I have always been a lover of Ford trucks.
When my dad was a teenager, he had a Ford truck.
That truck stayed on our property for 30 years and then my dad passed that truck down to me. My dad bought a brand new 1999 7.3 turbo diesel. The F250 Super Duty was the top in its class and capable of towing extremely heavy weights. The 7.3 turbo diesel was such a monster that it was discontinued less than 10 years later. I ended up with the turbo diesel truck when my dad no longer needed it on the farm. The truck needed a new turbos pedestal, so I took it to a special Performance Shop to have the work done. I didn’t want to take the truck to any old place. It’s not just any old truck. I really wanted to find a performance shop that handled diesel cars and trucks specifically. I had to drive to the next city, but I was happy to find a performance and automobile custom shop that had five star reviews and hundreds of satisfied customers. The whole parking lot was filled with f-250s and all of them were at least 20 years old. Pulling into the parking lot and seeing all of those trucks lined up for service certainly made me feel a lot better about my decision to take my truck to the performance shop. The guys had my truck for a week. I didn’t mind them keeping it for a while, because I have a car at home that I can drive too.
