My fathers first truck was a 1973 F-100. He purchased this truck new, two years before I was born. This truck has always been in the family. Dad and I spent many a day pulling our boat to fish in Eastern North Carolina, on the few days that he had off from work. It always got us there and back, sometimes we even robbed parts off the truck to get the boat motor to run, and then reinstall them and come home. I still have the truck and it runs great. I recently purchased my first Ford truck a 2010 F-150, hopefully that one will be around for my son as long as this one has been for me. As for my son, he can’t decide which one he likes better, I have the same problem. Dad passed away a few years back from cancer, but every time I drive it, it’s like he’s sitting in the passenger seat.
