I love my old ford. I can do ANYTHING without touching the body/frame. Any problem I have can be fixed in the driveway....as my brother and I have done. You don't need anything fancy, just some regular old hand tools. A carefully used impact wrench makes some things go quicker, just don't go nuts like some do.

I wonder what kind of MPG you would get from one of these trucks if we let Aerohead and Bondo loose on it with a couple large for materials?

BTW, my Ford is fairly easy to work on. All the maintenance items on the top front of the engine.

If they want to find out, they are welcome to come over for a visit! They can add whatever they want. Maybe we could set a record.... I really have not modified it that much at all.......yet. I still need a grille block, belly pan, wheel covers, bed cover, wheel skirts, boat tail, kill switch, smaller mirrors, and warm air intake.
