You should look at http://www.truebluetrucks.com. It is a magazine just
about Ford trucks, so they may have a staff member, Q&A column, etc that
could help you. They also publish Spitfire & GT6 Magazine to which I am
a contributor, despite the fact that I am a true blue Spridget guy.
They used to have a Sprite/Midget Magazine that I was a major
contributor to but they stopped publishing it due to lack of readers.
Can you believe that?
