I’ve been driving this truck for 18 years. I purchased it from Loris Ford in South Carolina in October of 1995. At the time my Dad was disgnosed with multiple myloma (a rare bone cancer). I drove from the Dothan Community of Tabor City, North Carolina to McLeod Regional Hospital in Florence, SC for 8 months, everday, sometimes twice. Dad is still loved and missed. I felt secure while driving; it never crossed my mind of my truck letting me down. I’ve had a few repairs (clutch, rear end, belts and alternator). And we all know oil changes are essential. The current mileage on October 12, 2013 is 448,438. I still get excellent gas mileage. I get lots of compliments and offers. My truck is part of me and I love it.
