  This page is of the 1985 Ranger, in the hands of the 3rd owner with a 302 from a Mustang. He also said, he's going to run it at the track. This page, when he sends me the pictures, will be of his modifications, track runs, and what ever pictures he sends... I wish him good for the old 85. Just think: It lives on. Without my hard work, it would probally be some beater truck somewhere. Hauling some washer machines, bed angle, and dents all over it. I am glad it went to a someone whom is worthy of owning it. Keep sending pictures!.

  This page started on May 03, 2012. When he picked up the 85.... The dates next to the pictures are when I uploaded and included the pictures into the web site. I do not know when these pictures were taken.

  Latest update: Bought some american racing torq thrust 2s off someone on craigslist, brand new never use and new tires. I'm going to flare the rear fenders outwards and will most likely need to paint the bed afterwards.

I just rebuilt the top end of the truck with new roller rockers, push rods, roller lifters, gaskets etc. I installed some traction bars in the rear end as well. I took it to the track for the first time ever past Tuesday to tune it and it runs great. Ran a 14.09 for my final run. I could easily hit mid 13s if I find a new axle and stiffen the rear up some more.
