Show & Go
Year/Make/Model: 1999 Ford F-350

Owner says: “This is my daily driver show truck. I recently won Second Place out of five in the ’88-to-present 4x4 Class at the Cavalcade of Customs show in Cincinnati, Ohio, and best late-model truck two years in a row in a 500-plus car show in Augusta, Kentucky. No one believes it is my daily driver until they see the mileage. We can pull a trophy at a show on Saturday and pull a horse trailer on Sunday. This truck is my baby.”
