1951 Ford F-100Review
A Real Head Turner — The truck is fun to drive. The power generated by the "injected" 5.0 is awesome. It is a street rod and not used as a "work truck". Because I live in "Cowboy Country", the little truck gets a lot of thumbs-up. The ride is stiffer than I had hoped when I mounting the frame on a Town Car front suspension, but a change of strut springs should clear that issue up.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Power, handling, looks
Cons: Interior noise, parts availability
