Ford F-Series LeMay ACM

An exhibit called “Ford F-Series: The Truck That Grew Up With America” opened on January 10, 2015, at LeMay—America’s Car Museum (ACM), in Tacoma, Washington, and the size of the crowd predicted its popularity. As the largest automotive museum in North America, the city’s four-level, 165,000-square-foot gem is always a choice destination, but the level of attendance that day proved how much Americans love the trucks that have dominated the marketplace for nearly four decades.

nos

The cover of the April 1969 issue of Motor Trend heralded the introduction of an entirely new automotive category—the two-door sport utility vehicle based on a shortened full-size pickup truck. The vehicle was the Chevrolet Blazer and, from its introduction in 1969 until its successor, the two-door Chevrolet Tahoe was discontinued in 1999, it was often the best-selling vehicle in its class. It took Jeep (Cherokee) and Dodge (Ramcharger) until 1974 to respond with two-door models of their own, and … Read the rest of the story…
