Mark Nicastro's 1996 Ford F250
When I was 7 years old, my parents bought a brand new 1979 Ford F150 step-side truck. That was the day that I fell in love with it. This truck has been though a lot between a broken 4 wheel drive when it was brand new and never had it working for 10 years that it was driven, to pulling out tractors that were stuck in the mud, to burying it to its axles in mud pulling a trailer, hunting in the mountains and getting it stuck having to walk back home for the tractor to get it out, hitting 2 deer and mashing the front end and door, blowing up the engine, to setting in a field for 8 years before it was given to me, to having it stripped down to the bare bones and setting for the next 14 years in our yard rusting away before I was able to start restoring it to its former glory. When I started this project with my son it took us 4 years and many obsolete parts to finally get it where we could put it into car shows and taking it out for Friday night dates.
