1978 Ford Ranchero — This 300hp, 6025lb's, Ranchero truly stands out from the crowd. With all the curves in the body and just the stance of the car makes it look mean behind it. This car is NOT a fast car if you were to put it up to a true muscle car, a Honda it can handle. This beast gets 7 mpg around town and 16-17 mpg on high way. I just recently had to replace the original ball joints on it. parts are not really costly it's finding them is the hard part. It's really fun in the snow, rain, ice, and I've run over some old mail boxes and didn't even feel them (long story) This car/truck or catruck is fun smooth and sounds bad ass with my 40 sires flowmasters is a real head turner.

Pros: smooth, big(tank), rare

Cons: slow and horrble gas milleage
