Welcome to the forum!

I'll try not to hold that Ford thing against you. ;)

Hi and welcome.

I smashed my Ford Ranger back in 2003. People complained about the truck and how bad I was hurt. But hey, who knows I may have been killed in something else!
I can't drive now. But it's a shame they stopped making the Ranger (in the U.S.).
There are still a lot of them on the roads though.

It's interesting: What makes one a "Ford guy" or "Chevy guy" or name your own preference? Is it what your dad liked when you were a kid? Is it bad experiences with one/good experiences with the other?

Guess for me, my dad was always kind of a Ford guy....and I've always liked them too. My 2 brothers like Chebbys tho, so who knows LOL.

Welcome. I have a 1968 Ford Galaxy 500 convertible. It's candy apple red with a black top and interior. It has the glass rear window.

Best small truck ever made, not even close. I have owned three now and put a total of 488,000 miles on them over the course of 27 years. My first in 1990 and I still own my third, an FX/4 with 150K on the clock and looks and runs like brand new. That is it in my avatar. She's a beauty, long paid for and owes me nothing.

Sorry for highjacking the thread, but I figgered Stigger the welder would enjoy the tale.

For me, I started out liking Ford Mustangs. The best pony car of all time, IMHO. I still like them but have no need for one.

After buying my first Ranger, an 88 model in 1990 I quickly realized how easy they were to work on. Rugged as hell with a box frame in the front. A brake job literally takes minutes to do. Nothing goes wrong with these trucks if properly maintained. Very easy to mod with Mustang and Explorer goodies. I have the overhead console I installed from a junkyard Explorer, Explorer bucket seats and center console and this summer, a rear disc brake conversion from a SN95 Gen 4 Mustang. That would be 1994-2004 era for you non Ford types. :biggrin:
