Ford Trucks, Perfect for Outrunning Masked Serial Killers

By -

Jason Voorhees

On this Friday the 13th, we’re thinking that on a thriller-night, a Ford truck might just save you from the beast about to strike.

We learned a few things growing up on horror films. Don’t go into the woods. If you try to outrun the killer on foot, someone is going to trip. If you decide to get busy, you’re going to die. Oh, and when you fight the masked killer to the death, don’t be surprised when he shows up again, probably in next’s years sequel. But there is one lesson that always rings true: A solid Ford truck is your best chance of escaping Jason Voorhees.

We’ve seen this repeated in many of the Friday the 13th movies, a badass Ford pickup can keep you alive! These horror flicks feature some sweet, classic pickup trucks that manage to save our scared teens onscreen over and over again. Unless they hop out of the truck to run into the woods, trip while on foot, or decide to get busy.
