About “Black Dog”

This is my daily driver/hauler/tow vehicle, basically my everything vehicle. I bought this truck right before Christmas of 06, and have been loving every minute of the truck. It's the first NEW vehicle I have ever owned, as a matter of fact, it only had 66 miles on it when I drove it away from the dealership.

About “Big Red”

Purchased to pull a 28 foot enclosed trailer and support the wife and I in our classic car hobby, Big Red is also my daily driver.

We depend on Big Red to get us there regardless of conditions. If Big Red can't make it, we probably shouldn't be out there in the first place.

Big Red replaced a 1995 Ford F-150 4x4 Supercab named Red. Red soldiered on for 220,000 trouble-free miles before being replaced and was still running strong. Red was the best truck I ever owned, although Big Red has filled the void very well so far.
