trickyrick's 1968 Ford F100

My Daily Driver
I purchased my truck in the spring of 2008. My oldest son Ricky was 12 at the time and had a keen interest in mechanics. I purchased the truck for $800 bucks realizing it needed a little tlc, and knowing it was a good vehicle for my son to learn basic mechanics. Through the years my son and I have spent many quality hours slowly rebuilding her while still maintaining it as my primary driver. Drum brakes were converted to disc with all new brake lines. The 240 six with 3 on the tree was replace with a crate 390 that we upgrade with a performance cam, Edelbrock street performer intake, Holly 640 carb, and Hooker long tubes. We modified the suspension by doing a reverse flip on the rear springs, and cutting the front springs and cold bending the I-beams for alignment. We rebuilt the rear with new Trac-lok posi, ring and pinion , and running 389 gears. while stile a work in progress we are near completion of our TRUE father, son driveway build. We will be finishing the Truck off this spring with a shop truck tribute to my dad who had a shop back in the day when I was just a boy, " Tricky Dick's Garage"

My wife for allowing me to spend time and money on my pride and joy.


December 4th 2004 while hanging Christmas lights on the roof of my house I fell from my chimney 27 feet, landing on my concrete driveway. I had been drinking and should have known better, but yet there I was. I knew I had a drinking problem and had prayed to Jesus to remove this vise from my life, what I hadn't counted on was the method he would choose. By the Lords grace I survived a fall that should have killed me , or left me paralyzed, yet I was alive. With 3 broken vertebrates in my back, and a leg shattered, I spent the next 4 weeks in the hospital, still uncertain if I would walk again. I prayed daily for God to give me another chance to walk and be able to share in the joys of being a better husband and father. I prayed the Lord would give me the strength to extinguish me desires for smoke and alcohol and deliver me to his grace. My physical recovery was slow, however I felt the presence of my Lord working on both my physical and spiritual recovery. My desire for drink was gone, as if by some miracle God snatched it from my sole. My body grew stronger, and I slowly regained my strength to once again walk, this time I was walking toward the Lord. Its been 10 years since I surrendered myself to Christ, and today I am the Loving father and husband that Christ intended me to be. I know now that what makes me a man in my relationship I have with Jesus Christ.
