I Bought A Truck!
A 90's Fashion Brand Walks Into a Bar With a Timeless Pickup Design...
I recently purchased a 1995 Ford F-150 Extended Cab as my first vehicle. I'm over the moon about it- She's in near perfect condition, with the only notable imperfection being a small dent in the shiny chrome rear fender. I couldn't be happier with my choice to buy a truck.
There's something interesting about this truck. There's a gold signature towards the rear of the truck eloquently communicating that this specimen of an already great truck has more to offer inside. If you open one of the doors and peer inside, you will be greeted by this:
This Is What Luxury Looks Like | Ford F-150 Eddie Bauer Edition
It may look pretty standard to you now, but- Y'know what, nevermind, it was standard. Here's the interior to a 'regular' F-150 from the same year.

Believe it or not, these are different trucks. The pattern continues in the rear seats if you have the extended cab (mine is). The only interior differences between the two are accents and the Eddie Bauer Edition came with all bits available on the XLT performance and comfort wise. So in its heyday it was a bit of a ripoff (Who am I kidding, it's totally worth it for the signature sticker on the side).
Anyhoo, Eddie Bauer was a popular Outdoorsman clothing brand, and in the 90's they make jeans, shirts, and puffer jackets, among other things. Yes I did buy an Eddie Bauer shirt too why do you ask?

Today you can find them selling for relatively the same prices as the standard F-150's of the time. (My EB is an Extended Cab.) It's a different story with the EB Bronco however. It got leather seats... totally not jealous.

Oh well, guess you can't have everything. Moving on.
I love my baby, I named her Clementine. She's been great so far, and I hope to have her for a long time.
Say Hi to Clementine!
I'm really glad I went with a truck, considering I live in the Pacific Northwest. It's already coming in handy too, on the way home from picking it up, we came across a deer laying on it's side in the middle of the road. My dad, being a Game Warden, pulled the animal into the ditch and euthanized it. We loaded it into the back, and continued on our merry way.
