An old Ford truck that has seen better days.

Growing up in the mid-west one was generally of two camps when it came to trucks.  Your choices were Chevy or Ford.  There were a few outcasts who would claim Dodge but they knew their place. 🙂

My family was in the Chevy camp.  So that meant Chevys were better than Fords.  We used to joke that Ford stood for Found On Road Dead or Freaking Old Rebuilt Dodge.  Of course the Ford people would counter with First On Race Day.  Ahh good times back then.

I always enjoy coming across old vehicles like this.  It makes me wonder who the people were that owned and operated it and what kind of life they had.  I’m guessing this one was used quite routinely on the farm.

Until next time…
