Even a trip to the mall can be interesting for finding rare gems parked just begging to be seen. The 1950 Ford F1 is one such find. This truck was so custom that until I saw the front of the hood I wasn’t certain of the model year.

The pictures are from my Nokia phone and lack the color and quality that I usually present. It reminds me that even a trip to the mall means I should be carrying the digital! I spent two hours trying to photo-shop these pictures to something halfway decent and the results are below. Not great but passable. I waited around for the owner to show for a while but sadly I ran out of time to get his story. So the pictures are all with some description on the details that at first take get missed. Enjoy!

That is all the pictures I have, at least that came out worth viewing. Hope it is an inspiration for that upcoming winter project. Happy hunting! :)
