A few years ago I was looking to buy a truck. I didn’t want a brand new truck or even a late-model one. I wanted an older Ford truck somewhere from the mid to upper 70’s. I like the classic look of those trucks. I had one before, a royal blue 77 model, and I always wanted another one. The only thing is where do you go to find a truck like that?
You look, and look, and look some more. You keep your eyes open everywhere you go until you find what you’re looking for. And that’s what I did. I began to see those type trucks everywhere I went, sitting in someone’s drive way, or in their back yard, in a parking lot, or driving down the road. And occasionally I would find one sitting with a for sale sign asking for way too much money.
Then finally I found my truck at a friend’s auto shop. I had seen it there before, but he had plans to keep it for himself. Until finally one day I stop by his place and he decided to make me a deal. It was a good deal and the truck was exactly what I was looking for, a sky blue 78 model.
