Yep, they'll be showing up as soon as this site gets going. I suspect it will grow exponentially.

I'm thinking that if they are a guy, and their truck is old, that they are under them working on them.

I just found a 66 F100 sitting behind a fuel cardlock station, looks in good shape. I'm trying to find the owner to see if I can buy it, I miss having an old truck.

I have a old truck but I'm still young. hahah Does that still count? Older trucks is the way to go, new ones aren't as good and never will be.

Well I'm not that old but I've got an old truck. Can I still join the fun :) The truck was my grandfathers and it got passed down to my father after he died and I've basically got it now. I've included 3 photos. One of how it was about 22 years ago and 2 of it as of 2-3 years ago lol. Also for any of you out there wonder.. Yes there is a story behind the Orange -.-' xD

Some of you will notice the ranger grille lol even though its not a ranger it was still a replacement at the time being. haha. I have way more images that I collected over the course of me and my fathers short lived restoration of the old beast if anyone wants to see them. :)

Looks like a good start on a truck.
I do have a questin on a car in you sig, you list a 87 Bird turbo 2.5, I had 2 matching 85 turbo coupes and they were 2.3 engines, did Ford jump up to 2.5 when they add the intercooler? Did you put on a turbo from a 2010 SHO?

My truck is 7 years 11 months older than me. I guess that counts. I also have an 80 Fairmont wagon, That's why I'm here. Rich

A 66, A little dark, but still a 66. Right now I have 2 66 F100's, one is a 2wd, I'm holding it for my son and my F100 4x4.
I'm 12 years old than them.

Wow, I just saw the date at the bottom. Hard to believe I've had her this long. Every time I fire her up, she still makes the sweetest music through her headers and glasspacks, and she will still spit her U-joints and pressure plate bolts when I make her angry. Whoever said old trucks have alot of upkeep is dead wrong in my opinion. I've only had to replace a ballast resistor and change the oil (u-joints, spider gears and pressure plate bolts were pure abuse and wouldn't happen if it weren't so fun) since I paid $750 3 1/2 years ago. She was kinda mangled in the face, but in the bed was a '65 fender and grille, new looking C6 with convertor half dozen headlight bezels and other asst'd stuff. The rest of the sheetmetal was not so bad I couldn't straighten it out. I also added wheels and tires I had collecting dust. Here's a fresher pic from the south end of the farm. She's the pic whore, not me,. Rich
