Default Hello from Northern California

My name is Kurt and I have a 1998 Ranger with about 190,000 miles on it. When I bought it the odometer read 14,000. Most dependable vehicle I have ever owned, and I have owned a lot of them.

I am 63 years old, with a wife and two teenage daughters. (started the family a little later in life) Several years ago my first daughter took over the Ranger when she began to drive and then took it to Cal Poly when she started college. Usually I drive my 1972 Ford F-250 or one of the other vehicles I currently own (boring vehicles other than the F-250).

I started my working career at Mare Island Naval Shipyard and then moved to other fabrication shops. After about 12 years in the trades as a welder, at 31, I started college and I am now a community college counselor.

Currently working on a 65 El Camino and will be building a 65 Bucamino in the next year or so. the Bucamino will have 65 GS drive train, and the outside skin of a Skylark on an El Camino body shell. Trust me this all works if you have enough donor cars, and I do. Yes, I know, this isn't Ranger related, but it does tell you something about my obsession with cars and trucks! I am not brand loyal, I just like interesting and dependable vehicles.

Hey Bwad, I am in Lakeport, just over the hill from you. Well, actually two hours away. You just go to Williams on Interstate 5, turn left and keep going about 60 or 70 miles on Highway 20. We are on the north-west end of Clear Lake.
