Glad to see you back. Sorry to hear about your mom

I met up with a guy who had an 05 Ford F150 he bought brand new and was constantly dumping money into it to keep it on the road....he did use it as a work truck, but commented to me that they aren't built today as well as they were back in the days, to last.

That's crappy news Dak...sorry to hear it bud. You'll never forget but the pain will eventually diminish.

That's not good.

I like ragging on the new stuff as much as anybody, but honestly, I don't think it's a matter of one being better than the other, because I do like some of the more modern seats, I like what efi has to offer, etc. Instead, I think it's a matter of waaaaaaaay tighter tolerances, waaaaaaaay more widgets and overall just more stuff to go wrong on new rigs.

When I was shopping for a copier (just a quick analogy fellas, don't crucify me for comparing vehicles to copiers please ), the copier salesman told me the more simple, the better (for small office use, not one of those massive copiers) because the more gadgets you have, the more components you have, then the more that can go wrong with it in the future.

There is also something to say about being able to work on your own vehicle if you can for as much as you can without having to take it to a professional. When I first got the bump, a friend of mine helped me pull one of the valve covers off, fix a small hole in it (welded a piece of metal), put a new gasket, and put it back on, and drove off, all in under 15 minutes......wouldn't be able to do that even on my 2000 Durango.

I was in Red Deer today and saw this in my travels

I thought I would share

I talked with the owner from 100 ft away and invited him to this site to join up and tell us about it.

All I know is it was painted a modern colour scheme, is a Camper special with a 460 in it

Enjoy

Cool, what is that blue one in the drive way? :)
Am I wrong or is that a Ford 2+1/2 ton of some sort?
If so, what model years was that body/grill style?

If he shows up, I'll try not to pick on 'im too much
about being Canajian. ;)
