Default An ol' friend

An old guy here wanting to put a 1987 Ford Ranger back on the road. This ol' girl was originally pruchased new by my dad. Besides being a jack-of-all-trades, dad loved all things mechanical, doing almost all his own work. I recall a time when dad complained about the floor shift socket having to be replaced more than once. The cause? Plastic! In his typical style, he hogged out a new one - out of aluminum. The Ranger is much older now, having been passed on to my son, and making a very pleased grandpa. Grandson drove it several years until it wouldn't pass California Smog test. Last 4 yrs she's be a resident of my "back forty". Well it's time to put this girl back in service. With 117K miles, I think she has more to offer.
