Posted the wrong pic, mine was a split bumper...



Mine was copper color, with black, not white.


I've based my opinion on working on them also. That Camaro was a royal fucking pain in the ass to do anything on, while my Mustang was 10 times easier. Main reason why I unloaded it and kept the Mustang. Made a profit, too! Every Ford I've ever ridden in was tight. the GM's in general drove with slop in the steering, move the wheel easy 10 degrees back and forth and the car never noticed. If you are a 'Chevy fan' why did you buy another Ranger and not an S10? Because they were junk?

so you had an rs/z28 then. I've worked on both and neither seemed to be much more difficult than the other. Usually the big blocks were more difficult just cuz there was less space, especially when trying to fit headers. And nope, just think the Rangers are so much better looking than their Chevy counterparts, including the Colorado. I've driven some colorados before and I had no complaints. Just like the looks of the Rangers more

I've found that I like both GM and Ford...I used to go with GM only and have owned quite a few over the years and a couple of Fords. The company I used to work for had a lot of Fords, mostly '70s and '80s and I've put hundreds of thousands of miles on them combined over the years and abused the shit out of them, so I've had a lot of experience with both brands.

I've seen good Fords and a couple of lemons...but I've also seen good GM trucks and a couple of lemons, so I don't think you'll go too wrong with either brand. The main reason I went with the Ranger, was their legendary reliability, but style and price had a roll. I do like the classic style of the Ranger and have never been crazy about the looks of the Colorado/Canyon, they look like they copied Toyota a little IMO. I have seen some nice ones, like a black one around here that's lifted with 33"s, but for the most part I think they're ugly.

Anyway, to keep this on topic, here's a flatbed Ranger I saw the other day:

Rode up to a car show/dyno day with some fellow Foci members. The black ST had a bigger turbo and a conservative tune and just look at those numbers!

Some from the car show.

I know Shaun loves these cars. Not an s14 but a Silvia with a front end swap.

And I'm pretty sure Brandon has a soft spot for Integras.

There are a lot of really clean ones around me. I believe one of them is turboed.
