Hi folks!

Way back when I had me a 2000 Single Cab XLT Flareside. Loved that truck.

Then, I bought an 88 Single Cab Longbed with a 302ci in her. Loved that truck, too.

But soon I got distracted by building classic VW's and then the economy tanked. No body wanted customized Bugs anymore and the bills piled up. So I sold all my toys. :cry:

But I swore that, one day, I'd own another Ranger.

When my wife wrecked my car 2 months ago I knew I had my chance. Ford finally brought back the best damned truck in the market and I wasn't about to let it pass me by.

"But we don't need a truck!" "You can drive my Leaf!" "I don't want to drive a truck!"

Blah blah blah.

Everyone needs a truck. I could feel my masculinity oozing out of myself every time I drove that car. The truck wouldn't be for her to drive.

In the end, I bought my truck.... <cough cough> and I bought the wife a new Rogue to smooth things over <cough> But never you mind that, good sirs!

I have my Ranger! Finally. And it is a blast. I just knew I'd love this thing. Best part? My boys love it too. Now the 12 year old is talking about his first car being an older Ranger.

Anyhoo, glad to be back among you guys.
