Monster Truck

Here’s our friend Thorsten’s new ride. 1979 Ford F250 with a bit of customisation.

Very practical for transporting wife and baby to BBQs in.

About $6,000 from eBay, amazingly registered with the Dubai authorities – not sure how he got that through!

I can’t imagine a pick up truck sold in the UK in 1979 coming with air con, cruise control, three point seat belts – and certainly not a 7 litre V8 that does about 8 miles to the gallon.

Apparently the suspension is very stiff and bouncy. I’m hoping to have a go in it in the desert at some point though.

Thorsten’s other car is… A Unimog.
