Are you frustrated with the way your favorite pickup truck maker is building its newest truck? Do you think you have a better way? Do you have a list of upgrades for your favorite pickup that would smash the competition? Well, we're here to tell you there may be a way to take control of any of truck-making company you like, but it might take a while. In fact, you may have to extend your truck-buying loyalty for a few more decades.
How can you accomplish this? Model yourself after Floyd Pullin of Confluence, Penn., who just turned 102 years old. Pullin bought his first Ford almost 90 years ago, back in the 1920s when the original Henry Ford was running the company.
In honor of Pullin purchasing his 16th Ford vehicle in his lifetime (a brand new 2013 Ford F-150 STX), Ford named him honorary Ford Truck president for a day. At a special party held at Thurby Riverside Ford in Confluence, Pullin's family and friends celebrated with him, where they all got to view a special video put together by Ford employees wishing him happy birthday and thanking him for being such a diehard Ford fan (see video below).
Ford made no comment about any F-150 or Super Duty design changes instituted by Pullin during his tenure or what type of golden parachute the former executive was able to negotiate.
