Default Welcome to Mayberry

If ya'll dont know, I live in Mayberry--The REAL Mayberry. You know....Andy Griffith, Barney Fife, Opie, Aunt Bea!? However the show was really filmed in Beverly Hills but the fictional town of Mayberry is based on Mount Airy, NC-Where I live. If you have ever watched the show, you have heard of places like Mount Pilot, floyd's Barber Shop, Snappy Lunch, Wally's Service Station...well we have them all. Of course Andy doesnt live here any more, he moved to Manteo a while ago.

Anyhow I have been wanting to get some pics of the truck by Wally's Service Station for a while now, but never could get the truck cleaned up in time before dark, so yesterday i skipped the gym, went and cleaned her up and took some pics. This is not open, its just really a tourist attraction for pics...lol

The sun was not workling for me, but the sky in the background was, it looked awesome!

Some real nice pics. Brings ya back in time.

Hey just noticed you have the factory color matched side mouldings on your truck, sweet. I asked for that option when I bought my truck and the salesmen looked at me with a blank stare, and said it is an unavailable option. Come to think of it I have not see that option on a Ranger around these parts (just in the Ranger brochure). I'm going to be looking harder for it now lol.

I dont like them on the older rangers because they are usually not color matched. But i do like them on mine; it gices the sides a little more character. I noticed that on the original window sticker (I am 2nd owner of truck) that is a $60 option. Had i bought the truck new and ordered it, i wouldnt have them

Ya I figured they'd protect the doors from door digs. And still look good. I really like it on your truck. And would like to have them on mine to, I'm jealous of your truck now. For sure if they weren't color matched, I wouldn't want them either.
