I own a 1997 Ford F150 flair side pickup that has been my baby since purchase in March 1997. I am a small business owner as well as a hockey dad and the trunk has driven us from Virginia to Canada and many points in between. This weekend on a college hockey trip to see my son play the truck exceeded 416,000 miles. This is quite an accomplishment on the original engine without ANY engine work. I had in those miles the transmission redone once and the rear end done once, as I used to tow a 17ft boat for 10 years to a vacation spot in Pa. To hear Chevy owners brag about the miles they have driven makes me wonder why Ford does not show they same type of owners who love and cherish their trucks. I now am looking to have the engine replaced and start to fully restore the vehicle as I continue to drive it daily. When people ask about the best vehicle I have ever owned without a doubt I tell them a FORD F150.
THANK YOU FORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
