1972 Ford F-100 pickup, junked -real-

January 26, 2011

by Seb Perez

This is one of our favorite pickups ever as we also learned to drive (at age 12!) in a pick up like this. We told you about one of our grandpa’s junkyard. Well, the other grandpa used to drive a 1972 Ford F-100 pickup like this one on the picture, but in perfect condition (a post about that great red pickup will follow).

There were many F-100 pickups in town. Other pickups -like this one- were not so lucky with their owners. On the other hand, luckily for us (junk fans), there are people who drive their vehicles with no mercy…   so that we can take pictures of them when totally junked.

That’s a great old pickup! Love it!

All of my trucks have been Fords. My first one was a primered 1959 Ford F-100

Ok, so how do we create that great detail around the Ford emblem.

Rick January 26, 2011 at 5:59 pm

This looks sooo real. I am amazed once again. First off, where did you get a 72 Ford pick up. I had a 75 when I was 18, I would love to build one? Second, how do you get so much detail into these wonderful pieces of art?

Keep up the great work,
Rick

@Rick, @Dana: Guys, this is a REAL picture of a REAL pickup Sorry to disappoint you! We’ll be sharing both scale models and real junk cars in our blog. So this one is a real pickup from Granpa’s junkyard! I just added “-real-” on the title.

Seb, when will we see your’s?
I had to look twice to see if it was real or not, knowing your workmanship is so special it does make one think if it is or is not real.

Please get in touch with Danny!

Hey Bro,

Dani is this guy from http://scenesunlimited.homestead.com/ – we have seen his website already. He does some great piece of work! Mike told us several times through ebay to get in touch with him. We should do so!

That’s got some character to it. Is that from your grandpas old junkyard??

Iggy January 29, 2011 at 9:58 pm

That is actually half a block away from grandpa’s junkyard – or what was grandpa’s junkyard. It isn’t there anymore… :(
