moonhare: (little bear)

Among some papers I came across yesterday when rummaging about here were the original bill of sale for my old truck, and even the card of the salesman who sold it to my mom.

These all expand to become more readable

The truck was originally bright red, but my mom had it painted to match colors she was fond of. I have that bill as well, somewhere, along with (I think) the tow package modifications. The red is showing through here and there now.

Look at that line up of Fords for 1974! Pintos, even :o)

The title when the truck was given to me.

And there he rests until my neighbors complain. That plate is my first commercial plate, from my 1971 F100. The rear plate may still have readable tags from that one. So many memories... Little Bear didn't grace the rearview on this one, but a cute little koala used to cling to the side of it.

Ah, and a furry pic to round this out

A quick look online using the VIN gave me insight to the truck's origin. This site decoded the numbers sufficiently enough to tell me where my old friend started his life: the Mahwah Ford Assembly Plant in New Jersey. The plant closed just six years after my truck was created, but there are of course photos here and there online of it. *sigh* What's happened to this country? This page wasn't too bad for imagery.

And Birthers be damned! ;o)
