Yeah, George's video looks to have a 71 F250 camper special in there.

While I'm not a fan, Rascal Flatts' video What Hurts the Most has a rusted out late 60s F250 that the boyfriend somehow barrelrolls down a straight flat road.

New cutie duo (cept for one with a nose ring, not my style) The Wreckers drive around a 76 or 77 F150 in the new video Leave the Pieces

Oh, and yes Terri Clark is smokin hot...

In the new classic trucks( not sure if it was CCT) mag has a article that seems to have the feel of "look at these cool trucks that ford also made" a bunch of people have been upset that they are covering our years now. It features a step-side. I only glanced at the article. I'm about to go read it.

the article basically chronicles this guys search for a bumpside. He seems to be under the impression that all of these are in the north east :lol: . He also seems to have turned down some because they are longbeds. I love my longbed. I can think of several occations where nothing but my longbed would do. What is so undesirable about longbeds?

Longbed/Shortbed is mostly personal preference. As my truck will never again be a work truck, I prefer the shortbed. In my opinion the shortbed has a sportier look to it.

think it has to due with what purpose we have them for too....a work truck guy is less likely to seek a new grille or paint code than a restorer. Many seem to be crushed near large cities like the east has. In texas we are fairly spread out, and there are area's where scrap yards really don't exist. I'm thinking mostly around Brady, but there are other areas too. you can't get parts cause they are all still running.

I guess it is the thrill of the hunt that makes it enjoyable for me. If there were more it would be easier to find parts. "And we all know easy to find parts are no fun.", says John in a sarcastic tone.

That's what I keep telling myself anyway. :lol:

I've seen only one other in my area here in the Northeast. My local junkyard says he wouldn't keep one around because its too old.

ARGGGGG!!!!!! Maybe you can work something out with him. He can call you before he scraps the steel!!!! You could runn down and get all the good parts first. Or at least the ones you need.
