Our 54 F250 in True Blue Ford Trucks #15

If any of you subscribe to True Blue Ford Trucks magazine, or see it at the magazine stand, our 1954 F250 has an article in its current edition #15. On the front cover there is a picture of the truck in the top left corner and a article on page 12. I sent a picture and short description to put on the Readers Rides page. The magazine contacted me and said they wanted to do a article on the truck. I was pretty tickled to see the truck in a published magazine.

Congratulations on getting the truck in print. It's always cool to have the mag folks think you're worthy. I'll have to look for it.

I downloaded the on line edition of the magazine to try to copy for a family member, but it wouldn't let me copy, I am guessing copy write infringement or something?

Congrats on the article!!

Thats pretty cool that they took it from a "reader's rides" type article to actually doing a story on it. Good for you!

Ok, Chris 56, you did more in 5 minutes than I did one night in an hour. Was that just off the website or did you actually download the article? Do the magazines frown on reposting articles?

Chris, that is the edition of TruBlue that the jailbar grille coe is in, I tried to fax it last night, did your wife get it. If you can pull up cabledude's article then pull up page 30 and 31 to see the truck I'm talking about.

Ron,

Congratulations. I read the article twice. I also showed my wife the article. Im jealous you have a wife that can STILL drive a 4 speed manual. That's pretty cool!!! Your story of selling and getting it back is great as well.
