F 150 From Past To Present
FEB
24

I am a third generation Ford owner. I actually own 6 F series trucks presently. Two are F 250 and F 550 and the rest are all F 150s. I rode in one as a little boy right beside my grandpa; it still is all original and looks and runs as good as new. I also have the last (only one of dozens) F 150 my dad owned. They range from 1981 to 2011. I have bought and traded several in my years, and yes I have tried a couple of the competitors, but none can compare to Ford trucks! And I can also say a huge THANK YOU to Ford for being gutsy enough to work through tough economic times without taking any bail-out monies. In the picture I have are 8 F series trucks. There are two trucks pictured that belong to my brother in law and one of my employees. Pictured are a 1981, 89, 94, 2003, 204, 2005, 2010, and my brand new 2011.

I LOVE my truck!!!!!!! all of them!

Thanks for building a superior product.

Anthony Dennis I am impressed, I wish I could of kept my 86, 91,99, f-150, 04.08 f250+ f350 dulley diesels, I still have my 2011 f-150. dodge and chevy can talk all they want, but do you notice how much they copy ford, mirrows on chev,etc, dodge is trying to make thier truck look like a f-150. thanks Dennis ,Maryland

Brett D A very appropriate story after just having a discussion with a person on FB saying that Toyota builds a superior truck and that Ford trucks don't last. Boy has he got a lot to learn!

Tim What a great photo! I had the privilege to grow up riding in my dad's 63 Merc 4X4. I was tough as nails. It had a 223 straight 6. It couldn't spin a tire but it never got stuck. We hauled many a vehicle out of the mud and snow. My first truck was an '85 F150 and I now own a 2010 F150 and see perhaps a new 2012-13 in my future. Keep up the great work Ford . My wife's 2011 Mustang ain't too bad either.
