Default mini meet, working on my friends '95 he just bought

My good buddy Rob (seen in pics) has always been a Chevy guy, well I talked him into buying a Ranger. Well it's day 3 and he loves it.. truck is a 2.3L XLT 107,000 miles. runs like a top.. Today we tackled cluster swap w/tach and addressed some other issues like wipers not working and a bunch of blown bulbs.. and I gave him my old Tonneau cover.. He should be joining soon..

Same happended to me...

I was the "black sheep" of the family, since the early 20s there were only Fords (beggining with a model "T".... yes, you read right!)

192x Ford T (pick-up truck and a sedan), 1929 model A (special sedan), 1937 Ford V8 coupe, 1951 Ford F-1 pickup, 1957 CrownVictoria, 1962 Ford F100, 1963 Mercury Comet, 1969 Ford F-100.. also a couple of Escorts (some american, some british)

Im back in the family business now

Not a bad looking truck. Good shape for how old it is.
