Hey guys, My names Brandon. Im 24, have a 5 year old son and a daughter about to be 4. I live in Yamhill county, Sheridan to be exact. I bought my first ford just shy of 5 years ago. I still have it today, Its a 1979 F150 short bed. It was all original inside when I bought it. It came with just shy of 8,000 dollars in reciepts. Rebuilt motor,tranny,transfer case,gears,axles,drivelines,breaks, intake,carb ect. My friend got it in trade from the owner, and i purchased it from him for $3300. Im still learning things about my truck, I in now way an expert on anything about this truck other than i can distinguish years, and i know some of the parts that are interchangeable. Anyways so here are a few photos of some of the fords ive owned, these 3 were all obtained in the first year i bought my 79'.

I traded a 300zx to a guy in from mcminnville for this, that i got for $50.00
It had 14k original miles, he had a rebuilt head, new accesories, the passenger door didnt open and there was rust inside the bed in the corner and the little bit on the fenders. My EX pulled some shady stuff and I had to sell it to my buddys uncle for 600 bucks... he lives in hillsboro with it.

i got this truck for free, from my neighbor who was moving. i traded it for the red and white ford below. It had a rebuilt 302, 4 speed, excellent shape but my leg got tired of the stiff clutch
1976

I dont remember the year but i believe it was either a 1993 or a 1995, i only had it for 3 hours before trading for the bronco

This was all original with 87k ended up selling it in tigard to a guy for 1000 bucks....

I promise my screen name has nothing to do with drugs. Im a volkswagen nut, ive owned more than i can count. So from 74'-84' the chassis code for the rabbit,and jetta was mk1(pronounced Mark 1) 85'-92' is a mk2, 93-99.5 mk3, 99.5 to 06' mk4 ect. Anyways at the time I changed my screen name in 03 on the VWvortex I had at one time owned vws from each "era", so i did a play on words and made a screen name. I pronounce it M-K-dubs because In the vw community they will eat you alive if you pronounce the chassis as a M-K-3 not a mark 3. sorry for the long speech just didnt want anyone thinking i was a pot dealer.

Hi, My name is Noel and I live in Medford. "BlueFizzy" refers to my motorcycle riding days, I had a blue Yamaha FZ1 for several years.

I just purchased a 2010 F250 CC Lariat PSD long bed 4x4 (No pictures yet). My wife and I are planning on purchasing a fifth wheel to travel with. This is my first Ford truck, but I have had several Mustangs in the past.

My other Ford is the wife's car, a Fusion Hybrid.
