Default Re: How did you aquire your ranger?

my 89 f150 would just randomly break down a lot, and finally stripped the flywheel. so my dad said hed cosign for a new ford. hey, they seem reliable right?!

walked into a dealership, told them i want a truck with the two following criteria [after my dream truck, a vista blue 4l xlt with l/s] was "on a truck and we dont know where the truck is", ANY manual ranger. they ended up not having one, we sign the papers on one from a different lot and wait. well they managed to fuck up and give me an auto. we tore the contract up, threw it at them, and not even an hour later we have my baby

pretty much. the xlt was even manual. i told the guy i hate autos.

btw this was like over a 3 day span. thurs i go in, they didnt have the blue truck, I spot [me, the guy didnt see it on the lot ] a white xl manual on the lot that hadn't been PDI'd, come back friday, drive it and end up driving it home [guy takes it back] and "holding it for me", they sell it that night without calling or anything, then sat morning they dont have a truck for me.

march 2009 dad saw it on the side of the road coming back from fishing and told me about it so i went out there and bought her. Had everything i wanted for a first truck and i only had enough for the single cab. So i stoled her for $4,150 with 98k miles.

Saw it from the school bus window while i was still in high school. Went back later with my dad, and got it. Fell in love with the "Battering ram", as I called it then, on the front. haha.

i found my 95 in either michigan or indiana auto/rv. i was living in north central indiana, just graduated college, and my parents bought us a car when we graduated. so my mom and i went to MI to look at it, test drove it, put a deposit on it and drove it home.

I had a 97 that i bought from a RPS member. he wrecked it and was parting it out. Bought the hole things for parts. sold the engine/trans/rear to a local friend who put it in his 93. after a while of not talking and never getting my money, i bought his 93 for next to nothing (after learning he was selling it).

so that's how i got my 93 as well.

August 07, 2009, I bought my Truck from an Auction. The Auction was put on by the State Police, and they were Auctioning off Drug Seizured Vehicles. There were 2 rangers. One Red, extended cab, and One Blue, standard cab. Of course I wanted the Red one, but I only had $2,000 and the Red one went for $4,000. So when we got to the blue one, I asked my mom to bid on it for me. I finally got it for $1,700.
