Ask DJ Lyons: Vintage Ford Pick-Up Truck in Red

Vintage Ford Pick-Up Truck in Metallic Red

Do you like vintage cars?

I thought this shiny red vintage truck was just beautiful. This particular shade of red on the pick-up was so metatlic-looking and really pretty. My husband and I saw it at a car show they held in Greeneville, Tennessee when we drove downtown to eat breakfast at a restaurant called Tipton's Cafe. I was so grateful that I had my digital camera with me that takes photos and short videos.

Part of what I most loved about this pick-up truck is that the truck bed actually had hardwood floors that were shined to perfection. It also looked like they had spent a lot of time shining and cleaning this pick-up truck.

Here is a picture of a Vintage Ford Pick-Up truck. Click VINTAGE FORD PICK-UP TRUCK to watch a very short video of this car. The video is 40 seconds long. Enjoy!

Flight of Fancy

Imagine, if you will, if you were the owner of this pretty Vintage Ford truck back during the year when it was first made. Unfortunately, I don't know what year this car was made as the current owner of the truck was nowhere to be found.

So, let's say the year was 1945. You had gone with your wife to purchase a new car. You knew you needed a pick-up truck yet your wife wanted to ride around in a fancy car. You look around at all the cars available on the car lot or in the show window - if they had show windows back then. Your wife is walking toward the front of the lot and only sees the front part of this vehicle. You, on the other hand, have walked the entire lot and have scoped out this vehicle from all sides. Let's see what the imaginary conversation might have sounded like.

Wife: Honey, I have seen the prettiest red car. You know how much I love red. That is my favorite color. I think we should get this pretty red car.

Husband: Sweetheart, I know you prefer that we get a car; however, we really need a pick-up truck that I can haul things around in. I have seen the most ideal red pick-up truck that will do everything that I need to do. Plus, the price is right.

Wife: Honey, just come look at this pretty red car that I have picked out.

Husband: Sweetheart. come take a look at this ideal red pick-up truck that I have picked out.

The "discussion" continues. Finally, since you are a gentleman, you agree to come and see this car that she has picked out.

She leads you on the same path that she has originally walked. Much to your surprise and secret delight, she leads you over to the very pick-up truck that you had selected. So as you both stand there admiring the car that she had picked out, you say, "Sweetheart, on second thought, I think you are right. This is the very car for us. Let's get it."

Wife: Really? You really like the same car that I like?

Husband: Yes, I really do. Let's get it.

Wife: Oh, honey! You are the greatest!

You immediately go over to the salesman and start haggling on the price. Once the transaction has been completed, you lead your wife over to the car that she had picked out. It is not until she is proudly climbing into this car does she realize, too late, that she had actually picked out a pick-up truck rather than a car like she originally thought. You can just imagine her chagrin and your delight.

It had been a WIN-WIN for a few minutes until she realizes her mistake too late. Hopefully, she will come to love the pick-up truck that looks like a car from the front and a pick-up truck from behind.

Johnny Lightning '65 Ford Mustang Convertible Elvis Toy Car

This is a cool Elvis collectoble die-cast toy car that is a must have for any Elvis Presley fan! Ford had introduced its Mustang mid-year 1964 to wide acclaim, so the revisions for 1965 were minimal. The company did expand its Mustang offerings to include a new 2+2 fastback body style along with the hardtop and convertible. On August 27, 1965, Elvis' version of "Crying in the Chapel" peaked at #3 on the pop chart. We dry your tears with this hot Cinnamon Pearl pony with a black interior and thin white line tires.
