My 1986 Ford F-150. — It's a 1986 ford, with a 5.0 (*302) Engine package. Everything on the vehicle is stock. It's got 125k miles on it and it's got a flawless exterior/interior. Eventually I plan to upgrade the exterior/interior somehow but I have not picked a specific style yet. I have changed the wheels, to a 50's style, baby moon chrome rims with thicker tires in the back and smaller ones in the front, both for 15" rims. I will post pictures later if there seems to be some interest in it.

A Good Old Truck — I owned it recently so it handled like you would expect an old truck would, it needed some repairs but considering it was over 20 years old it was expected, 80's styling was not especially good for any vehicle but it's 4x4 short bed look helped. it was a 4 spd 300ci inline 6 and it got about 12 mpg. the 4 spd made it fun but the i6 isnt exactly the fastest engine

One Hell Of A Truck — The trucks a beast, it's a 302, except with elderbrock intake, carb, and heads, plus a set of unknown brand headers. Its a 4 speed 4x4 with granny low and yesterday we had 16+ inches of snow where i live plus the drifts built up in front of my truck and the truck started immediatly and drove right down my country drive way in 4 wheel drive in 2nd gear the whole time without a problem, that truck amazes me. not only that i get compliments all the time. Oh ya and the best part is, if you get bigger tires and get a lil lift, no one ever rides your ass : )
