Came out pretty cool Toby! LOL@Dave yeah a lot of the a/c units are roof top out here and I used to have to wire them. I don't miss that B) Most of them here in the nieghborhood have them but lucky my house has one on the ground. Back to the truck Toby I like the driveway view.

It came out GREAT, Toby. I especially like the driveway shot with the 'hood in the background. But, uh, I THINK that's an F series ford pickup. i have a 20001 Ford Ranger, and it's a small S-10 sized lil truck. Yours looks like a full size truck. Just an observation, caz it sure don't take a THING from your build. It came out GREAT!:unsure: :mellow: :huh:

In the late 70s and early 80s some of the full size ford were call Ford Rangers befor they came out with the midsize Ranger. Thank you for liking the build.

You have a 20,001 Ranger? :o :blink: How'd you get one so early? :unsure:

Are you sure there will even be a Ford Motor Company in the year 20,001? Let alone a Ranger? :huh: :blink:

But, thanks for setting Toby straight. We gotta keep the facts accurate here! ;)

Nice truck. The Ranger name has some history in Ford. The Marmon- Harrington 4x4 conversion on the panel truck was called the Ranger. The Ranger then became the entry- level Edsel. In the mid- 60's the name was used on a forward- control show truck.

All in good, clean fun! ;) It's always humorous when one gets caught with one's 'perfection' pants down whilest beating on someone else for not being 'perfect.' I know ... I've been there, too! :D ;)

It wouldn't be any fun if everyone was always perfect! :P

:lol:
