I just liked it 'cause the truck looked like mine, you just liked those because the truck was yours.

Ford shouldn't bring back the 300. The 300 is an oversized 4-cyl. I love my little 300 but it's underpowered.

Ford should bring back a 250 C.I. version with light duty work in mind. Basically the same thing as the 300 but with fuel economy and light duty work in mind. Think; A consistant 25MPG I6.

I loved my carbed 300 had gobs of torque and with an SROD tranny it'd frickin fly. Hate the EFI'd 300's though.....

Well thing about this. Ford had the 240 I6 in the 1960s and 1970s in the US and Australia. Ford Australia took the design and modernized it with DOHC, MPI, twin turbos, and direct injection, And it makes 415HP / 480 lb/ft torque. Compared to what Ford US did, stroke it to 300ci, put EFI on it, relegate it to basic trucks, and then discontinue it. Ford Australia still makes the 240ci (now 4L) Inline 6 as the top engine in the Falcon. I want one....

Hey that reminds me. I saw a four wheel drive Ranchero the other day.

Unibody trucks don't do anything for me, sorry. I think the "Chubby" Avalanche is a real joke. All that money for a unibody pickup with a shorter, less useful bed and much more sun-eating plastic..?

What a friggin' joke. Give me something that twists in the middle, baby.
