Well, first came my project truck that I still have and will never get rid of. 1980 Ford F100 Ranger Lariat. Had a 4.9 300 and a C6. Looked like it was headed to the junkyard, and would have if I hadn't picked it up. Bought it for $400.



And how it looks now. Currently is powered by nothing, I pulled the 300 and the C6 out to ready it for a 400 and a big block C6.





Then came my 2000 Ranger Sport Long bed. 2.5 Lima, 4R44E. Had it for two and half weeks before some drunk dipshit crossed into my lane and forced me into a wooded area. Took the left front of the truck and pushed it into the cab. Sold it off, and then saved up for a year and a half until I could find my next truck.




After I had that Ranger, I really got into Rangers. After looking through so many, I decided that I wanted an 01-03 Supercab Edge 4dr 4x4 in Oxford White. Looked for a year or so, and saved up money at the same time. Finally, I stumbled across my 03 on a calling, something told me to look up a certain dealership's site, and when I did, I found my 03 at the top of the Ford section. Went to look at it on a Sunday, test drove it every day for a week, and then bought it the following Saturday. Didn't get 4x4, but being an Edge, I can always swap that in later.

I had '81 almost identical to that I bought from a co-worker for $50.00 to take it off his hands. It needed a clutch, rear spring, and a little TLC.
About 6 weeks later after fixing it up, I was offered $900.00 for it.
SOLD!

Got any pics? lol.

Mine needs every system gone over. The brakes are shot, it needs a new 400/C6 combo, the rear gear ratio is just pitiful (2.75:1), the wiring is 32 years old so I'm gonna completely rewire the truck, and there are a few spots of rust on the body that need to be addressed.

Took a while to dig up the actual pics, but here is my line-up:

1968 VW. Bought it in 1982 for $300 and sold it 3 years later for $200 with 120K miles on it. I loved that car, but it tried to kill me.
1968 VW Beetle.jpg

1989 Cavalier. Bought it brand new and sold it 13 years later with 225K kilometres on it. Basic transportation, but it owed me nothing. For all I know, the guy who bought it is still driving it.
1989 Chevy Cavalier.jpg

1993 Mazda B2200. Bought it in 2002 and sold it in 2006 with 140K kilometres. My first truck... a beater, but a reliable one.
1993 Mazda B2200.JPG

2000 Malibu. Bought it new and traded it in 2010 with 120K kilomteres. My first "fancy" car - loaded with bells and whistles. It spoiled me forever when it comes to the option lists.
2000 Chevy Malibu.JPG

The current fleet. 2006 Ranger and 2010 Fusion.
