Ford #10

Driving along Lone Oak Road, I spotted this old Ford pickup truck sitting next to a rundown house waiting for spring. Why number 10?

  2. Looks like a tired '68 - '70.
    My guess is that it is an ex-DNR / State wildlife work truck. each would have had a unique number like that ?

  8. Great capture. This is classic Americana. An old Ford, knee deep snow and a mystery hidden in the trees. Maybe it was a "10" in its day.

  9. With a little more time, I could come up with a funny explanation, but I am tired tonight after cheering Connecticut and Ohio State on to basketball tournament victories.

  10. A big firm bought several identical red cars, and when the employess should use a car, it was easier to say number 1, 2 etc. than the license plate number ;-)
    Have a great week!

  11. The 10th one they owned? Nice shot!

  12. Hm, so have you found the other nine? That Ford in particular seems to be enjoying the retired life as a woodsman, ha ha ha... Nice photo, by the way! The car lying around the winter scenery is a nice image.

  13. That mahogany-colored truck seems to camouflage with the rest of the woods. It’s quite a fantastic sight! Winter can sometimes be a hassle, but it’s still a beautiful season people look forward to every year.

  14. A few more pounds of snow, and that Ford is done for. I wonder if it still works or someone just really left it out like that. As for the number 10, my theory is that it may have been once owned by a company with tons of other pick-up trucks and they put numbers on them to know exactly how many they have, hehe! =)
