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.

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.

Father's Truck My father handed over this 1978 Ford truck to me (I was 17) which he purchased brand new. Shortly after that, he passed away unexpectedly at the age of 37 in January of 1983. We were cutting firewood with this truck in an ash swamp in the middle of winter in Minnesota when he experienced a heart attack. I have a lot of memories of him in this truck. He named the truck "Lord Mr. Ford" after the song by Jerry Reed. He always had a name for his trucks. I drove it for my junior and ... read more >>

2002 Ford F150 – Kim W.

A Gift of Appreciation I had a 1999 Ford Ranger that left me stuck in the desert until a little girl in a Jeep came to pull me out. I swore from that day on that my next truck would be a 4X4. Well, the Ranger was totaled in an accident, and I was in search of another truck. I had been giving my sister - in -law and her family a leg up after they fell on hard times. Well, one Sunday, they pulled up in front of the house and called me out. There sat a 2002 ... read more >>

1987 Ford F250 – Jerry B. & Walter M.

1987 Ford F250 Resurrection This truck began its life in Texas. Then one day, it was retired and put in a Texas field where it sat for 12 years untouched. It literally was coated in dirt and clay and had moss and mushrooms growing on it. Fuel tanks and lines rotted out. It was old and tired and needed new life. Oddly enough, it was perfectly preserved Texas style. One day, my buddy of over 30 years, Jerry Bachman and I decided to pull it up to the garage and begin the 1987 Ford F250 Resurrection. The paint is ... read more >>
