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

Pros: good dependable truck

Cons: it's an old truck

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 : )

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: almost everything besides gas mileage

Cons: bad gas mileage

Great Work/fun Loving Truck, Durable, Never Lets You Down. — 1986 F150, inline six, 3 speed, 2WD. Tough as nails truck, flexible, hard working, fun to drive. Body starts to rust in all the typical Ford places, does ride like a grain truck when it gets really cold, but always starts even at -50c. Didn't really expect sports car speed, especially with the inline, but it can move, tons of low-end torque. Mileage is 4.8 km/L (14.6 mpg for the Americans), not bad for 280,372km truck. Durable as hell, been hit six times and its still rolling strait, can't say the same for the cars that hit me. lol Love the look of it, like a Panzer tank on wheels. Recommend it highly.

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

Pros: Strong, durable, low-end torque, hard to kill.

Cons: Mileage not great, prone to rust, hard to find parts.

I Hated It — I really did not like this truck. it was slow and the old inline six did not give it much power. It really could not haul anything. Body was rusted all out and it was losing ground fast. Although it was free.

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

Pros: None

Cons: No power

Once You Get The Engine Rebuilt — For an old truck, it do and almost out perform some of the new ones. Build quality is spot on, solid. Fun factor for me is that it's a four speed transmission and I never use 1st gear. Cost of ownership less than a $1000.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: American Power

Cons: It's old and don't start when it's cold

Pros: Dad bought it
