America’s oval tracks, the progression […]
