Why Farm Trucks Never Get Stolen

I think ours qualifies! :)

The guys at the mechanic shop had some fun adding another special farm truck touch. :)

- They have a range of about 20 miles before they overheat, break down or run out of gas.

- Only the owner knows how to operate the door to get in or out.

- It is difficult to drive fast with all the fence tools, grease rags, ropes, chains, buckets, boots and loose papers in the cab.

- It takes too long to start and the smoke coming up through the rusted-out floorboard clouds your vision.

- The Border Collie on the toolbox looks mean.

- They're too easy to spot. The description might go something like this: The driver's side door is red, the passenger side door is green, the right front fender is yellow, etc.

- The large round bale in the back makes it hard to see if you're being chased. You could use the mirrors if they weren't cracked and covered with duct tape.

- Top speed is only about 45 mph.

- Who wants a truck that needs a year's worth of maintenance, u-joints, $3,000 in bodywork, taillights and a windshield.

- It's hard to commit a crime with everyone waving at you.

hehe too funny. We have a "ranch truck" too although it doesn't quite fit all the descriptions, some do apply.

Yup mine may not be a "ranch" truck but distinctive and contrary it is, no one would steal mine because of all the rust on the roof. It's a good thing too because sometimes I am carrying my (priceless to me at least) video equipment in it. Blessings on your good ole truck, I know I love mine.

Made me smile. Isn't it funny that what to us is priceless is junk to others? We've had some farm vehicles that I loved dearly. :)
