Dodge B-Series “Job Rated” Truck – Westport, CT

October 4th, 2012 by Stu

I always seem to catch these lonely old work horses parked or abandoned alongside random rest stops just off the highway. This time around the subject was a Dodge B-Series [’48 – ’53] that appears to be a daily driver. One thing is for sure…it sports an amazing patina. Love the “Job Rated” plaque that adorns the grille and the curvaceous 1950s Dodge lettering that’s sprawled across the beat up old tailgate.

Way cool and way cheap. Here’s a nice one for $5,400

Ford Model AA Stake-Bed Truck – Rose Avenue, Venice (CA)

May 24th, 2010 by Mike

Walking around my hood looking for interesting cars is a bit like shooting fish in a barrel. If you get sick of GT3s and SEL 6.9s and MG Midgets and Austin Minis, there’s always this elderly Ford truck (circa 1930) with handicap permit in the front and living quarters in the rear. Built Ford Tough takes on a whole new meaning when you see one of these ~ 80 year old workhorses still going strong.

1957 Chevy Model 3100 Pickup – W37th St & 5th Ave, NYC

March 18th, 2010 by Stu

There are a few Man on the Move rides that we have spotted more than once while walking the Isle of Manhattan. But this 1957 Chevy Model 3100 Pickup is positively everywhere. Uptown, downtown, east side, west side – I can’t seem to avoid the beautiful two-tone classic. Talk about an awesome daily driver, it’s great to see the owner gives this baby so much exercise.

1956 Ford F-100 Pickup – N 14th Street, Brooklyn

1956 Ford F-100

Our pal Dave captured this handsome devil in Williamsburg. As far as vintage pick ups go, they don’t get a whole lot cooler than this. The rounded hood and wrap around windshield made this baby an instant classic. Click through for more pictures.

Ford F-150 SVT Raptor – Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, California

September 7th, 2009 by Stu

Ford F150 SVT Raptor

Cabbing it to LaGuardia at 5am is never fun, but I wasn’t too bothered because what waited for me in Borrego Springs was a series of high speed desert romps and physics defying hill climbs in Ford’s all new F-150 SVT Raptor. SVT, or Special Vehicle Team, is Ford’s in-house performance division responsible for breathed-on models like Mustang Cobra, Mustang GT500, SVT Focus, SVT Contour and the exotic GT supercar. Raptor is their latest and greatest effort and follows in the tire tracks of Ford’s original performance truck, the SVT Lighting. But where the supercharged, 380 HP Lightning did a wonderful job of going like stink in a straight line, the Raptor was imagined to be the first high speed off-road performance truck offered by an automotive OEM.
