1985 Ranger regular cab, 2.8L, atx, all stock, drove while we were building up the '83.

1983 Ranger regular cab

5.0L swap
35 inch tires
fiber glass fenders and hood
full roll cage through the whole truck
no bed (just the fenders)
full spare in the bed
8 off road lights (4 on front bumper, 4 above roof on roll bars)
93 explorer front end conversion (or second gen ranger conv, same thing)

pretty much it was a desert racing truck that me and my dad started building when we lived in Cali. Finished it when we moved to GA and now one of my buddy's owns it and turned it into a pile of s. Makes me sad everytime i see it.

93 turbo saturn SL2.

remember that building a car shouldn’t come from parts it should come from deep inside your soul. let the car speak for all the emotions, memories and experiences youve made and the car will take a life of its own. truth over fame.
