Welcome to the forum. The truck model bearing that name is the subject of one of my favorite car stories. As seen in Car and Driver's 2004 "10Best" issue:

Quote
Fuss Over a FISO

I was working on the service desk at our local Ford dealership when a young blond-haired girl walked in and reported that she was here to drop off her boyfriend's Ford Fiso truck for service. At the time, we were also servicing Mitsubishi Fuso trucks, so I asked her if that was the kind of truck she was talking about.

"No," she said, it was definitely a Ford Fiso truck. I said I'd worked for Ford for 17 years and had never heard of a Ford Fiso truck.

Now she was obviously getting irritated that I was insulting her intelligence, and she told me matter-of-factly that she personally had seen thousands of Ford Fiso trucks all over the place and invited me out to the parking lot so she could show me a Fiso truck. She marched me to the truck and exclaimed, "See, I told you so!" as she pointed to the emblem on the front fender that read "F-150."

Welcome from Southwest Missouri!

Because of the way FedEx routes their flights from East Asia, I am typing this on a machine that had to go through that city's airport recently.

Anchorage? Yikes! Can't imagine how short your day must be right now! About 9h 15m here south of Hartford, CT. I've only been as far west as Bedford Park, IL by Chicago way.
