Built Ford Tough — It's a little over 24 years old and still running stronger than a mule, 351 Cleavland has enough power to pull the world, cheapest car I've owned so far :), Nothing stands in this trucks way, especially small economy cars and children in streets :)

Cons

Fuel mileage

I Miss This Truck It Drove Awesome In The Snow And Sounded Sweet. — Performance- Acceleration sucks, braking was ok, and it handled like a truck. It would pull like crazy, but it wouldn't do it fast. Build Quality- it ran and drove well, the only things I had to put in it was a new u joint, valve cover gasket, and vacuum pump Appearance- It looks tough, it puts hair on your chest just by looking at it. I turned the pump up so it could roll coal which made it even better.\ Cost of ownership- I remember the day I checked the mileage and seen 13 mpg...... it made me want to stand up and cheer.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

1985 F-250 Supercab Long Bed 7.5l C6 — My first car and got it for only $1,000. It has a lot of new parts but everything that didn't get replaced by the previous owner is shot,(streeing gear box, rear shocks, rear bushings)and some odder things like the fuel pump cut off switch and gas gauges not working. Lots of torque though, sounds like it has a cam in it but I think it's just no cats, headers, and the magnaflows.

Perfect Lol — it is a great truck, really fun to drive, well designed, very comfortable, very reliable, good on road performance, nice to travel, and perfect for towing, it has plenty space in the pick up for everything you want to carry

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
