Thumbs up August 2009 Street Truck Of The Month


I know what you're thinking, but yes, there really is a Ford Ranger under there.

Owner: Doorgunner
Vehicle: 1989/1936 (1989 chassis and drivetrain. 1936 fiberglass body/metal bed)
Engine/Transmission: Ford 2.9L V6/Automatic
Suspension: Lowered Ford Ranger

This is one of those builds that you'd really have to read to fully understand and appreciate. Find out more HERE.

Congratulations to our Truck Of The Month winners!

TRS members..........thanks for helping me with this little truck......most of you know my son Blake was gonna help me build it, but a drunk driver sent Blake to Heaven......

So you guys cheered me up & encouraged me to finish it, even though there were times I wanted to give up.....and I know Blake is looking down proud of the Red '36 Ford Ranger XLT........

Congratulations, doorgunner. Your truck, and its build, are an inspiration. I am really happy to see it getting the well-deserved recognition.

Dammit; I want one just like it! (except painted dark blue)

Congratulations. I've never posted in your thread on this build, but I have followed every page. Absolutely outstanding work!

FWIW, I don't think "of the month" does this build justice. At minimum, it should be truck of the year.
