Abilene to Maine: the Ford F-100

from photographer Scott Dorrance:
"Shot this truck last Spring here in Portland. Looks like it might be a Texas truck as all the rust in on the top of the truck and NOT caused by salt on the roads. Also has a dealer logo from Abilene, TX ! Anyway I found it again while I was making photo books for the boys for Christmas. Happy Holidays"--SD
(AL found a beautiful 1966 turquoise F-250 in Colorado Springs. And another turquoise mid-Sixties F-100 up here. And a very clean Colorado F100 here.
