First off, I never thought I would own a truck, not to mention a ford. But, when I was car shopping, one of my co-workers told me about his 2001 ranger. Not being interested at first, I said thanks but no. A few days later, I asked him about it, and he told me more about it. It had 205K on it. I was very skeptical of the high mileage, but what the heck, and gave it a test drive. It ran perfectly, not to mention the amazing looks. A few days later, I went and picked it up.
That was over a year ago, and I am still in love with my first Ford. It has over 230K on it, and only had to have the belt, alternator, and a pulley replaced, easy stuff. I’ve done some mods since, fog lights, tinted the front windows to match the back, corner lights, taillights.
This truck is a dream come true, and it always feels like a gift to drive it. =]
