Default Not a Ranger but a Ford with a Vulcan!

When I got my Ranger I put pics up on TCCA but didn't put any pix of the Taurus on here so now I will, lol.

It's a 1997 GL (the mid-level sub-model) with a very uncommon option package which is why it caught my eye back in '08: Leather seats (which inc. a pwr lumbar for the driver's seat) and a FACTORY sunroof. I have probably seen 3-4 more with the same rare package, all 97's The dirt is all from me, it was immaculate when i got it. I plan on giving it to my brother in a few months, his current car (a 95 Chevy Lumina) isn't doing too well.

Yes, but they don't have the best reliability record when it comes to the FWD trannys. But honestly, if you keep them cool and clean fluid in them they should be fine.

Those both had pretty decent trannys. Fords worst would probably be the Contours with 4-cyl/auto, worst tranny ever (by ford)
