While traveling this week with work we found our way to Rome, Georgia where this gentleman was just hanging out at the airport with his 1951 Flathead Ford F1 Pickup. While initial conversation was centered around flying I noticed his truck out front. I quickly asked if he minded if I could take a picture of it. He gladly consented and I thought I’d share a few different angles of this wonderful old pickup.

  1. Pictures of this car are superior to most art hanging in galleries.

    • Hi Allen,

      I don’t think I can be much help to you as I’m a picture taker not a flat head mechanic. But I do think the 51 Ford is a true classic!
