Default my first, my last, my only....Ranger

Hey!
After 14 years of owning my Ranger I finally joined a forum. It was my first car...1987 Ranger, 2.9L V6 with a 5 speed. She's my baby, and at some point I vowed never to sell her. I thought someday I'd drop a 302 in, but as the V6 has never let me down and never lost any get up and go I thought "let's see how many miles I can get out of her." Since I started storing the truck in the winter (I live in Wisconsin), the miles don't pile on as fast. It has 160K on it right now. I had the truck custom painted and put on some aftermarket wheels when I was 16, other than that the truck is pretty much stock. The cherry bomb muffler really purrs, and the truck is overall super clean inside and out. It was a lady killer in high school, now it's just a cool old truck.
Anyway, I'm here to share knowledge and experience from owning and maintaining my Ranger for half my life, and learn too. Looking forward to getting to know my Ranger brethren.

I worked my way through college at a mom and pop repair shop, wrenching and driving a tow truck. Before I left I thought it would be cool to get some pics of the Ranger on the rollback, for memories sake. The Ranger was fine and boarded the flatbed on its own power.
