PHOTO & FEATURE OP: VINTAGE TRUCK CARAVAN ROLLS THROUGH TAMPA

 PHOTO & FEATURE OP: VINTAGE TRUCK CARAVAN ROLLS THROUGH TAMPA
 Truck lovers in Tampa, Fla., will soon get the chance to witness part of a unique 75th anniversary celebration. Photographers and feature writers are invited to attend:
 WHEN: Saturday, Aug. 22; 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
 WHERE: Union 76 Truck Stop, Tampa, Fla. (Take I-75 to
 Highway 4 West, go one mile to Highway 301 North);
 Phone 813-623-1548.
 WHAT: An exhibition of vintage trucks on a caravan
 traveling the length of I-75 -- from Sault Ste.
 Marie, Mich., to Fort Myers, Fla. The caravan
 stops at the Tampa truck stop before heading to
 its final destination in Fort Myers.
 WHO: Tampa-area vintage truck owners have been invited
 to meet the caravan, bring their trucks and be
 available for interviews.
 NOTE: The caravan is commemorating the 75th Anniversary
 of Ford Motor Company's permanent entry into truck
 manufacturing. It includes a vintage 1917 Model
 TT truck, 1928 Runabout Pickup, 1949 F-Series
 pickup, 1936 Ford highway tractor scheduled to
 appear in a Jimmy Hoffa movie to be released in
 December, and two Kentucky-built AeroMax trucks.
 Three "new kids" (Ford Explorer, Mercury Villager
 and an F-150 Flareside) are accompanying the "old
 timers" on the freeway.
 FUN FORD FACTS: It would take 704,000 1917 Ford Model TT trucks
 put bumper-to-bumper to span the 1,800-mile length
 of I-75 -- but "only" 310,000 AeroMax 120s to
 cover the length of the interstate.
 CONTACT: Anne M. Booker, 404-577-2277, or Jim Trainor,
 313-594-1700, both of Ford Motor Company.
