Lou because I mistakenly through PO had named it from the old punch tape label on the bottom of the dash. Later I found the switch hole for the old lift bed on the bottom so instead of Lou, it indicated 'Lower, Off, Up'. :o

My 68 is Mancar. I have had several Ford Trucks during my 68 years and they have all been named Mancar.
Late wife came up with it and the name has stuck.

LOL! That's cute! Reminds me of the time my 4yr old son was riding with me and asked me, "can I turn the Oreo? It's cold in here." I looked at him, puzzled by "Oreo". He pointed to the horizontally rotating temperature adjusting knob--black top and bottom with a white middle-- and explained to me that it looked like a cookie. He was right. It did look like an Oreo cookie. I'd never noticed. It takes a kid to see those things.

So now, no matter what vehicle or house we're in, when anybody in the family wants the temperature raised or lowered, we say, "up/down the Oreo, please!" Family-specific humor. :lol:

Since my wife's name is Peggy, which is a nickname for Margaret (don't ask me how, it just is) I named my truck Maggie, another nickname for Margaret. This works out well, that my girlfriend (truck) pays homage to my wife, so she doesn't get as jealous when I spend quality time working on 'Maggie' instead of with 'Peggy'. :lol:

I almost picked Meg, yet another Margaret variation, but my wife immediately said "Oh, after Meg Ryan?" whom she knew I had a crush on back in the day. That wasn't going to work!! :D

I have a patina'd 68 and she's a faded worn springtime yellow, so I call mine O'Yeller.
