First Family Ford P/U

I wasn't sure where to post this, but wanted to share it anyways. I actually found this picture in memorandum of my late past uncle (man in the fore ground) and realized it was a picture of our first 1976 Ford P/U "Porky"
Don't know where my father came up with the name, but I spent many, many, many hours in the middle of that bench seat flippin the 8-track while hunting, 4x4'ng or just traveling the highways of B.C.
I wasn't on this particular moose hunt trip (too young) circa 1977 or 78 buried in the gumbo somewhere off the Alaska highway.
A lot of great family vacations and memories were the result of time spent in this truck, and for some reason even as a kid I always remembered how distinguished it looked with the factory colour matched canopy.
Guess that's my Ford foundation right there...

Ohhh the pictures after this get better... there are some nice 'passed out' shots after killing a 40 lb'r right after getting her winched out. But it's not me... I was like only 8 or 9 when this was taken. This was one of my Dad & Uncles classic hunting trips.
But even back then I loved this truck.
