Not me, I'll probably never own another Ford again.

But you ride KTM's, so we all know your opinion is skewed.

To each his own my man. I really prefer two wheels anyway and don't currently own a truck just two SUV's. They keep me from buying too many bikes too cuz I can't haul them so I just keep the trusty ol WR.

Hmmm so if I get rid of the pick up, I'll only end up with 1 bike????? Think I'll keep the pick up and 6 bikes.

had a 71 F100, good truck

had an 81 F100, good truck too

bother were bought used and cheap ( under $1000 each)

both served me well for a number of years with only basic maintenance

I think all of the newer stuff is overly complex though, Id never own a newer Ford.

My father has a 94 F150, its a POS, easily the worst performing, worst handeling, and thirstiest of any full sized vehicles we have ever owned..

I had a 84 F-150, 88 F-250, 89 FS Bronco, '00 F-250, and '04 F 150. The Bronco was a POS, the 04 F 150 was a POS. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. No 3rd chances.

no, Gus has to get that one...

But Albie could probably hit a golf ball to it from his new pad.

Plenty of duplex rentals with garage along Wedington. Of course traffic gets a little congested.

Tell you what I'll just sell you my place with moto shed and unloading dock already built. I can put up some fence and get you a few goats so no mowing is required. Then you can count on Doc stopping by to visit ya too.
