    That is a two owner 48K mile 1973 F-250 Camper Special. All original except dual exhausts, wheels and paint. I still have the original Firestone tires on the locking rims but they are no longer road worthy .To keep this on topic, it does not haul wood.

    My wood hauler is an 11 year old pick-up... sags a little under a full load.

    I used to haul my firewood up out of my "back 25" with this baby and a 5x10 trailer. Alas, it finally died and I sold it off at auction last year, I have not replaced it yet. I've been hauling the trailer out in style with my 2002 Toyota Highlander the last two years, heated leather seats and all! (1980's photo, I've put on a few more lbs, and lost a bit more hair since then, maybe the beer and hammock have something to do with it!)

    Ah, you caught me on that one MasterMech, it IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO KILL AN "M". It never really was totally dead, just had been acting up with issues here and there for some time. Ignition, funky wiring job on a 12V conversion before I got it, water leaking down into the transmission freezing her up solid in winter, starters, steering, hydrolic pump .... 30 years of sitting out in the weather since I got it in the early 80's. I felt it was the time to move it and use the money towards something better suited for my wood working needs while it still was running. I had my eye on a 4 wheel drive Ford 1920 with a bucket/backhoe combo on it that a farmer was selling near by, or something similiar, Kubota, etc.. Never did end up getting that Ford, or anything else yet.

    So I've been heading back carefully running the woods in style with the Highlander. With the V-6 and Blizzak M/S tires on it, it pulls out my 5x10 trailer full of wood with authority and elegance :cool:. I also use my JD Sabre lawn mower with the deck off and chains on it to buz loads around the yard and such with a garden dump wagon. I'll probably pick up some kind of little 4 wheel drive hoe next year for sure as I have some small scale digging I want to do, then take the hoe off and use it as a wood runner the rest of the time.

    Above is a better picture of that old M when I sold it. I had put a 3 point hitch set up on it too. She was a tired old 1942 gal in need of TLC. That other photo was actually probably from the 80's, not 90's after I thought about it. I'm 57 now.

    Yep, Split everything with it for most of 40 years, but then I got old. But it still gets used to quarter stuff in the field. That one is actually my son's. Mine doesn't have much orange paint left on it

    Steve, It is a good old truck. I bought it about 4 years ago for $1600. Spent $400 on it and it has been a work horse ever since. It will haul everything you can fit in it. As you can see, it doesn't mind a load of wood.;)
