1968 Ford F100 – Mike P.

March 17, 2021 | Tags: FB

My 1968 Ford F100 I am a Vietnam vet with a love of old Ford trucks. Thanks to my two sons Mike and Jason they brought back to life an old California bell work truck for their Father. The trucks life started as a repair truck for California Bell in San Fran. It was born with a short bed flare side, six cylinder with a 3 speed on the column. My sons built the truck for me and transforming it into a true muscle classic. Neither had any knowledge of builds, but with the help of YouTube and LMC ... read more >>

This was my dad's pick up. I have been driving it for about 20 years now. I am 71 and I even took my drivers test in this truck. I even drove it to high school sometimes (if dad would let me) I finally got it painted

Dad's Father's Day F100 My Dad bought this truck in 1972 at a dealership in Garden City. The first owner in 1964 was from Syracuse, KS from some receipts I found in the owner's manual. Dad let my older brother drive it to the family farm in Pawnee Rock, KS on the weekends. I had to settle for shifting the gears or just steer since I couldn't reach the pedals. My earliest memories were the extra clothes Dad kept between the seat and gas tank, and a gun rack in the back window. The truck passed hands to my ... read more >>

Dad’s 76 I grew up with this pickup. My dad and I hauled many loads of firewood and memories that I will have for many years ❤️ Dad passed almost two years ago and when the dust settled the family ask what I wanted of Dad’s and I said I wanted Dad’s 76. My brother hauled her over here from Idaho where she sat in one of Dads shops for over 15 years. Every time I came home for a visit I’d ask Dad if I could buy her and same answer, no going to fix it when I ... read more >>

1974 Ford F250 – Leslie U.

Dad's Ol'Blue My dad's name was Jose Luis, he was a cool guy, a stern man, and a very old school mexican, but a cool dad. He was loving, and hard when he had to be. In August last year, he had 4 heart attacks back to back... He survived for a while on machines in the hospital for a month. Then I lost him on September 12th. I saw the strongest man become the most vulnerable, and saddest man. I think of him seeing me cry, and take care of him every step of the way, until his ... read more >>

1948 Ford F1 – Arthur T.

March 3, 2021 | Tags: FA

It started as a dream when I was a kid cemented through seeing similar trucks in movies and then put into action because of what I learned from an episode of TRUCKS on power nation. Primarily what held me back from starting a project truck was the body work. I do not have the skill set to do all the body work and my biggest fear was spending a lot of money to have someone else do it only to have the finish scratched and dented through day to day life. I always have had a soft spot for ... read more >>

Two Tone Bricknose My truck has came a long way from a mud truck but I’ve got so many more plans for it yet. I was 14 when I saw it on craigslist & I did not expect this to be a project truck. I got it with the 6” lift already done & some faded 12.5 x 15 wheels. So far I’ve had to rebuild the 302 engine, get some body work done, polished the wheels, and many other countless parts have been replaced. I’m nowhere near done & I have so many more parts to add! ... read more >>

1989 Ford Bronco – Ben A.

Resto - Mod I bought this Bronco 2 xlt. I hope of putting a 4.0 engine in it, and I did it successfully. I pulled the 2.9 v6 out and wiring harness and bought a complete 1992 ford explorer with the 4.0. I pulled the engine and wiring harness out and installed them in the 1989 bronco 2. Runs like a top. Well worth the swap.

2005 Ford Ranger – Evan Y.

The Baby Truck Rides Again Joleen (my wife) and I purchased a house on small acreage in late 2007. It did not take too long before we realized that we needed a small, fuel efficient pickup to help with all the projects that come with land ownership. We did not anticipate it would take until late 2011 to find a clean, low mileage truck. Upon acquisition, the Baby Truck (we give our vehicles pet names) started hauling supplies and towing the equipment needed to maintain our property and my parents’ property in a neighboring county. Fazda (Ford/Mazda) trucks need ... read more >>

Frank the Tank I picked up this 72 f250 and immediately my 6 year old niece started calling it frank the tank. It has a 68 grille with a 351w and C6 auto with power steering. Thanks for looking.
