Nice lookin truck. I've got one of each.
A 68 F-250, and a 74 F-100. I like them
both... Some will say the 67-72 are better,
and they might be to an extent, but the
73-79 line is still a pretty dang good truck..
It's really not a whole lot different. In fact,
a good many of my parts will exchange
between the two.. I've been getting set up
to transfer many old VHS tapes to DVD.
One of the tapes was a trip to AR we took
in the 74 back in 1989. I didn't own the truck
at that time, but it still looks about the same
now, as it does in these video snaps..
I noticed one thing... The freaking macrovision
that they built into my vid card is messing
with many of my VHS plays. Even stuff that
is not copyrighted. :( On my old tapes that
were recorded at EP, my video cards sees
any noise, etc, as macrovision pulses, and
is "blooming" my video.. @$#&$*(*(
So I'm going to have to buy a video stabilizer
to clean it up.. But those will also let me cut
true macrovision pulses too... So I guess not a
total waste of $$$... But I think it's ridiculous that I
should have to buy one of those to be able to
record my own video to DVD.. I have a circuit
I could build for one of those, but I may just
buy one off e-bay... IE: Sima unit, etc..
Oh, BTW...One of the pix, is from a driving
view. The location is the southern ozarks
in AR...Note the truck "brake fail" runoff to the
right.. Note the truck sitting in it.. He was in
front of us, and ran off into that thing while
we were watching from behind him .. :/
Pretty steep hills they have around there..

A quickie note...After posting this, I went over to
fleabay and bought a SIMA Go DVD! CT- 200.
That should cure my VHS to DVD woes... I grabbed
one with buy it now, at a decent price, so maybe
will have it before the weekend with the 2-3 day
shipping.. My video pix should look a tad better once
I get that..
