Keep on truckin'


If you follow us via our social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube), then you probably know about our partnership with A.R.E. Accessories for the construction of a project truck. The truck is set to debut in a couple of weeks at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show 2010 in Las Vegas.

{GALLERY}We've been excited about the project from its inception but the thrill has only increased as we've been sharing the construction process with our followers. Though the official debut is coming up in Las Vegas, we were treated to a sneak peek of the completed F-150 last Friday. Representatives from A.R.E. arrived, literally, at our front doors with the brand new F-150. We were proud to show it off as the one-of-a-kind machine garnered immediate attention from our curious visitors.

From the custom paint to the Wilson leather adorning the interior, the purpose of the Ford F-150 is to promote the Hall of Fame's mission to honor individuals who've made outstanding contributions; preserve pro football's historic documents and artifacts; educate the public; and promote the positive values of the sport.

Elements indicative of the Hall of Fame and our mission have been worked into the vehicle:

• Custom paint including a silhouette of the Hall of Fame building and Pro Football Hall of Fame Field at Fawcett Stadium.
• A remodeled interior featuring "pigskin" leather and material resembling the gold Hall of Fame jacket.
• An inner sidewall wrap in the bed of the truck showing the Hall of Fame Gallery.
• Hall of Fame memorabilia displayed in the bed of the truck.
• The tonneau cover features dozens of signatures of Hall of Fame members.

While many of you won't make it to Las Vegas for the SEMA Show 2010, be sure to follow @F150ProFballHOF on Twitter as the truck will take to the road to be displayed at football games and auto shows across the United States. It will also be here next summer for our annual Enshrinement Festival events.

Need some new wheels? At the conclusion of the promotional tour, the truck will be auctioned off to benefit the Hall of Fame Museum, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit museum and a portion of the proceeds will go to SEMA Cares charities, ChildHelp and Victory Junction Gang Camp.
