Default The Story of my Ranger

My Story Of My 300ex to Ranger
Well i had a 97 300ex before i sold it. I sold it bout a month ago. I could have sold it for more but i got $760 for it. It needed valve guides bad cuz it smoked when first started and when reved on. The carb wouldnt stop leaking and the body was beat all to h*ll but overall it was a good running four wheeler that was probably the best one i had ever had. Before i sold it i put on a new chain - tie rod ends - sprokets so i mean he didnt get ripped. Ive got in so much trouble for riding on road and all sorts of stuff and it taken me every where i wanted it to go but it was worth it.

Im just turned 16 so i needed a vehicle so i looked and looked untill i lucked up and found me a 87 Ranger 2wd 5 speed 4 cylinder long bed. Well just so happen my dads 98 Ford Mustang GT got repazaed.

(The man told him he was late on his payments but my dad when back and rechecked and he was only a month late but come to find out the day after the buy here pay here car lot and done had the mustang sold so the man was just thinking i can get some easy money here so he must of already had it sold and thats why he picked it up)

Any way since he needed a vehicle i went a gave him the truck so he would have something to drive. I like the truck but it was a long bed which i didn't like so he got that.So i went looking again and found a couple trucks but they tried to scam me cuz they either had a bad title or had a bad motor{Went drove an hour to look at one to} or run hot. So when i was about to give up just so happen i found a 88 Ranger 2wd 5speed short bed v6. So the dude wanted $1300 for it but i got it for $900. Well after getting it, I found out that it needs about $300 dolllars worth or parts to get it road legal and safe.
1}Tie Rod Ends
2}Valve cover gasket
3}Heater Core
5}Head/Reverse Light
6}Shifter Bushing Repair Kit

It runs pretty good but it ideals kinda funny but smooths out after a while.

The trucks I went looked at was:
Chevy S-10: Dude said he put a new motor in it but it didnt have no power to move so skipped on that one.

90 Ranger: I drove it around the parkin lot and runned good but while i was driving it the man told my mom it runned hot so i skipped on that one.

Mazda B2200: It runned good and everything and i was so close to buying it when we went to tag office the man didn't even have title in his name and he oned the truck for like 5 months so passed on that one.

But for $900 dollar truck it not a bad deal so sorry for being long and thanks for reading.
