Truck Thursday: A Few From The Street Rod Nationals


So, a whiles back this olelongrooffan spent some time wandering around a field at the spring training facility of some major league baseball team (don’t remember which one and don’t really care–I just know it wasn’t the Cards) up in Fort Myers, and while there I spotted a few trucks at that Street Rod show. One of them was this OJ front Bronco. Yeah, a few years ago while this olelongrooffan was still living in Sl-Ocala, I picked up a ’93 F150 for some reason or another. H*ll, I owned a home on three acres and a Hoon just has to have a truck while living on a ranchette. Anyway, I called thejeepjunkie and as I described it he exclaimed, “Oh, it’s the one with an OJ front.” Ever since then, that is how this olelongrooffan describes this gen of 150s. My fellow Hoons will need to make the jump to see some of the other trucks spotted for this Truck Thursday.


Just down a ways from that OJ front Bronco, I spotted this old pickup truck. Muted red, totally modified and possessing a Mustang II front end. And oh yeah, that is a 460 under the bonnet. This probably came out of the factory with an inline six and a three on the tree.


Then down a ways was this sweet old Dodge Brother’s offering. Ever since this olelongrooffan was a kid working under the hood of Dad’s old Model A, I have always thought those split hoods were a total pain in *ss to work under. But this was a sweet looking relatively rare sighting.


And, of course, the obligatory Elky.


Just remember my fellow Hoons, the City of Palms is less than ten miles from the Florida Everglades and the sighting of some of these Big Foot wannabes is inevitable. But man, that ’66 short bed F100 was sweet.


And just to share with my fellow Hoons the variety of sights to be seen, check out this supercar parked next to this supertruck. This olelongrooffan has commented previously that it is possible to register pretty much anything here in the Sunshine State.


And if any of my fellow Hoons need a ’55 Super Sport fender for your HHR, this olelongrooffan has you covered. Shipping not included.
