I didn't know you had a '78.
hmmmmm... I've never seen you 'round the dent forum...
I'm around from time to time. I just joined the FTE a few months ago. I first saw your awesome ride on a random post somewhere on the forum. Living here in the States, I would loooove to have an Aussie F-150 for the RHD factor alone.

They may look cool to a teenager born in the 1990's, but to me, who was born during WWII and likes things left as original, the stripes look fugly as hell.
I'm trying to say, How do you say you like things as original? When they are original...

You have said this over & over again, you don't need to rub it in, your not impressing or appeasing me.
We all know your the only who has 35 years experience, But, when it comes down to it, why does it matter, and who cares, that doesn't make you any better than me or anyone else.
tScott77, I'm sorry for hijacking your thread.
That's not my truck, I wish it was! It's my friend's f100racing truck.

Yeah, that's a big oops on my part. I just noticed that you location is in Cali. No worries on the threadjack. Did you say that you were born on Elvis' 17th death anniversary? I was born the same year that he died!

I know the stripes aren't original to any '61-'72 Ford truck.
I was saying they are original to '73-'79 Trucks.
I like the '73-'79 Explorer Stripes!
Yes the letter e is a vowel, and is the most used letter in the English alphabet.
I am also on a HP laptop, and have been for several years.
Mine must be a better more expensive model, or I take care of my stuff, and don't set 300 pounds of Ford Catalogs on top of everything.

That's awesome!!! I think we should all celebrate the multi-generational obsession for the same type of vehicle(it sounds corny, I know)! I dig the fact that I can log onto a site where we can find seasoned veterans, and teen aged people who are legions apart on most levels, but can find a common interest in one thing.

NumberDummy, I had the same thing happen with my ThinkPad, but it was the letter "N". I had to wait a week for the new used one to show up from eBay. I like to help out where I can so just cut and paste these as you need them: eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeee

I paid $1800.00 for this H-P Pavilion (model dv9005us) Entertainment Notebook PC three years ago. It was on sale at Circuit City, marked down from $2100.00

I don't pile anything on top of it, don't take it with me when I travel.

The problem is...as you well know (since we've met), is that I'm sasquatched sized and have ham hands.

I strike the keys with so much force, that both the E and the A keys plastic buttons have popped off.

Now that you know all the causes and effects, have a nice day.

Well, now that we have had a bit of fun, I would like to again say how much I enjoy this site and the loads of knowledge that I have gotten from its many members. You fellas don't play too hard...just remember we all share one common thing...and that thing is our color...Ford Blue!

Happy New Year y'all!!! See you in 2010!

That is quite an impressive list of Ford trucks there, NumberDummy.

Which was your favorite?
Which was you least favorite?
And why?
Which one do you think looked the best, and then which one rode the best?
The most reliable?
