Continuing the quasi-tradition of Truck Mondays here at DOTS, today we're going to take a break from The General's trucks and check out a 36-year-old Ford that's still getting the job done. Our last Ford pickup looks like it doesn't do much hauling, but this '71 F-100 clearly earns its keep for some plumber or electrician.

Comes equipped with an LED which goes on when the trigger is pulled. You’ll a clear view of whatever you are drilling or screwing with minimal shadows.
Of course, there's no telling how many engines have lived behind that grille by now; while the Fords weren't quite as swap-friendly as their GM contemporaries, the owner of this truck still has many bolt-in engine-swap options.
Do I need to go on a tirade about real trucks here? Sure, you could commute from Edge City to the office park in this thing... but there are no cupholders!
