Harrison

Harrison is a white 1997 F150 XLT 3 door extended cab who sports a 4.6L Triton V8. He has been in the family since he was new and we have put over 140k miles on him. Even though he has never been used commercially, we drove Harrison like we stole him, took him on many family trips across the west coast and even to Mexico once. He was also our personal Hockey equipment hauler we used to sit on the back of the bed and change into our hockey gear before every game. One day in the fog we had a accident and one of the horn chimes failed and Harrison now sounds like Herbie the love bug. He even helped our friends in need when they moved or other things that a normal car or other truck cannot handle. What I remember the most is when we first got him we were listening to “Fly away” by Lenny Kravitz on the radio which over the course of time became Harrison’s theme song. Throughout this summary I have mentioned the truck as a him or he, the reason being, Harrison is not just a truck or a car that has and still gives us exemplary service every time he is driven but he has become more than that. He has become family.
