I've been told that Folks who buy Mustangs tend to be mostly former or current Truck owners. So I got to wondering how many of my fellow Bullittheads traded in or still own a Truck.

Extra credit of course for Ford F-Series Trucks.

I'll start -

I've still got a 2001 F-50 XLT Supercrew 4x4.



Before that I owned this Cowboy Cadillac.



I've owned alot of trucks & small pick-ups over the years but these are the only ones I've got pictures of..

Anyone else?

I bought my 1994 Ford Bronco XLT in '94 and still own it. Only 68,000 original miles on it. I keep it well maintained and clean inside and out. Most comfortable and best off-roader I've owned. Has towing package, 5.8L motor.

However, I do suffer 'CROSSOVER' shock when I drive it now after driving so much in the Bullitt!:lol:

Wow Zeke! My old F150 XL short bed was a 94 too. While all Broncos are cool. I've always liked the early 90's body style the best.

By 94 had one of those 4.9L inline 6 cyls engines - IMHO probably one of Fords best engines ever! Only a 150hp but it had about 280 ft/lbs of torque.

Speaking of engines - my Supercrew has the 5.4L V8 has over 122K on the clock. While it looks pretty much stock from the outside - its got lots of performance upgrades. Under pulleys, Magnaflow Cat-back, K&N FIPK intake and a Hypertech Power programmer. In fact one of my favorite things to do is smoke all those posers in those pretty boy jacked up to the sky 4x4s that've probably never seen anything but paved roads their whole life.

Well, I traded an '03 Dodge Dakota reg cab in for 2445. Had the 4.7l V8, 5 speed, 3.55's in the rear. Almost as fast as the B.

This was my first vehicle. 88 F150, was my grandpas and my grandma gave it to me after it passed away. Led a short life. Someone ran into the back of me at 70mph.



After that I picked up this 93 F150. I did LOT of stuff to it over the years I had it. But I sold it before we moved accross country as it would never pass PA emissions. We were also short on money so it helped and I knew it would take a few grand to get the truck up to where I wanted it. Truck was still VERY VERY solid though. I miss it.

Yes it is very nice, my wife likes it and drives it as much as i do, probably more.
It does get stored for the winter months up here. I have used it as a tow vehicle to pull the B to the track and it does very well.

What's not to love about Ford trucks!

I used to own a 1977 F150 inline 6 four speed (1st gear='Granny'). That truck would go places generally reserved for 4x4s. It was a no frills, basic pickup with standard AM radio, basic white. All I could afford at the time, but I loved the truck. Back in the early, mid 80's, 1977-1979 Ford pickups were being stolen at a phenomenal rate in border areas. Trucks were being taken at night, generally, and were across the border by the time the owner woke up to find them missing. The trucks were being taken to Nicaragua for use during that conflict.

Why Ford F series trucks? Two reasons (we were told during our briefings [intel from government sources]): 1) Ford parts were easier to obtain, 2) Ford trucks were rugged and more reliable.

I had prior to the Bullit, and still have, my 1986 F350 diesel 4x4....last of the factory 'Hi-boy'. Added on a Banks turbo. However....I am in the process of retiring it to a friend of mine, who plans to use it as a field truck on his farm.
I also own a 1998 Dodge W350 diesel dualie 4x4 extended cab...which is a beast.
Replaced the factory turbine with a Banks setup....that diesel can climb telephone poles with its low end grunt, but at 30lbs boost it will scream down the road....all the while getting 20mpg (unloaded)!

As for the theory about Mustang owners also being truck owners...well...heck...that's kind of a no brainer.....
Everyone knows you keep a Clydsdale to haul the plow, but you don't want to ride it in your Sunday-go-to-town clothes...you'd never impress the chicks that way! So, you always keep a fine stallion in the stable to race around on.....
(one tip though....if you can find the chick who loves to ride around on both your steeds....you know you have a catch!)

Thats why I'm still single I guess.

Last girl I dated didn't like the Stang but loved the truck, while another liked the Bullitt but didn't like trucks. Said trucks were way too hick for her tastes.

Told the last one "that's ok - lets call it even, because guys who wear Boots & Jeans shouldn't date gals in capri pants who own yappy toy Poodles". ;)

LOL!!!

Yup...I hear ya. I was with one gal who absolutely refused to be seen in the F350, and, also considered my ownership of the stang to be nothing more than a mid-life issue. Needless to say, we are no longer together....oil and water.
Don't worry though....the right one is out there.
My love is a long time hotrod girl (although a bowtie hottie...but I forgive her),
and has owned both Camaro's and a Vette in her day. So, she loves the Bullitt, and, refused to let me sell 3230 in the days I was frustrated with the blown engine, and talked me out of dumping the stang. On the other hand, when she saw my old beat up work horse F350, she fell in love with it! Needless to say, we shared many a wonderful outing in the truck in our dating days. Yup...I had found a keeper!

Add another F150 owner. 2004 work truck w/Extended cab, 8' ft bed. Wife uses it mostly when hauling stuff for her horses and pulling a horse trailer. For anyone familar with the "Crazy Horse" decal, this truck has a "Crazy Horse" decal the whole length of the bed. I will try to post a picture if I can. Very unique looking truck, but perfect for pulling the horse trailer or going to horse shows.
