Brian, let's see some pictures of these projects.

I turn 64 in May. Mya left shoulder is shot and I'm right handed. I was never in a car accident, didn't play organized tackle football, don't remember ever seriously hurting that shoulder. Dr. says I need a replacement. My knees hurt, too much playing and coaching soccer I guess. I find it difficult to standup after being under the truck..... Maybe when I'm done mowing lawns and hauling mulch and brush with my F350, I'll sell it and buy a 55 or 57 chevy. But I probably could not afford it. My Dad would say, It's no fun getting old!

Before Marvin painted it? He gave me pictures they took showing before, during and after the paint job.

That's cool. My Dad bought a 48 8N new. It came with the Ford umbrella, and the saw along with plows, discs, harrows, etc. We cut a lot of firewood with that saw.

Yes. The pictures are the 53 and the 48. The 50 is mostly in pieces. I got the 50 in 1987. I finally found some widow maker replacements a couple years ago from Truckdog. That is when it became an active project. We started the motor a couple years ago after at least 22 years of not running. The 53 I found in Kansas. Road trip in a snow storm to get it. The 48 followed me home about a year ago, also in a snow storm. And a flat tire on my 96 f250 I was pulling the trailer with.

Ok... so I'm a city guy trying to catch up with you guys on this thread.
A little help with the non Texas farming vernacular ….

What is a 3 pt. Buzz Rig? Is it a log splitter? It looks dangerous...

Haying Time - I'm assuming it's time to Bale the hay & store it in the barn?
I've done that when visiting Iowa relatives.... I never itched so much in my life..
I liked the job of unloading the bales - not the stacking up in the barn bit.

Tom - You show (4) vehicles in your non Ford collection. A big Army truck & (3) other cars...
For the uninformed - what have you got there? Any story? I can't see that huge Army truck
just following you home on a trailer...

I'll just go back to my corner & watch.

Ben in Austin

That is a 1954 REO with 15,200 miles. Long story short ( I hope), I got my bobcat stuck in the creek. It got posted to Facebook. My brother saw it and said I needed that around the farm. I called the number and talked to the guy, he is in New Mexico and I am in Illinois. I said it looks good, but it is too far away. So he delivered it as part of the deal.

In my opening post one of my dream trucks is a sport go fast truck. The picture I have in my mind is a 92-96 F150 Lightning clone with either a 351 or 460 power plant. Kinda stumbled into this one...It's a love hate relationship already, I love it and my wife hates it LOL.

Bartered for some labor and took as payment and partially just to get it out of the way. Someone tried to steal it from a storage yard and the plow frame got caught up on a pole and gate. Ripped up some wiring and brake lines. It has good bones but isn't as clean as it looks. Yes I said plow frame, this truck came out of Pennsylvania and ended up in Florida. 1997 F250HD TTB 50 front, 10.25 Full float rear, limited slip 4.10 gears 460 auto. Manual hubs and transfer case. I'm quite undecided on what I want to do with it yet, swap to 2wd lower and shorten it with a 6.5' bed and build the lightning clone or just do a once over and move it down the road, time will tell.
