Nothing But A Good Time-and A Hard Working Truck. — Loved the 302 V8, wish that would've been a factory option. Great performance in the straightline as well as when the curves got tight. Being so customized does lead to some headaches the rare occasions it had issues. Great looks, a real sleeper. Fuel mileage was horrendous-but considering how it was tuned for maximum power, expected. Most fun vehicle I've ever had.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Power, fun, joy.

Cons: Nothing.

It's A Fun Cheap Old Truck. — It's stock, it was cheap,it's 21 years old, im gonna do some body work to it, gets sideways nicely, fun in the snow and fun off-road. accelerates, brakes, handles fine for an old small truck. the only thing wrong with it is the windshield washer doesnt work, havent changed the fuse no big deal, interior is gonna get changed to a two seater instead of the 3/4 split. costs about $60 to fill it up 400km to a tank.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheap

Cons: it was a work truck needs some tlc

It Is Worth It If You Would Like And Older Truck That Is Good To Maintain. — being a truck that was not built for speed but rather a comfortable drive I feel it deserves 5 stars across the board. It had great gas mileage, it had some get up and go and the appearance was amazing, if properly maintained.

Pros: cheap and easy to maintain

Cons: no reason

Good Vehicle — Amazing 25+ MPG with the fuel injected 2.3 liter. OK power with the 5 spd. Very few problems with this vehicle. Put over 20k miles on it in less then 2 years and only replaced a couple sensors, never left me stranded.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas mileage, hauling stuff

Cons: not many

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Big and loud

Cons: sloooooow

I Like It — Nice fun truck to drive around in. Good performance from the V6 thanks to the 4.30 gears in the back. Decent on fuel, 21 mpg in the city. Long box can hold lots of stuff. 360,000 kms and it runs good and strong.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Want something reliable

Cons: If you need to seat more than 2 people.

1990 Ford Ranger - Xlt La Grange Edition — La Grange is a very unique vehicle. I bought her for 800 bucks in Flagstaff, Arizona figuring that she might last me through the winter. (assuming I got myself some snow tires.) Well, she's still alive and well today. She has her problems, but she's old enough to smoke if you know what I mean. I never got those snow tires, and she did fine in the snow. That little motor runs like a ...boring dream. Someone asked me if she runs good. I said, "Well, she runs...I don't know about the good part." I think that summarizes how I feel about La Grange...but I wouldn't sell her...unless the price was right.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handling, Gas Saver, Roomy Interior

Cons: Falling apart, creaky dashboard.
