Veronica — My truck is a 1979 Ford F-150 regular cab short box. its got a 460 engine with 400 horses, its really fast and gets 15 miles per gallon when driven nice. Her name is Veronica because black is beautiful. She has custom leather bucket seats, and a thumping sound system. She's a real eye grabber.

Best Truck Iv Ever Owned!!! — I own one of these trucks. It is a short bed stepside that is Lifted 4in in the suspension and 3in in the body. This truck has been the most reliable truck that I have ever owned. I have had some problems with it but nothing major. I have restored it from the frame up. Great truck over all.
