I'm nearly 84 years old and have owned over 100 vehicles, starting with a 1929 cut-down '29 Chevy which I bought for $25.00 in Miami, Florida. My second car was a 1939 Lincoln four-door sedan with a V-12 engine that leaked at least one gallon of oil every hundred miles. I bought that car for $75.00 when I was 14 years old. It's the car I used to drive my mom and sister back to Syracuse, N.Y. That car died in the winter of 1950 from a broken rear axle which I couldn't replace. My next Ford was a '39 black coupe. I loved that car. I used to decorate it with ribbons on high school football days. I didn't get another Ford until 2000, a little Ford Ranger 4X4 which I gave to my son. That Ranger was killed by my grandson who had taken it four-wheeling without his dad's permission and turned it over, completely smashing it on a mountain trail. Now I own a Ford Ranger again, one I bought yesterday (3 August 2018), a 2011 basic model with the 2.3 engine, a simple little white one-owner truck with almost no bells and whistles. I like it. I'm a retired university professor and a once academic vice chancellor of a state university system. I served in the Marine Corps and have worked in many different occupations during a long life. It's good to be here. I'm looking forward to reading Ranger-related posts, especially those related to maintenance. Komac

Komac, good to have you here. Last December I picked up my first Ranger, and it seems it is much like yours. A basic 2.3 liter 5 speed work truck. Not the best on fuel, however it gets used to haul stuff all the time. So far no issues other than what my daughter has caused!

Good morning, my name is Mark. Hope I can help a Ranger enthusiast that may be in the middle of a restoration or other Ranger project. Been retired for six years keeping myself plenty busy, and I thought I’d “extra” time lol.
