Default hello from lower Alabama

Got this 88 Ranger 2.3 5 speed, for $600, and it was is rough shape, leaked everywhere, had a exhaust pipe so rusted up it looked like a machine gun barrel, and alot of little fix its, most of the stuff was tighten a bolt here, a simple gasket or two.

I was very susprised that the engine looks brand new inside, no oil burning, interior was pretty darn good needed a good cleaning, needs a paint job tho.

turns out i drive this thing more than anything i own

other horses in the barn
2005 Honda Accord V-6
1989 Chevy Camaro V-8
2001 Harley Sportster 883
1995 36' Thor Residency Motorhome 460 Ford w/ Gale Banks System

it aint much to look at but here ya go
