I looked for your car while I was there Aaron and didn't see it. But I wasn't looking too awful hard either lol. I looked around as we walked in the back row where all the cars are usually for sale. We only stayed for a few hours and couldn't stand the heat anymore! Heck, even several swap meet venders were leaving.

As soon as we walked in, we passed one guy that had a part I wanted. I said Ill buy it on the way out. Sure enough the guy had already packed up and left... Guess I didn't need it too bad lol

Evening guys.

Gave the old beast a bath - amazing what a little spray wax and good washing will do for an old truck:

I dig it too Bill!

Yeah these aren't by any means 'old trucks' but they are 'old enough to not be new'.
People in the 73-79 section are like "what does that make my truck?! REALLY OLD BODY STYLE?!"
I think my perspective is people are divided into two or three categories:
1) Majority - Truck got old and out of date enough that they justified or wanted to buy newer.
2) minority - They love these trucks for whatever wacked out reason
3) smaller minority - these trucks are readily available and cheap and are known to get the job done.

Ideally, my favorite project truck would be a '73 Highboy. But those are getting REALLY hard to find. But I do love the mid-90's body style (the OBS look) and my 10th generation (the 98) F150 grew on me. Besides, I've got plans for it that will make it stand out from the rest
