    I Love It — Love the old style. Would like to get it completely redone. The simplicity of these older trucks is cool. I wish they would make them again. I don't need all the stuff on a truck. It drives like it's floating on air. That is hard to get used to. It's red.

    Pros: Love it

    Cons: Hard to keep running.  It's old.

    It Did The Job — It ran and was cheap...first high school vehicle. Virtually unbeatable in a straight line (ran equal to 1990 Ford Mustang GT). Cheap to maintain. Fun to drive, especially on snow/ice and on rainy days. Frequented gas stations often.

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

    Pros: The 390 under the hood

    Cons: The fuel mileage and the fact I don't own it anymore

    1973 F100 - Most Fun And Easiest Father/son Project! — Performance - I've put an Edelbrock Performer intake and 600 cfm carb on it along with MSD Ignition and a .500 lift Comp Cam. I installed a detroit TruTrac locker with 4.11 gears in the 9 inch. Build Quality - ... It's built FORD TOUGH! Appearance - It could use a paint job but I love the way my truck looks! I've put a set of 15" SS Cragar wheels with spinner caps. Cost of Ownership - It's a project truck. For fun. You don't put a cost on that, Fun Factor - I have a blast with it!

    Pros: Easy to work on.

    Cons: Not good for you if you're not a truck person.

    Extremely Dependable Workhorse — This truck is built to last. It hasn't recieved the best of care, but it still works. You could pull a tree out of the ground with it (and we have, it wasn't a little tree either). It's towed a sizeable travel trailer, a boat, other cars, a farm tractor, and pretty much anything you can imagine. It's not pretty, but it works great, even after 35 years.

    Pros: Incredibly dependable, lots and lots of torque, and there's absolutely zero danger of someone trying to steal it.

    Cons: Slightly sluggish, very few amenities

    A Tank — tons of power! fun to drive and can handle anything. I just wish i bought mine with a paint job other then rust.

    Pros: Its solid and powerful

    Cons: The power and strength do give it low mileage.
