Steve had been an admirer of FC's for quite sometime, but living in Alberta, Canada he didn't have too many opportunities to buy one.  Here's a quote from Steve on his purchase.

"I had only ever seen two Forward Controls, that is, until 2002 when I found
one in our local auto wrecking yard. I harassed the owner of the yard since
then and he finally sold it for "scrap" in March of this year. Once I'd got
a price from him, three of my friends went and bought it for me without me
knowing. Now, after only ever seeing two, I am the proud owner of the third
one. And, we saved one from going to the crusher."

Steve plans on a flat bed instead of the pickup, a V8, an automatic transmission, and all the creature comforts.  He bought it with no rear axle or passenger side door.
