Trucks only, guys. And ANCFlyer, you've posted your picture of your truck about 30 times. We all know what it looks like.

1988 Ford F-150, 5.0 V8 (slow, though), 129,000 miles, 2WD, still decent AC (after 2 cans of freon were added last month).

Here, all the windows on the cap are open. Mom says that the cap manufacturer thought she was nuts when she told them what she wanted, but she got exactly what she ordered. Big opening panels on the side for easy access, small rear panels with screens for ventilation if you sleep in the back of the truck, locks on all the windows, and a frame on top for the canoe.

Btw, the windows on the right are of the duplex where I live.


Note that the seat hasn't held up that well, with Dad being the daily driver, and it's wearing pretty badly. Note my Camry's front floormats, genuine Toyota items. They fit nicely over the rubber mats. It's interesting to think about how this truck was actually luxurious in 1988: it's hard to imagine a time when trucks didn't have power windows or locks, or a tach (this truck only has 2 speakers). And ABS only for the rear wheels.


Our ultimate trip in the truck was in 1991. I was 7, and my sister was 9. We drove from Huntsville, Alabama up to Oshkosh, Wisconsin for the 1991 EAA Oshkosh, which was my first. My sister and I slept in the back of the truck on cots, since at the time my parents only had a two-person A-frame tent (it ain't Oshkosh if you don't camp out). Then, after that week, we headed over to Hartford, Connecticut, to visit Dad's side of the family. After several days there, we drove home. It was a LONG way, especially since the rear of the Supercab really didn't have enough legroom, even for kids. But it held more stuff than our other car at the time, the 85 Toyota Cressida wagon.

Ok, here's a different one of the beastie after a long day hauling the camper around Alaska. It needs a bath, but it's parked on Ressurection Bay, so it can't be tooo bad . . . dang I hate a dirty vehicle.

Now this is a REAL Truck...the new Volvo. Big classic look, but with the Volvo aerodynamics! My friend thats a rig driver is getting one of these. Im so jealous!

These may not be trucks...but they certainly drive "trucky". And I drive them more than my own car. LOL

A 45ft long Mercedes S class. Handles just like one too.


And my fave.


I think my diesel is bigger than ANCs BAFDT! Powerstrokes are fun though...you can really "blast" people in convertibles! Nothing like a dose of diesel smoke to let someone know they did something silly!  flamed 

Who else drives BAFDTs? They seem to be quite popular.

I don't have a 'need' for truck considering I am one those damn big city liberals but IF I did have a need I'd certainly get a 1992-1997 Ford F-350 crew cab with the 7.3 liter V8 diesel motor, 4Wheel-drive, duallies and campershell.

If or when I ever move to northern Minnesota or eastern Canada, that would be my truck.


For small/midsize, my favorite truck would be the 1992-1996 Dodge Dakota extra cab $WD with the 318cu" V8 engine.
Nice little powerful truck.

Here's mine... I've had it from new (May 1997) and have around 92k miles on it now. It was my daily driver up until Jan of this year when I bought the Mazda6. Now it's been relegated to a work truck and a camping/4wheeling truck. I also have a '72 GMC Fleetside but I don't have any pictures of it available online right now.

Gah, you never get it right, ANCFlyer. We would like to see your travel trailer, too. If I had a digital picture of it, I'd post one of the truck towing our former 16 ft Sunbird speedboat.

Superfly, those Dakotas looked like crap (although they were a minor improvement on their predecessors). At least the generation after that was well-proportioned. Now they're back to looking ugly again.

No pic yet (delivery next week - hopefully), but to address BAxman's "What is the obsession with trucks in the States?", I'll only offer that sometimes they are helpful. Wifey's 300C scrapes a teeny bit going up our (basically box-bladed creek bed driveway) and my old Detroiter "city truck" S-10 is worthless for needed grunt, so I passed my depo on new Corvette (which I can't drive up there yet anyway) for a new 4WD Chevy reg cab long bed HD work truck.

These comments address that there are reasons for trucks.

For some of you, who in seeming perpetuity in this forum, scream about soccer moms and usefullness-less of trucks and SUVs because of "keeping up with the Jones's" and "mee-too-isms", I find hypocracy (how many negative threads are ther devoted to Ferraris, Maseratis, etc.?).

Sorry I'm on a rant, but it's almost tearfully boring. There are often very good reasons for wanting/needing/having a truck (in the STATES where we actually have enough land to drive around on!). Think about it, but don't be so knee-jerk as to judge everybody else within your (perhaps) picayunne envelope. Regards..Jack

I happen to like the boxy look of the 1992-1996 generation Dodge Dakotas.
Although I am a Ford loyalist, the Ranger doesn't offer a V8 and I just don't like the rounded look on trucks.
However, when it comes to full-sized trucks, nothing beats a Ford.
