Finally bought a commuter

Yeah I finally broke down and bought a bomber for back and forth to work. I still kept it in the family though.

I got a '88 Ranger 2wd, Extended Cab, 5spd, with the 2.3l. Not a bad little truck for back and forth to work and the occasional trip around town.

Not bad, a few dents and such. New clutch, headgasket, and brakes.

The bad, gas gauge doesn't work, needs a tune up and possibly timing adjustment.

Eh it works for what I want it for which is going back and forth to work. I will put some money into it before I give it to the oldest this summer for her car though.
