Ford has changed a lot over the years.
The entire automotive community has changed a lot over the years, but it's always important to know where you came from, and where you can go. Introducing Chris's F150 FX-2 and Sean's Harley Davidson F150.
On the left is Chris Durham's 2011 Ford F-150 FX-2, and on the right is Sean Rowe's 2002 Harley Davidson F-150. This is our first double feature post, but these two trucks compliment each other too much to separate.
Both of these trucks actually lay down comparable power. The FX-2 runs the popular Ford 5.0, while the Harley Davidson runs a supercharged 5.4. They're both enjoyable trucks to see run down the highway, and their suspension really pull of the look. It's rare to see lowered full sized trucks, but I'm glad I ran into these two.
It's obvious these trucks are from different times. The entire front end of both are remarkably different. Regardless, they're both amazing in their own way. Neither truck is butchered in any way, and definitely don't sit in the garage. Both of these trucks are daily drivers, and are planning on the long haul.
Surprisingly enough, neither Chris and Sean are die hard Ford fans. Neither of them are actually die hard truck fans either. They both enjoy Ford, and enjoy trucks, but it's these truck's practicality, rarity, or potential that attracted them to their owners. This is why these trucks stand out from the crowd, but are still worthy of being driven in every condition.
Each truck has their own flare, and their own additions (or subtractions). Some things are subtle, like the subtraction of Chris's running boards, and other things are obvious like Sean's very appropriate license plate. Every aspect of these trucks has been deeply thought about by Chris and Sean, and it has paid off.
I'll never under appreciate a car that's well taken care of. That's one main reason I do shoots like this. The love and care that has gone into these trucks is refreshing, and really made me want to learn more. Each with their own flare, their own style, and their own story, these trucks never disappointed me in any way.
I've never been a truck guy, and I may never be a truck guy, but riding in these trucks was great. Surprisingly, they both felt very similar. Of course, one was more modern than the other, but they both gave off the same feeling inside. Of course, this is true for the outside too, but that's no surprise.
They're alike, but they're different. Same make, same model, different packages, different years. It's not everyday you're able to photograph two vehicles that are from the same line and almost feel like they're completely different. It's amazing what these trucks have been through, and what I'm sure they'll continue to go through as time goes on.
I'd like to thank Chris and Sean for giving me their time. Like it has been for the past few shoots, this one took many reschedules, but we were finally able to make it happen. I look forward to watching these trucks grow and create and even deeper bond to their owners!
