Help! I have purchased a 1938 Ford Truck for sentimental reasons (death
in the family) and I have never changed a spark plug. I am looking for
information (especially things like technical manuals) to help me begin
the process of finishing the restoration. I have found that the few
truck enthusiasts I have contacted on the Web have been very helpful!
Thought I would give your digest a try! Maybe your readers could point
me in the right direction???

Thanks -

Hello everybody, Im trying to decide on what type of seats to install in
my 55 F100, bucket or bench. any help would be appreciated. thanks
Ken 55F100 Charlotte N.C.

ken, having a child and a wife that both like to cruise i opted for the
split bench. on my 59 i lucked out a happened to be at the yard when they
brought in a totaled out 54 f. it had a split bench like the ones they sell
at custom shops for $600. scored 'em for $40. they have an armrest in the
middle that makes for psuedo buckets or raise it up and 3 people can ride.
for my 58 i have purchased a set of 1987 caddy fleetwood broughm leather
seats that are again a split bench but 6 way power and look like a pillow
top mattress. my console will be on the ceiling. i have to tell you up front
that my butt's pretty old and worn and i go for the comfort. i have owned
many buckets in the past and they have many late model buckets that are
probably just as comfortable. another trouble with buckets is my best girl
can't sit next to me when we cruise.

I hope to attend Pigeon Forge in May for the first time; any general
info as to good deals on motels or any other related info would be
greatly appreciated by me, and maybe other first timers.

I kind of vote for buckets; this will stimulate your imagination to make
a neat console, plus if you ever install a floor shifter what could be
better?

Not to add more to our already large amount of mail but...... I really am also
anxious to get some info... you know the wife is going to go too.... want it
to be a great expierience for her too..... and really don't want to get stuck
with not knowing the good hookup on a hotel... for me I would just as soon
soon sleep under the stars if I had too..... but...... well you know ......

Looking forward to it..... I hope we are trying to plan some sort of parking
arrangement for our group ??

Ken,
Got any kids? Do you like a wife or girlfriend at your side? In other words
I go with benches for "practicality" and more of a sense of an "old" truck.
If I was driving in it alone I'd go with the custom, less fatigue
bucket/console/shifter scenario.

Subject: Pigeon Forge F100 Nationals info

This message is a reply to a message originally on the 1960 and
older list. I've forwarded it to all the lists as it may be of
interest to many members.

F100 Nationals In May, Pegion Forge, TN. Show info on web site.
Ford Truck Enthusiasts will have a booth there....

The event guide on the web site has a link to Pigeon Forge
tourism information if you want to get a jump start on our
research. We hope to have flight/hotel information soon. Nearest
airport is at least 100 miles away so for some people it may be
worth driving the entire way as you'd have to get a rental car
if you flew. I might set up a "ride exchange" classifieds page so
members can hook up with each other to save on costs.

I've had several people email me who are anxious for information.
Don't worry! We're anxious too and we WILL get you information
ASAP (this weekend). The sooner reservations are made, the better.

As to parking... are you kidding? The entire town is packed...
and lined with thousands of trucks every where you look! There
is no way to reserve parking. Heck, we're having a hard enough
time finding a picnic site! We don't know our booth location
yet, when we find out we'll let everyone know.

The show itself will be easy to spot. Its an outdoor truck show
with a bunch of vendors plus an indoor vendor section. You pay a
few bucks to get it (its not expensive at all) and you have a blast.
Every kind of Ford truck under the sun is there... from concourse
trailer queens to custom slammed low-riders. Many deals to be
found for parts hunters too.

Lastly, Pigeon Forge is a blast. Tons of things to do as it is
the second busiest tourist town next to Las Vegas... pretty
incredible considering it's such a small town. Dollywood amusement
park, helicopter rides, water slides, museums (including an
antique auto museum), free fall simulator, first class restaurants
(in nearby Gatlenburg), fishing, hiking, waterfalls, outlet
centers, malls, cart races... the list goes on.........
