If Dom doesn't mind me taking the liberty, I'll put his previous 94 F350 back into the collection...mainly to show some neat stuff, but also in case some OBS/Ford truck guys can share input into some very important questions that have been keeping me up at night.....truck will turn 30 years old on February 15th, born in Canada at Ontario Truck Plant, but raised in southern California....

Build sheet is still under the seat. 1st question-why do they put them there, and how do they put them there? Why not just fold it and leave it in the glovebox?

There are two buck tags on this truck. One is in the usual spot under the bed on the passenger side next to frame rail. But there is another identical buck tag mounted to the firewall, (up in the right corner of this pic) Is this just an Ontario thing?

Steering wheel has little blue Ford oval in the center. Some have the blue one, some just have oval embossed in plastic. I thought maybe a Canada thing, but seems to be no particular reason why some have one and others don't...

One last thing that's kinda cool. Engine tag shows 2/11/94. 460 built in Lima, Ohio. Just a few days before truck built on 2/15/94 in Oakville, Ontario. How do they move the engines from Lima to Canada. I suppose truck, but load on ship to go across the lake would be cooler.

Truck does complain that the nearest In N Out is a two and a half hour drive, but all else is really good.

Not sure on your questions. But I love the OBS bodystyle.

I guess they are my favorites. I like the bullnose generation (1980-86), and my first truck-and only one I ever sold-was a 74 dentside (1973-79 generation). OBS might be the best of old school Ford trucks.

Because of this truck, you're on the good dude list even if it does harm your reputation. I thought of trying to slip the build sheet outta there, then realized I'd never get it out in one piece, and why take it out anyway? I have Marti report and Ford dealer found factory invoice for me. MSRP back in 94 was 25 thousand something.

Dom, If you sweet talk Mark some more, he might get you one of his Limited Edition INO T-Shirts. Otherwise, you'll have to order it from the company store like everyone else... lol.

Nah. Had to go to west Texas for a year and a half, before now freezin my butt off up in North Dakota and Montucky. Went to Whataburger a few times. In-N-Out for the win.
Was stationed in Corpus for many years and San Diego for many years. It’s terrible burger but animal style saves it. Whataburger has a great burger, great fries and great sweet tea. Luckily we have some in Florida and I get it atleast once a year when I go home for the holidays. They put some Whataburgers in South Carolina but none in the Low Country. We do have a five guys and Freddy’s which are good.

None of the chain places (incl. the sit down restaurants) are really worth a shit anymore since PE firms bought them up and traded quality for margins.
That’s what I’ve noticed too. And what others I know say also. No bueno. But honestly I’d rather have a five guys burger than any of those others. But that’s only when I’m splurging. Lol
