Maybe he thinks it's a Volkswagen SUV?

Looks like a nice truck. I’d guess north of $60k in this market.

Who cares what badges the owner puts on it?

Maybe you should seek this person out and find out if he actually got his hands on one of the concept trucks, or they were such fans of it that they badged their F150 as such.

The Atlas was Fords 2013 concept truck revealed at the 2013 NAIAS in Detroit. So probably not as whacky of a situation as you think.

Not a dealer sticker….


No, not a dealer sticker. But still does GM pay you to advertise for them?

No, it's pretty wacky...and I don't actually care if it is an early release truck (Ford's marketing as a "concept" vehicle was pretty weak. It was merely an early release or preview of the new model. Hardly fits the traditional definition of a concept vehicle).

This post was just a funny jab at the Ford guys here...who call me part of the Ram Mafia or whatever.

So you cut all the stamped brand logos out of your vehicle's sheet metal?
I mean, I'm pretty good at autobody and could do it, but sure seems like a large task with diminishing returns.
Or more succinctly to your jackass, leading responses, it's not even my truck and I do get paid to drive a free truck....
It could say "I like d!cks" on the back of it and it would still be hard for me to turn down a roughly $30k/year benefit....Fortunately it says Chevy, so I don't have to be embarrassed to realize the gain!

He!!, for 'bout 20 years, 95% of my company rigs were Fords, and I had a saying "Only good Ford is a free Ford!" lol (Sorry Fish [emoticon])
