My 1st Truck
By 04 Desmo on
1997 Ford F-150 XLT 2dr Regular Cab SB
Never thought about getting a truck,
but an implulse buy made me glad I did.
It has moved me 3 times over the last 3
years. This thing is very reliable, and
for 115000 miles still work like a
charm. The 4.2 V6 w/ 5sp has a bit of
get-up and is fantastic on the highway.
Great control location, and the
interior design is highly functional
and comfy. Exterior design is OK.
Residual is alright for a 1997, but I
have no plans in selling it. I'm trying
to put in a CD player, but the 1997
stereo is unique, and I can't find one!
A boatload of crap or a weeks worth of
groceries fit behind the front seat.
Hmmm-instrument cluster has dual fuel
filler door indicators (i'm not quite
THAT slow) and a cruise control
indicator that isn't even functional on
the F-150 (for use in the expedition???)
