    My son just recently purchased a 2005 F150 for $1000. Needs a little body work and only has 95K miles. A few pics....

    Interior looks pretty clean and it runs good. Underneath looks solid also. Books at 6K and my son plans to use it around town until he goes to college when he will sell it to invest in a vehicle with better avg MPG. Proud of my son Carter for saving up the money to buy his first vehicle at 15. Just turned 16 and he has a pretty good head on his shoulders. They grow up fast!

    F150's are too light for me. I require a 1 ton so I still have my pristine 1997 F350 with a Banks equipped 7.3 diesel and built E4OD trans. Good truck. I plan on keeping it until I die and it keeps appreciating in value every year. OBS Fords are in demand, especially the 5.3 diesels in 4 wheel drive. Mine is a 4 door too with an 8 foot bed.

    Most people don't know how the F100 evolved into the F150. When the government first mandated unleaded gas, it was required only for cars and light duty trucks. Ford increased the weight capacity of the F100 just enough so it could use leaded gas and renamed that model as the F150. Since leaded gas was cheaper than unleaded and people thought unleaded fuel would damage their engine, it was a very popular option. 75-78 F150 could use leaded gas but the rules changed and 79 models and newer required unleaded. The F100 was dropped and light duty Fords all became F150s. Chevrolet did a similar thing but rather than renaming their pickups, they sold an option package known as Heavy Chevy that increased the weight capacity enough so it could use leaded gas.

    My last F-150; a 2007 Lariat. I loved it but the wife and mom detested it. Guess who won that battle?

    My '05 F250 with 6 liter diesel. Pulls like an ox. Still looks about this good - 120k miles on it. Drags the 15K tandem trailer with Bobcat T250 with ease. Recently had the cab pads replaced, and that smoothed and quieted things a lot - amazing how that creeps up on you and you can't tell.

    BIL has a F100 in his drive - needs about a million $$ in repairs. He's currently driving an '02 F150.

    Recently at a Wally World, I was parked and noticed I was surrounded by 6 other Ford pickups, another F250 and 5 F150s. Finally the Fords changed over to a Toyota Tundra and a Dodge Ram. Then I saw the first car in the row... Don't see a lot of Chevy pickups around here - some, but not a lot.
