Well I've gone to the dark side!!!:D I just bought a new "to me" truck. It's a 1997 Ford F150. It's a 4x4 extended cab, with the third door, flair side short bed, with 95,000 miles!:D I'm a Chevy guy, but the price was right. I'm picking it up Tuesday night. I bought it from a local used car dealer, were we bought Mel' Kia. It should pull my 14ft trailer alot better than the little Blazer did. Tuesday can't get here quick enough!:D Well here it is! Being a Chevy guy, I feel so dirty!:D:D:D [img]/club2/attach/ehertzfeld/truck.jpg[/img] Elon

Ford
My last Ford was a 1980 1/2 T LWB F-150 6 cyl 4 sp, bought new. Great truck. I could get a Farmall Cub in the bed and still close the tailgate. Now I've been driving Nissans ('96, '97, 2003) Got to get back to Fords. (signed) Ford

It's ok Elon, I can forgive you this time. You could always change all the emblems and you could then feel better about that bowtie you'd be driving. Bowtie all the way, 63 C-10 in the garage and a 05 Silverado parked next to it.

Wouldn't that be like the green & yellow boys painting a Simplicity to look like a JD. :D

I was thinking the same thing Mike. After he drives it a while it will wash away the bowtie:D:D:D

Good emblems don't rust and as they say These colors Don't Run, Unless the metal it's painted to falls apart first;)

Congrats on your purchase, I've been driving an 89' F-150 with the 5.0 for a few years now, it has almost 200,000 miles on it and has had no major problems. Its hauled home more than its share of tractors, but I'd like to go back to a 3/4 ton some day, used to have a 1970 F-250, now that was a beast.

Glad you came to your sences! I've owned many trucks and the one Chevy (98 ext cab Siverado) ate up two transmissions on 90% highway withing 125,000 miles:(! Other than that it was a nice truck, but all my Fords, never gave me problems like that ;)
