Started with an 03 Ranger, got the 65 Mustang and when a kid totaled my Ranger (220,000 miles) I bought an 03 F150 (final mileage was 320,000.) Bought a Focus and hated the car for 4 years and now am back in an F150. 2016 2.7 XLT 4x4 and I love driving it. I've taken it off road once and already making plans for upgrades over the next couple years. First thing is replacing the 4.2 radio though when budget allows. Wanted something that could tow the Olds and the Mustang if/when needed and was fun to drive.

The Olds has been in the family since it was new. My great grandmother bought it and it has 49,000 original miles. Does need some TLC because it mostly sat after she passed but I've put close to 5,000 on it since I got it. I call it the land barge because it just floats down the highway at 70 mph.

Hi back at ya! I grew up with 1960's "land barges" specifically the Pontiac style. Catalina's, Boneville's, Grand Prix's. First interstate drive was within 3 months of getting my liscense, Dec. drive from Milwaukee WI to Ceadar Rapids Iowa in dad's 1965 Catalina. Add to that my wife owned a 1968 Mustang notch-back 289 auto, when we met.
Fave fun with the F150! KM
