  Okay so now, it's time to post some pictures dealing with car shows... Yes, Car shows, and why not?. But first, here's a couple of pictures of the display in the bed.

  Remember those pictures in the Stats page?. They go in the bed, along with some other 80's pick up truck stuff, that I will be collecting over the summer from yard sales and such. Hopefully, some people will offer some old childrens pick up toys to place in the bed for display... But for now, it's the Ford manuals. If you would like to donate anything for the bed, relating to Ford Rangers, any years, just let me know. Thanks.

Set up for a car show. The bed is lined with a childs road carpet, and the pictures from the stats page are vewable. Two old ranger shop manuals.

May 14, 2011. Cape May Coast Guard Car Show. The paint hasen't been touched yet, and the engine compartment hasen't been touched either. But I wanted to go to this one. The engine compartment is clean enough, but not show quality yet. Diden't win any trophies, but then I knew I woulden't. But It was fun for sure. You meet all kinds of people at these events and see all kinds of cars and trucks. Very nice time I had.

My fav of this meet. he should have shown up wearing a zoot suit and carrying a large realistic toy Tompson Sub machine Gun.

August 20, 2011. Show in Cold Spring Village. 720 rt. 9 South, Cape May NJ. This show was open to all, and I got to say, it was a nice one. Nice day, nice time. Nice weather. There was even some one whom wanted to know if the truck was for sale. After I told him the truck was appraised (for real) at $5,000.00 he kinda backed away. Diden't offer me a price. I have his card in case I have to sell.

I was almost in the back. Nice spot actually. Sat under trees, watched. Although the restaurant was pricey. I diden't eat there. Had a sandwitch brought to me. There was a real working blacksmith, basket weaver, Bakery (I wish I knew that for breakfast). And a few other hostoric long lost workers.

Right
This time I placed a mirrow under the front to show the suspension.

My fav of this show. Model A pick up truck.

Since I have another project, I desided to sell the 85. I can use some of the money for the 62, and some for the house bills... The new owner, is installing a 302 from a Mustang, and he plans to use it somewhat as a every day driver and run it a few times at the track. Now, he is supposed to send me pictures of the swap, and at the track. I am supposed to also go to the track when he has it running...

The next page is of the Ranger, in the third owners hands, with all the modifications done by him. When he sends me the pictures. It is Thursday May 03, 2012... When I receive the pictures I will post them on the next page. Should be exciting to see the 85 run at the track, and should be a knock out with a 302...
