Default Coolest Thing!

So the wife & I were leaving Safeway, just got in the truck and this old guy(70ish) knocks on my window. I roll down the window and he says, " This thing looks like it's doing 100mph sitting still. Good looking truck." I laughed out loud and thanked him for his comment. I enjoy getting compliments on the truck but from an old guy like that is special. I think we all enjoy it. Otherwise we wouldn't be here.

I've only had my Ranger about a month and 1/2, and i've already gotten a few compliments from older guys. I like talking to them because there is just so many vauable things you can learn from them. I mean just think if they are 75 or older, how much they've seen over the years. It's nice to take some time and and get to know some new people too.

haha. i love old people. they think all new cars are cool and sporty. i had a guy who works as a painter in a body shop say he really likes all the stuff i've done to my truck. It makes you feel good knowing that somebody who really doesn't know much about rangers appriciate what you're doing... if that makes sense. haha.

I've gotten a few looks at my truck, but since I always look like i'm about to kill someone, nobody has ever had the guts to approach me and tell me what they think of it.

I get compliments on the F100 all the time, even though it never leaves the yard.lol. Thanks internet!
