Celebrating 40 Years of classic Ford truck love, the F-100 Western Nationals, hosted by Pickups Limited of Orange County, hit a milestone this year, marking four decades of timeless passion for classic Ford trucks. The picturesque Canyon RV Park in Anaheim, California, served as the perfect venue, with its charming trees casting a welcoming shade over hundreds of showcased trucks.
From classic beauties to Coyote swaps, this year’s event showcased a jaw-dropping array of classic trucks, with many enthusiasts embracing the likeminded people and great trucks. The bumpsides made a remarkable presence, offering fierce competition to the beloved fat fenders that have long dominated the scene. The camaraderie among attendees and participants created an unforgettable atmosphere of shared enthusiasm and love for these automotive treasures.
With the 40th year behind us, we eagerly look forward to the next chapter of classic Ford truck love. Mark your calendars for June 22, 2024, as we’ll be back with even more excitement, stunning restorations, and plenty of classic truck camaraderie.
