Toonces drives a Ranger . . . . just not very well.
It needs to 'lean' into the wind for better reception. (y)
Silly me; I was thinking that it was bent forward because the truck brakes better than it accelerates.

It was thick burger Thursday at Hardee's today so here's my official entry.

2nd set of front clip panels, 2nd set of doors, 3rd box, original cab. Bought it in 2014 for $800 from a towing company, the previous owner broke or lost the rear driveshaft and drove around in front wheel drive until everything got really "loose...." I've been daily driving it ever since, I've put just over 50,000 miles on it since '14 and have replaced just about everything at some point which included rebuilding the engine and trans. The rust is getting pretty bad, my plan is to retire it to spare vehicle status in about a year.

Another worthy candidate!

. . . This is shaping up to be tough voting decision.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

I'm digging it. Let's see if we can make this better. Are you willing to pose the truck and submit a few more photos? Nothing on the hood. Pose it with a background like it was being featured in a Magazine, and try not to cast your shadow in it.

Thanks!

I see you've edited the rules posting. So, no need to go to a fast food restaurant to prove it's roadworthy and being driven?

Haha, I'll see what I can do. I probably look worse than the truck, I might make it look better?

Maybe call it the "One Foot In Club"

Meaning your Ranger has one foot in the grave.

The fun part of it... it can be spun different ways.
