I can't believe it!

We've been orphaned again.

I was changing the oil on my Expedition and came in to check FTE while the oil was draining out and was shocked to see that they thinned us from the herd.

I'm sure you can still get a "Visitors Pass"! Seriously,some guys will visit, many have more than one era of truck.

What a shame, the trucks have way too much in common with the earlier versions to be separated.

I see your point,Walston.I am actually of two minds on the subject:First,I really will miss some of those very knowledgeable and helpful guys over there,you can't replace that(.Perhaps we can invite them over here as "Guest Lecturers).On the other hand,we were a distinct minority there,our voices often being drowned out since our trucks are not as collectible/sought-after.

Since we didn't get much "air-play" within the old 48-60 Forum, I think that's why the Facebook group took off for 57-60.They have 1000 members,can you believe it?It's a great place for networking for Fridge parts and vehicles,with some dedicated,helpful people,including Bill Reil,who started it.I think he's a member here also.I personally hope that many of them will begin migrating here.We really need to attract the same caliber of experience as remains in our 48-56 Forum.People like me really need the help.

Thanks for moving some of your threads here.Every Fridge owner should look at yours,Mr4speedford,and Col.Flashman's galleries.


Steve.

Thanks Steve, I know that in the long run, this is probably best, the following of our trucks seem to be growing I think and maybe this will help.
