Default newbie from England - thats old England in the UK

Hi to all Ranger owners / drivers and those that like to oggle and dream !
My name is Chris, aka Maxi and I live in the UK. I'm 40ish and I am now on my 9th Ranger.
Got the bug when they first came on the market in the UK about 1998. Since then I've gotton a new one every 1/2 years. Trouble is they keep updating the things. Would you believe there is a new one due out in Europe/UK later on in the year. go here http://www.zercustoms.com/news/2011-Ford-Ranger.html
I work for the MoD (DoD in US) and my job takes me over Europe and of course throughout UK.
Dont have much in the way of hobbies but was until about 5 years ago sooooooooo into Jeeps. All finished now though.
The current truck was brand new registered on 4th March 2011 and is Ford Storm Black OR Mazda Metallic Mica (same colour)

Engine is 3 ltr Diesel, 4 door double cab, 5 speed and and is bog standard. No doubt I'll be adding facts and figures as I go along.

I do hear tell that diesel rangers are a rarity in the US as are 4 doors. Well, like in the UK Gas powered Rangers are deffo a no go, ALL diesel. We do have 2 door versions as well.

I will post some pics very soon when I find out how. catch you all later.
Chris
