Long story so skip if you dont wanna read past 5 words lol

Emilie's Beetle was showing its age and VWisms lol so we decided that it would be best that she inherited my car and I bought my first truck (waited 6 yrs for one)... Want a Taco/frontier Manual Crew Cab. Found a few good used ones for early $20K with decent miles but It would be pushing my budget. I wanted some more in the teens and perferably newer then what I was finding.

Starting looking at extended cab Tacos that were more in my price range, but decided if I might as well go Extended cab, might as well go Ranger - Bseries. Started looking at used ones and the ones I liked were $16-$18K with 8.9% interesting ($355-$410 a month). Saw the rebate of Ford for $6,000 off and decided to price a new one. Well it came to just under $20,000 with 6.9%. Test drove a brand new Sport 4x4 black base ranger (had Ac and nothing else) and love it. Love the colour love the truck so I ordered my truck the way you see it today for $18,845 at $400 a month. Couldnt be happier perhaps an aftermarket exhaust lol

Would rather not state where I bought it from since I have had issues with that dealership and dont want to get annoyed with slander accusations lol

My 93 toyota corolla was at its last leg lol and i needed a car/truck bad so i was looking around town seeing if i can spot a nice looking ride on the street (private sale) with no luck i was thinking of going the dealership route but i DID NOT want a car note.... So i was telling my brother in law about it and he said he knew a guy that had a truck never owned a truck before this one so i went to go look at it and fell in love the truck was and is still not a looker ( hoping to change that) but this was a perfect ride for me.. 1993 Ford Ranger 4.0L ohv 2wd .......

My grandfather bought it from an old lady. Her and her husband bought it brand new in September of 2001. Her husband killed himself next to the truck in their garage. The memories were too painful for her and she had no use for the truck so she sold it. My grandfather bought it in August of 2004 with 17k miles on it. He paid a little over 14k for it. Due to his illnesses he stopped driving and gave the truck to me. And now that he's passed, I plan on keeping this thing as long as I can.
