Readers Ride: Blake Weddington’s 1959 Ford F100

For some reason i found two readers ride emails in the spam folder today.
The first one was from Blake Weddington, and as soon as i started to flip to the pictures i saw something really cool that i liked, but it wasn’t his Ford F100, although i love the ride and have a lot of love for early/mid 60’s F100/trucks like the American Restoration episode i wrote about a couple of months ago. NO! it was the gray bicycle standing on the bed. Blake if could, i would let you build one for me. 🙂

The bikes and of course the truck looks awesome.

I let Blake tell the story in his own words.

“My name is Blake Weddington. I live in los angeles california and bought this truck stock in Feb 2012. I found it on a farm in dinuba california and shipped it back to los angeles. it now has new interior, independant front suspension power steering and disc brakes rear step notch and parallel 4 link. air bagged all the way around. cheap wooden bed. i built. also, I built the motor bike in the bed of the truck and its a lowrider built off a felt frame chopped and lowered. Great site

Blake”

Thanks for sharing your ride Blake.

One Good Story

This is one good story.

“A 1965 Chevy Impala SS is more than a car to the Younger family, it’s what binds them together.

To pay for his son’s education, Herb Younger was forced to sell his beloved ’65 Impala. Two decades later, they found a way to pay him back.”

EDIT: this was my 800 post on this blog, thanks to all my visitors for coming back and read.
And on another note, i posted this video on the Ellen Degeneres facebook page and now it’s gone, so if you see this family on the Ellen show i made it happen 🙂
