With all of the car talk, it's my turn to chime in and brag.
I own a 1991 Ford F-350 4X4 with the 7.3 Liter Diesel engine. I have the 6 passenger crew cab with duallys.
Our family runs a hardware store (been in the family for over 70 years) and we often use the truck for deliveries to our loyal customers.
I have almost 187,000 miles on it and all I've ever had to replace is brakes and tires. Everything is original (engine, trans, alt, starter, water pump, radiator). It has survived 13 Long Island winters and doesn't have ANY rust at all.
Even the original cassette deck works perfect.
I've pulled several Chevys out of ditches and towed a few Dodges and Nissans to the repair shop. We have a boat and camper we take upstate New York from time to time.
This truck is simply amazing. It's no wonder I see more Fords in commercial service than Chevy and Dodge.
Mines looks just like this one but is a brown & white two-tone.
