Small Town Girls Like Fords

This small town girl grew up in a Ford family. From my Dad’s Ford F350 work to my brother’s first sports car (a Ford Probe) to the Ford Aerostar that I learned to drive in, my family has always driven Fords.

It’s been said that you can take the person out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the person.  I’m a good example of that, because despite years spent in Taipei and New York City, I don’t just like Fords, I like Ford trucks.

Sure, I have a healthy appreciate for hybrids (they’re environmentally friendly) and performance cars (they’re sexy). I even appreciate the family sedan (I drive one).

The fact remains that nothing (except maybe a Corvette) gets my heart throbbing like a big Ford truck does.  This rebuilt Ford Bronco is a perfect example. Look at that engine. Look at that shiny red paint. Look at that big steely grill and those big black tires. Damn, I love a big Ford:

Someday you’ll see this small town girl driving her hybrid to work each day with a big Ford pickup in the driveway for special occasions. Love me or hate me, I can’t try to hide it that I’m a pickup truck-lovin’ small town girl.

This photo was taken at a car show in Festus, Missouri in September 2010. A few more pictures can be found on my flickr page.

  1. The Bison Rancher's Daughter

    The Bison Rancher’s Daughter is sooo ready to get a hybrid f-350 that can tow at least 10 bison or 12k lbs (whichever unit of measure you prefer). Do you know if Ford is working on that yet for me? My dang transmission went out, so now would be a real niiiiiice time. Bison aren’t gettin’ any rides right now.

  2. I don’t know if they have or not, but I’d be happy to go truck shopping with you if you need a second opinion and/or moral support. 🙂
