I've had my truck for 10 years now, and modified it just enough I guess it qualifies as a toy. Faster than a lot of cars, too.



And if 4 wheels qualifies, I have a trailer load of these things

Ever heard the term "there's some freak in that geek"? Well, that definitely applies here. One of 50 T5M's imported in 98, and apparently the ONLY one in this color. Oh, it's not as stock as it looks.. ;) Sadly, I wound up using it as a daily driver for the family for the last year, so she's gotten kinda dirty. I've got another commuter car coming, and the family has a new minivan, so she can go back in the garage. She's never seen snow, and now she's covered in it..

Posted in the cool trucks thread a while back, but here it is again. I need to do some more body work on it, but I just don't have the time or cash right now.

I'll throw another old Ford in. Mostly toy but it gets used for lumber runs once and a while. Just put in a new 410 with 9.5:1 flat tops. It only runs on 92 but the torque is worth it.

No, but that's very cool, and oddly similar to mine. I do keep mine in Northern Wisconsin, though it's Minnesota titled.
The one in your photo has an original tailgate - mine has a NOS tailgate from a 1972 or so truck. Where in Wisconsin did you see that truck?

Decent service, check the mechanicals and a good clean.
You will be tempted to overdo the "light restore" and erase your grandfather's "footprint" in the process.

The vehicle is beautifull as it stands.
