Sorry to hear about your Ford truck. I have always liked Chevys myself. I have had a 1963 Ford station wagon, a 1958 Ford pickup, and now I have a 2000 Ford Ranger. It seems that you had a lemon. Most of these Rangers go for a long time. I sure hope mine does.

Re: More random pictures from the nets

I guess I'm a Chevy guy--grew up with them, but I'll have to go to bat for the Ford sedan with the 4.6 automatic like in my work car, nothing I have ever driven works that well--not even the Chevy Caprice!

Re: More random pictures from the nets

Sorry guys, I'm going to have to weigh in as a Ford man. I don't like to think that I have any particular loyalty to a company, but due to various factors I have ended up owning several Fords, and I really have no big complaints. I had a '98 Ranger, a '95 Crown Victoria, an '88 F-150, and currently have a '93 F-250 diesel. The Crown Vic was, I think, my favorite car ever. I got it at a police auction. That thing was bad-ass.

Have him take you for a ride at 160. Let us know how fast you got up to.

Re: More random pictures from the nets

Even my 49 Chevy will do very close to that speed...
Am kinda afraid to drive it over 140 with the stock front suspension.

Re: More random pictures from the nets

Just sold an 2007 Mustang GT, I got up to 145 mph before I backed out of it but it was still climbing......
Way to old for that stuff and way too many cops around these days... guess I'mm getting old because I have no desire to travel at 160 mph anymore...
I'm happy just to be moving.....
