When I was in high school and early years in college, I drove my family’s 1964 F100 Ford pickup, and I miss it dearly. When I came across a 1966 Ford F100 with the same color and a stick shift in SD, I knew I had to have it as my blacksmith shop truck. After putting in many hours of work to get the 352 V8 engine running smoothly and painting our shop logos on the doors, I now drive it regularly as my shop truck. It is important to me to keep it as original as possible, similar to how I strive to maintain the authenticity of my blacksmith tools. I am enamored with the feeling of nostalgia it evokes as I shift gears and reminisce about the past.
