My first thought the first time I saw one of the new Ford pickups was that
they look too much like cars. The new pickups all have too many "comfort"
things in them. When I want a truck, I want one I'm not afraid to take down a
muddy road and cut firewood with. I don't want to worry about messing up the
interior or getting it muddy. I saw a guy the other day with a "monster
truck" slowing down to a crawl to go over a set of railroad tracks so his
truck wouldn't have to soak up the bumps. Make any sense to you?

yeh, keep wishing! the only big motors will be new style mod motors -
meaning the 10cyl.

but if we don't appreciatte the new trucks, then all we need to do is buy
old ones and make them what we want. don't cost more than a new truck to
do it either. i don't think i'll ever buy a new one again - 30 thou for a
work truck because other people think they are a status symbol...

Anyway,
I too am going to miss the 460, maybe Ford will see their mistake and
bring up another big cube engine.

Just my opinion

Amem to that! On that note, I'm still looking for a decent 1975ish
F100 or F250 body and frame (or complete truck) to replace my aging 75
F100...

The ideal truck for me would be something like: 75 F100-250 std cab
longbed, Custom trim level (as in no exterior trim!), 2WD, 390 4V, C6,
AC, PS, PDB. But all I need is the basic shell....I'll change the rest
to meet these criteria!

I'm located in Southern Maryland and distance is a factor...anybody
got anything within 2-4 hrs of Washington DC? Looking for 73-79 era
only, please. Have trailer and a 3/4 ton Suburban (egads!) to drag it
home!
