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?
