For years we had both wanted a fat fender Ford. We even knew right where one sat and who owned it. For 28 years she sat there. Our friend had hoped to restore her himself for years, so he would not part with her. In February 2016, my husband ran into him and ask about her again. His health was not good enough to do anything with her but was unsure about parting with his father's truck. Something must have struck his heart because about a month later he called. He knew how much we wanted her, and explained ... read more >>

My 1965 Ford F-100, "Effie", was originally purchased by a farmer in Soda Springs, Idaho. It has a 240 6 cylinder and a 3 on the tree. Dateline Iraq: November 2011, two days before my birthday. I had not talked to my parents in a few months and now I was able to call home. Bad news, they had rolled my truck! Thankfully both of them were fine but the truck was totaled. So for my mid-tour leave I went back to home to Idaho to take the salvageable parts off of my wrecked truck. While there I had ... read more >>

I have been looking for a Bronco for approximately 5 years. I've wanted one since I was young, but I finally had the money to make my dream come true. Now with three boys, my wife and I thought this was the best time to do something like this. I finally found this 1975 Bronco a few miles away from our house and decided to pull the trigger. I found the best guy in town to redo it and he helped make our dream come true. One of the biggest issues was being able to have the three boys ... read more >>

I bought this 2011 Ford Ranger in 2015 with 25,000 miles on it. I am the second owner. I was looking for a small truck that had four wheel drive and a six cylinder. When I found this Ranger for sale I jumped on it. This truck has been great for my lifestyle. The fold-up jump seats in the back make a great area for my German shorthair, Zorro, to ride.I really like having the four wheel drive, and the 4.0 provides plenty of power for this size of truck. Oil changes are quick and easy because of how high ... read more >>

This is my 1981 Ford F-150 that my dad bought as a sophomore in high school. At the time it was a two tone blue and silver with a 302. By the time he was out of college, he had lifted it 4 inches, put 32 inch tires on it, replaced the 302 with a rebuilt 351W, and many other things.After he was married and had kids it was put away in the barn for about 15 years. When I was 14 I noticed it and we pulled it out so I could mess around with it. Now, 3 years ... read more >>

Wanting to buy a new vehicle was a pretty big deal for me at the age of 24. I had just returned home to Vermont from a four year tour from Army active duty and I wrecked my first used car in the middle of a VT winter- it was devastating. In the Spring of 2001 I started a new job working as a parts clerk for a truck garage 25 miles from my house and I joined the Army National Guard. I needed to find something quickly, but it had to be reliable and something I would be ... read more >>

Ford and Chevy lovers have always enjoyed friendly competition. But what happens when twin brothers choose sides? In all honesty, Larry and Gary's love for trucks (and each other) is greater than any brand loyalties they have. Larry's Fords My love for classic vehicles goes back to my high school days. My first vehicle was a 1949 Ford Coupe, which I co-owned with my twin brother, Gary. After that, being influenced by older brothers who also loved classics, I purchased many vehicles, including Chevys, Dodges and Fords. At one point, I was buying and selling so many vehicles, the ... read more >>

The Legend of Ol' ‘Yller, 1961 Ford F-100 In the fall of 1960, Dad purchased a new bright yellow 1961 Ford F-100, 292 cu. in., custom 4-wheel drive with heavy duty springs and 17” wheels. He bought it from Heater and Heater Ford in Thompson Falls, Montana. I was a senior in high school and my friends and I were happy to test its capabilities. I could fill pages with the adventures of this truck and can testify to the toughness of Ol Yller, but will relate just a few. Thompson Falls is a small town in western Montana and ... read more >>
