1957 Ford RancheroReview
$ 8500.00 — 390 CI Ford FE W/ 2V FMX auto manual drum brakes manual steering She runs warm on hot Colorado days..but when the sun goes down and it cools off....it really likes the "clean air! It corners much like the Titanic did when they snagged that iceberg. When you "throw out the anchor" in a panic stop, Satan screams in your ear! As my daddy told me, "Son, it looks good from far ...but...it sure is far from good! The fun factor is priceless, Gang! I wouldn't trade it for an oversized garage stuffed with shiny, Pacific Rim, jelly bean tuners!
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: People start conversations with you at redlights, you get endless "thumbs ups", and it is a "babe magnet" for girls with lotsa tatoos!
Cons: It needs disc brakes, a 5 speed and A/C!
