I tried to buy one of those engine & transless, but the dealership wouldn't sell me it. I told them to order it & pull the engine & trans to put into a warranty vehicle, as I didn't want the LAME 305 & T250......stickered @ $10k & I toldem I buy it as a roller for $5K. They said NO!

I personally am not a fan of cars period. There useless. This thing is old and shit brown in color. So what if its got a built engine, blah, blah, blah. It will DRINK the gas. My feeling is you want this for some type of "cool" factor to impress your friends or whatever. Keep the ranger, at least it is functional past just a people mover

----------

A buddy of mine sold his 2002 exploder, that was very nice btw. To buy a 98 pontiac trans am. He wanted it to "pick up chicks" he said. How gay. That car is a P.O.S and now he needs to move back to AZ and cant figure out why he got this car, he cant haul any of his shit. I so wanted to say. "told ya so" !!! hahahahahaha

I could really car less about the "cool factor" but I do like the old muscle I have 2 gallons of a metallic pearl paint that i could put on it, my buddy and I just got done with his Monte and it turned out like this, I just like fast, as we all know the ranger doesn't have this quality
