You may recall a story from earlier in the month in which an upstanding citizen and Ford Super Duty owner named Chris Johnson used his truck to free a big rig from the snow in upstate New York.

Mr. Johnson’s Good Samaritan deeds didn’t stop there; according to Time Warner Cable News, the welder and handy Ford Super Duty owner pulled around 30 to 40 vehicles free from the deep snow, on top of a few semi trucks. His story – and the video that accompanied it – went viral, garnering national attention, even to the point that Ford CEO Mark Fields himself thanked Mr. Chris Johnson for his deeds.

“I was kinda caught off guard,” Johnson told TWC News. “They just thanked me, thanked me for being a Ford fan and good job and appreciate that business.” Ford even sent Johnson a package containing hats, gloves, and shirts.

Chris Johnson’s truck is a 2003 Ford Super Duty King Ranch which he purchased used about three years ago. He told TWC News that when his house is paid off, he hopes to buy a newer model, “probably” a Ford.
