Solomonson Family Heirloom the FFG Way

Solomonson Family Heirloom the FFG Way

BRIAN SOLOMONSON, LIKE MANY OF US CRAZED TRUCK ENTHUSIAST­S, FELL IN LOVE WITH PICKUPS AT AN EARLY AGE AND, AS A TEENAGER, HIS DREAM TRUCK WAS A LATE ’70S FORD. It was pure coincidenc­e that Brian happened upon this ’76 F-150 4x4. He came across this truck down by the border of Mexico for sale by the wife of the original owner who had just passed away. Brian knew he had to jump on it, so a deal was struck.

After taking the truck home to Arizona, Brian and his son worked on it together with lots of father/son bonding time. These became special memories, memories that Brian also had of building trucks with his own dad. After his dad was diagnosed with cancer and had his first MRI, all he could talk about was picturing himself driving an old Ford that he had been planning on restoring for years.
