40 Reasons the Ford Atlas Concept is My Dream Truck

This past week Colby and I got a look the the Ford Atlas Concept truck. This is one of those vehicles that has almost everything you can think of on it… but will never actually make it into the consumer’s driveway. But, that does not stop this pickup truck lovin’ girl from drooling over it.
