Thieving scumbags. If you have it, they'll take it and blame you for letting them do it.......




And small euro-trucks might not be command respect in outback or be big enough for the 'states, but for commercial work in the UK, they are cheap and work well. The only problem is that £6 a gallon diesel might just kill them off....

Yes, that qualifies!

Thanks for posting. Keep an eye on it, It would be tough to replace with current choices.

If diesel, 5spd and local I would trade/pay your price...

Enjoy it!

My daily transport since 1999!

And NO electronics, which is why the Pikeys are always wanting to to steal it to sell in Africa!

I'd love to have one, but we can't be trusted with certain bumpers, lighting, or emissions systems.

Easier to park, cheaper to run-- what's not to respect?

For us that like Classic Trucks, which is the one you'd want to have most?


I own a '55 Ford, but my eye is on a 1969 Ford Ranger

Kinda depends on what you want to do with it. I have a '65 F100. Anything 1960s on is roomier, better riding and usually more powerful than the 50s and older trucks, so they make better drivers. You'll get more attention with the older, fat fender trucks though.

I do get a lot of attention when I take the 55 around. People will chase me just to say "Nice truck."

I'm thinking more practical for my next classic. I have a Chevy S10 for normal use (I ride the bike most days but sometimes. need to move things or go on a date with bad weather). I could sell the S10 and F100, replace them with a cheaper 60's model, and buy more gear for the bike.

That happened with a bit of regularity on my '00 TRD Tacoma 4wd after some miles got on it....fairly common. Check the gas cap.

I was ignoring it until I could get a reader - it seems an OBDII reader won't work on the '92, and then the other day I noticed it was no longer lit.

believe me, they'd work plenty well here in the States too. Not everybody needs to tow a 3 axle goose-neck. Plenty of respect from me.
