Curbside Outtake: 1956 Ford F350 – “The Ultimate Curbside Classic” Is Finally Retired From Its Labors

But I stopped seeing it about two or three years back, and wondered what happened. Was it something to do with the truck, its owner Mike, or?

But I found it sitting here, not very far from my house. It looks like it’s out of commission. I don’t know what the story is, but I hope Mike is ok.

This was the oldest working truck in Eugene, and it well deserved its title. But I suspect eventually someone will get it running again, but not likely to earn its owners keep.
