It is not too often that you see Bigfoot 1 with the 10 foot tall tires. The photo is tagged Bigfoot 7, which must be the monster truck trying to climb it. I kind of lost count of the Bigfoot monster trucks after the first three or four.

Beautiful 1979 Ford F350!

NBC Steve posted some photos of his 1979 Ford F350 on the “Show Us Your Truck” thread on Ford Truck Enthusiasts forum and I love it! The only thing I would change is the rims…perhaps something more 1979 vintage style. Ohter than that, it is almost perfect. What do you think?

Infamous Stroppe Built Balloon Chase F100 Found!

Broncitis of the Classic Broncos forum has recently purchased one of the infamous balloon chaser F100 and will be giving it a full restoration. You may notice the ambulance Bronco in the photo, which belongs to his father and is also being restored.

Overall, the 1977 F100 stepside is in pretty good shape for being stored outside for the last 20 years. It definatly needs some paint work, the rims will be changed to slots or turbines (both were used) and a mild 460 has replaced the 351m.

Make sure to check the restoration thread out on Classic Broncos and hear some of the wild tales of chasing a hot air balloon across America. Being thrown in jail in Mexico, Ford rescinding their sponsorship…what an adventure!
