Well i got to thinking about it today and i have not posted any pics of my other love. Customizing and restoring cars is my other passion. Right now i only have two projects. LOL yeah only two. First is one i am doing with my father its a 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Originally had a 3.8 V6 auto we are putting a 350/ 350 auto combo in it. I built the engine this last semester nothing special 2 barrel should give about 200 hp. The other project is my daily driver the ranger. The other comments talk about the truck.

Every exterior piece on this truck will be from a 1964 ford vehicle. Still have not decided upon door handles or rear bumper.

The engine in the truck has been modified slightly. It is a 3.0 v6 5 speed. It has manifolds back 2 in exhaust into a single 3 in converter to 3 in borla muffler with 3 in tail pipe. Mustang GT throttle body fully ported upper and lower intake manifolds with a short ram intake. I get about 27 to 28 mpg highway. before i was at 21. I have not tested it since i lowered it. I am hoping for about a 1 mpg increase. People say but its a ranger and i say so what. Its fun to drive. Little scarey when it rains.
