The 1993 F-150 SVT Lightning truck was quite an odd duck in those days. It sported a 351 with most of the Mustang Cobra's engine tricks (GT40 heads and such) as well as a host of other go-fast goodies. A performance truck, you say? While they may be normal today, in 1993 most trucks were not meant to go fast. Later, the SVT truck became quite a monster. Once it moved over to the "new" body style and Modular engine family, it sported overhead cams, a supercharger, etc. That one became very popular at the drag strip.
What I find most striking is how small this "big" truck is. In the background of my photo, you can see a modern F-150. It dwarfs this 93. In fact, this truck looks much more like a modern Ranger than an F-150. This one is in really good shape, too.
I snapped this photo while stopped at a light on 141 today. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, and this guy had all the windows down. Seemed like the perfect classic car at that moment. It was obviously an unrestored daily driver. Good shape, not perfect, but a perfect example.

The three of them went through the same confirmation series at our church....
....and then we had a little get-together at Gus' house.

....and along came my in-laws. My Christmas/Birthday/ gift was none other than a new mower. Thank you, Grandma and Grandpa. Not only does this mean that I will not have to borrow their mower, but Tyson will have an instrument with which to earn a little cash this summer and in future summers.
