Smile Makes you feel good when...

So i was sitting in the Tim Hortons tonight with my dad drinking our coffees and a guy with his girlfriend pulled in the parking lot (he was driving a Pontiac sunfire or something) as he came into the parking lot he saw my truck and i saw his face go so he pulled up beside my truck and checked it out for a few minutes then he looked in the window and saw me with a smile on my face and he gave me a big Thumbs Up!

It made my night, it really makes all the hard work worth it when you get people complimenting your truck like that

First one today!
A lady pulls up on my left at a red light, asks Does your Ranger do good in the snow?
I say Yeah, it does great! Especially with these tires.
She says I'm thinking about getting one for my son - better go, you'll miss your light...

Nice...

there are so many damned rangers in the Twin cities, that NOBODY comments on them no matter how nice the truck looks. Once I gave another Ranger driver the "thumbs up" and he just looked at me like "wtf" ? I guess if you see so many Rangers on a daily basis, they just aren't worth giving a "thumbs up" to.
I have to admit, once, when I was about 100 miles north of the twin cities, at a gas station, a couple of teens (16-18 age range) said "Nice truck."

I always take crap at work for my truck being "little". But in all honesty, I know this truck has worked harder then all of theirs combined, and took it all in stride, and kept ticking. I love it when someone gives me a thumbs up for the truck. It's one thing from you guys, but it's always more exciting from someone who has no interest in these trucks other then it caught their eye

There are lots of Rangers around here. I can go anywhere any time of the day and spot Rangers.

The other day I got an obligatory head nod from another Ranger driver and I'm stock. Hmmm, maybe he was about to throw up in his lap. Lol!
