Ben Haines: I am a senior in high school, I dont have much to say except FORDS ARE THE BEST. I have owed at least one truck of all makes, and I can honestly say that the Fords out-drive and out-perform all the others. I will only list the Fords that I have previously owned. And they are as follows:

1965 Ford F100 Pickup-I kick myself everytime I think about selling this truck, it had a 360 engine with a 4-speed standard. The truck was completely in mint condition, engine was balanced and blueprinted. Even still had the original AM stereo in it. I am currently triing to purchase truck back from owner.

1969 Ford F100 Pickup-This truck had a 390 mated to a 4-speed manual tranny w/granny gear. This truck was set up for racing, could easily leave a 70 foot burn-out, and top speed reached was around 140, couldnt tell for sure because the speedo topped out at 100. This truck was a driver.

1969 Ford F100 Pickup 4x4-This truck I would never have gotten rid of except for my dad. My dad wanted a camp trailer, so he traded my truck for one. This truck had a 390 mated to a 4-speed manual as well, but this one was nicknamed "THE BEAST", I can honestly say that I never found a place that truck wouldnt go, and usually, the chevys and dodges wouldnt make it.

1972 Ford F100 Pickup 4x4-This truck was completly stock, but had some steering problems, it was still an awsome 4x4, but I just didnt trust it because the steering box had been okie-rigged on, so I parked it and bought my baby now:

Nicknamed "THE POLAR BEAR OF DARKNESS" by my friends because of the lift and gloss black paint, or "BLACKBEAR" by me, its a 1970 Ford F100 Pickup 4x4-this truck had a few problems with it when I purchased it, for starters, the engine was out of some unknown Ford car, had a closed knuckle front axle, and a really, really low gear ratio, plus some other stuff little stuff. So to fix all these problems, I took the engine, tranny, and front and rear axles out of my 72 and replaced the ones on my 70. Now the truck has a 360 engine mated to a 4-speed manual tranny w/granny gear, with a stock two speed transfer-case, now has a ball-jointed front axle, and a 5" lift with 33x12.5x15 BFG Mud Terrain Tires. Now that I have owned this truck, I now know the meaning of unstoppable. I am planning to paint my baby, it is going to be Blue striping into white.

Hello all. I'm also new to this forum. Drive an AUII sportsman (2001). Used to drive an NA sportsman 1991. Love my fairlanes, what can I say? So glad I found this place. Now when I have a sook or want to boast about my ford I have found sympathetic ears (I hope).
Champ.
