This Old Truck — My lobster (that's what I call my truck...it's red and sounds like your in a can or cave when you shut the door) may be old, but it's sturdy & tough. Not like these new cars that dent or crumble if you happen to have a fender bender.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love this old pickup! Not much on it I can't fix myself and for the most part, part are relatively cheap.

Cons: It's getting up there in years and parts are getting harder and harder to find. There aren't many folks in this neck of the woods that know how to adjust or rebuild carburetors.

Great Truck, I Hope I Never Have To Sell It — This was my first car and I still have it four years later. I do most of the work myself and it is one of the easiest things to work on. Runs and drives great, no 4x4 but it still makes it anywhere a non-modified 4x4 would go. Only has a 302 with only minor upgrades and it still takes off nicely while still giving a smooth ride. Front suspension is a little soft.

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

Pros: Power, Utility, Ride

Cons: I-beams

Ford Did Something Right In The 60's They Built A Truck Tougher Than Any Before With The Tough Look —

The 2nd best truck FORD ever built the best being the 1964 F-100 it has a few draw backs one is the twin I beam front suspension it is hard to realine once out and is hard to steer. The F-100 also is not good for hauling heavy loads the the rear 9 inch while a great choice for drag racing is not strong enough to handle a heavy load for long. The FE or big block 360- 390 is one of the best engines ever built don't believe me just try to I have run them without oil and never hurt one. they are also fun to build up you can get as much as 2000 hp out of one just using the combo of pistons and air-fuel intake mixture. the rotating assembly of the FORD is almost bullet proof! when was the last time you heard some one say the bottom end of my FORD broke? FORD truck looked tough up till 1980 when they started the what I call cheap truck plastic and poor quality made them bad not as bad as Chevy or Dodge but bad enough and they also had a bad wiring harness that would short out and cause the truck to burn. Today's truck are wimpy cars built to appeal more to women than be used as real trucks I refuse to own any new truck give my my truck with it's hopped up 360 505 lift cam flat top pistons 750 holly carb headman headers it will pass everything but a gas station! LOL

Pros: it looks tough and I look cool in it

Cons: mostly the rear end if your needing a heavy hauler go for the F-350  looks the same but much tougher rear axle

Very Wonderful For Off Roading And Whatever You Throw At It. — Very easy to find parts. Were ever you drive this truck will never let you down and get you through anything anywere.

Pros: Easy and cheap to fix up and find parts. Smooth driving and get towing power.

Cons: For this year and if its not kept in a garage it will have rust. Very hard to find one with out it.
