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 >>

Been searching for a Chevy Panel truck for awhile. Finally found one at Sherman Oaks California on Craigslist. Had a good mate go check it out and buy it for us in May 2017. It was sitting in a gravel yard all dusty under a carport. The previous owner didn't have any time to drive it so was selling it after he had done improvements for holidaying in, as we say in Australia. It was a totally different truck once we washed and waxed it. What a find, we were over the moon to find such a lovely truck ... 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 >>

This truck belonged to a family friend who bought it new in 1982 at a local Chevrolet dealership here in San Antonio. He lived and worked in downtown SA so he didn't put a bunch of miles on it - it actually has only 58K on the ticker. He passed away in 2008 and the truck sat in the garage until I bought it in 2014 and began a 2 year frame on restoration doing all the work myself. I wanted to keep the original paint scheme going and did my best to keep the truck as close to ... 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 >>

My love for trucks began in high school, and throughout the years I would own several different trucks. Our family had a steel frame building business so trucks were necessary for our everyday operations. Ownership for this truck dates back to 1974. The truck was just 3 years old at the time and was advertised in the local paper. Its first owner lived on Mackinaw Island. The owner’s job was maintenance on the Island; hence the tool boxes. The truck is a 1971: ¾ ton, 4 wheel drive, four on the floor, with lock out hubs and 1 ton ... read more >>

The orange truck is a 1986 W150. I found it on a Facebook Dodge truck trader page. It was being sold as a nearly perfectly restored truck, with a small ignition problem needing to be addressed. Let’s just say that was as far from the truth as possible. The truck was a complete mess, with so many mechanical problems it wasn’t even funny. Sadly, it was an internet sale that was paid in full. Live and learn. After getting it home from Lansing, KS, I was able to get the correct wheels and tires back on it. That’s when ... 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 >>

I have had the truck for about a year. I bought it from a classic dealer in Henderson, NV. I retired about a year and a half ago. My daily driver had been a late model Silverado, but after several months I realized I wasn't using the Silverado. I also have a ’38 Chevy Street Rod. My garage is tandem bay and I got tired of moving the Silverado every time I wanted the Street Rod, so I put the Silverado in the back bay. Then I really wasn't using the Silverado so I sold it and got the ... 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 >>
