Muddy Monday Presented by Yokohama
This Ford pickup reminds us of the old adage, ‘If at first you don’t succeed…’
This week’s “Muddy Monday” video features a 1978 or 1979 Ford F-Series pickup taking on the pit at the “Blessing of the Trucks 2017” in Cadillac, Michigan. Unlike most of our featured mudding videos, this classic Ford gets stuck several times — only to bounce back and make a good “clean” run through the mud.
The video begins with the bronze Ford making a hard charge into the mud pit, where it immediately gets stuck. It gets stuck so quickly that it is comical, and it is even funnier when the passenger looks out to see what happened. You have to wonder if the driver asked, “What do you see?,” to which the passenger replied, “We are stuck in mud.”
In any case, the old Ford has to be pulled out backwards, but on the second run it makes it a few feet further into the mud. Once again, however, the run ends quickly. See what happens the third time!
William Edward Hickson popularized the proverb, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again,” and this late ’70s pickup shows the benefit of following such advice.
