Other ford vehicles you have or had
#1
Hello everyone I was introduced to Ford vehicles about 30 years ago when I got a 73 maverick with a factory 302 at the age of 18. I loved that car and had alot of fun driving it and learning how to work on the car. I have had 5 -6 mustangs, a fairmont and currently own a 2000 Ranger 4x4 offroad edition, 1994 f350 7.3 IDI turbo diesel crew cab dually, 2005 explorer (wifes), 86 mustang LX (parts car), 1973 fastback (restomod project) and my 351w powered 1987 LX pictured in link below. I have been hooked on ford for many years but I like all American muscle cars and hope to have many more years of enjoyment from them. Please share what you have or have had in the past or present.

I have owned only Fords since I was 16. i had one exception once i owned a delta 88. I have had lots of rangers, broncos, bronco II's, a 93 mustang gt, 86 mustang lx, 76 mustang II, 71 mach 1, 72 convertible, 72 coupe, Couple f-150s and a 76 ford highboy. My wife wanted a new car few years ago and i told her she has 3 choices Ford Lincoln, or Mercury. She bought a 08 Mercury Mariner. But one of my favorite had to be my 89 bronco II. It was a blast!!!

We aren't going to include Pinto's here are we? I know this guy, met him once, he is from Escondido. He had like 14 of those things...and he is going to say how great those cars were...just wait and see.

Anyway:

1964 1/2 Mustang Convertible 260 V8 3 Speed.
1973 Mustang Fastback, 351C 2V, Auto
1970 XR7 Convertible, 351C 4V 4Speed Posi
1982 LN7, 1.6L 5 speed...very S L O W, but very reliable. I think this is the only car the wife didn't crash.
1979 E-100 Long Wheel Base Don't Come A Knockin...Black, with Cragars, 3 on the tree. Needed a clutch every 10k...and yes I do know how to drive a clutch.
1970 XR7 Coupe, 351W, Auto...virtually original.
1973 Mustang Convertible, born an I6, now a 302 4V, soon to be 351C 4V. Surprised the OO got an automatic with this, cheap guy. Intend on blowing up the trans and rear end soon after installing the new motor. Hopefully I will have video to post on how to blow up trans and rear end so your wife will let you buy a GOOD FAST trans and rear end.

Here are some that I have pictures of. The only picture that I have of the Ranchero is this one with the motorcycle in it. The 69 Fairlane was my second car, but my first Ford. We also have had a Windstar van that I have no pictures of and a Courier Pickup that was mostly Mazda. There was also an Escort that we bought for the daughters to drive. There was a 72 Mustang coupe that we bought for the wife to drive early in our marriage. I can's seem to find pictures of it either.

1976 Gran Torino Starsky and Hutch Factory Car one of 1000 or so. Still have it in need of resto. Drove it to college.

1996 Ford Ranger XLT Sport. Setup like a Splash but with regular bed. Only made in Spring of 96 with 4.0 5spd and 3.55. It was lowered 1.5 or more from stock 2wd Ranger from factory. Five spoke chrome wheels and 23560r15 on all 4 corners. It was like having a Mustang with a bed that truck would scoot.

2000 Ford Focus Se Sport Black. Wife totaled it.
2000 Ford SE Sport Silver. Replacement for the wrecked one.
She wanted auto since they were her cars but enjoyed the car as it was the first new car I ever purchased.

1996 Bronco XLT Sport All Black. 5.8 manual hubs and transfer case lucked into one without the crappy Electronic Shift and Hubs that always fail.

2005 Mazda 6 3.0 Hatchback. Steel Grey. Would still have it if she hadn't racked up all the miles for work until they finally got her company car. When I bought it Ford still had Mazda as one of it's car lines. Awesome car for the DD.

2007 Mustang GT Deluxe Black . 5spd 3.55 rear end no spoiler. Ordered the way I wanted it.

2011 Flex Kona Blue. Wanted one since they came out. Love it Daily Driver while 07 GT rests in Garage for good days.
