 CARAVAN OF VINTAGE FORD TRUCKS ROLLS THROUGH OHIO AUG. 11-13
 This summer marks the 75th anniversary of Ford Motor Company's (NYSE: F) permanent entry into truck manufacturing. On July 2, 1917, the first truck chassis was produced, ushering in a new line of vehicles that continue to shape the way Americans work and live.
 To commemorate the occasion, a caravan of vintage and current Ford trucks is on a journey from Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., traversing the entire distance of I-75, ending in Fort Myers, Fla., on Aug. 23.
 Ohio truck lovers interested in the "75 on 75" caravan have one more opportunity to see this entourage, which includes a vintage 1917 Model T One Ton Truck, a 1928 Runabout pickup, a 1949 F-Series pickup, a 1936 Ford highway tractor, scheduled to appear in the Jimmy Hoffa movie to be released in December, and two AeroMax models. Also, local vintage truck owners will join the caravan along the way.
 The caravan will be in:
 -- Sharonville - Thursday, Aug. 13, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. at the Ford Sharonville Transmission Plant. The caravan will be displayed outside the plant and refreshments will be served. To reach the plant, take the Sharon Road exit east off of I-75. The plant is located at 3000 Sharon Road.
