I have loved ford ranger my whole life. 1988 ranger was the first automobile i drove and i remember it well. I was just old enough to push the clutch in and bomb around on my grand fathers back fields. I bought my first ranger at age 21. It was an old 2wd
with the 2.0. Not the truck i remembered my grand fathers 2.3 being.. I bought another 2.0 when my fist stopped running. I ran that for a year then sold it for what i bought it for. I then owned another old one but not for long. I kept looking for one to compete with the memories of my grand fathers old one, or my buddie 2.9v6 he had in school. I few weeks ago i finaly found it. In Maine it is getting very hard to find an old style, or new style for that matter, ranger in good shape. I can across a 1988 2wd
2.9 five speed long bed on the coast. I was able to buy it right and man do i love it. I love teh power, the feel and the way it looks. It had a custome paint job, been lowered, after market wheels, dual exhaust and some other custom things done to it. I am not done with it, i have a list of things i will do to it when money allows, for now, i am just having a blast driving it. I hope to share that some passion with my 6 kids. I am now 32, work as a corrections, and police officer, but motor oil still runs through my veins and alwasy will.
