The 26th Annual F-100 Nationals took place on the first day of summer 2008 in Corona, California at what the old-timers refer to as Featherly Park. The event was hosted by Pickups Limited of Orange County, an F-100 club (the oldest of seven chapters) that was started in Orange County, California way back in 1968 when Lee Hill placed an advertisement in the Pennysaver, a local giveaway publication.
This year, prior to the big Saturday show, Pickups Limited organized a beach cruise on Friday afternoon that led over 25 trucks down to Newport Beach, and then back up to John Force's Racestation for a tour of John's very cool museum. After checking out John's place most of the out-of-town folks cruised that last couple of miles back to the Ayres Hotel in Anaheim Hills, and then called it a day a very fun day. For information regarding next year's show please check out www.pickupslimited.com.
This '56 F-100 Big-Window was bought new in Corona, CA and was used daily as a work truck until '72. It remains in the family of the original owner.
