1998 Ford Ranger Super-cab XLT 4x4
1979 Pontiac Firebird Redbird
Head to Head
This was a decent truck when I got it 3 years ago, but not nearly as good as "The Little Red Rescue Ranger" my ex took from me. It has so many things wrong with it now that the "to do" list reads like a grocery list. Somehow this POS keeps going. When it quits, it's getting parted out (if someone doesn't buy it first)
1979 Firebird Esprit Redbird Edition. I purchaced this car in 1998 from a man at the Petit Jean Mountian Car Show
in Morrilton AR. It is featured in Marc Cranswick's Book Firebird the Auto-Biography (page 100). It has always been stored indoors. It gets alot of looks wherever I go in it.

Mods for “P*O*S”
Crashed in winter of 2005 because 4x4 kicked out and rear brakes failed. Wiped out entire left side. Replace with used parts. Interior lights and power windows quit working (driver's window mechanism replaced with manual unit). Speedometer quit working. Cruise-control quit working. Windshield wipers quit working. Arm-rest/console lid broke. Passenger seat adjuster handle broke off (now operated with vise-grips). Anything else goes wrong, I'm scrapping it and parting it out!
Mods for “Redbird”
I was told that the rear window louvers were added when the car was purchaced new... I like them, so they stay. I have seen a lot of the three piece rear louvers, but haven't seen any just like these.
