built, not bought
I thought about going to that one but it would be a bit of a drive for me and as hot as its been im not sure I could stay long enough to justify the admission & parking cost. I did go to a small-town festival in forest ohio, they had a car show and 1 ranger was there. A gen 1 reg cab shortbed, 2wd with a 302/5speed. from the looks of the shifter id say it was from a mustang. meant to get a picture of it after the parade but had a bite to eat instead and forgot about it until I was halfway home

Good enough
What a shitty representation of a v8 swapped 1st gen at a show..

I admire the willingness to show it, but damn, what a POS.

There was a 2004 Ranger at a local used car lot for a while here recently that had a set of Outlaw II style rims on it. I laughed every time I drove past it, thought about buying it a few times too, but I don't need another vehicle right now.

turbine wheels seem the hardest to find, I found one set that was for a camaro but it was 2-14” s and 2-15”s. Id rather not run adapters and have all 4 same size
