Had a realistic Dream about my First Ranger last night.
Ok, I have no idea why I am posting this here, but it has been on my mind all morning. I have been taking some new prescription pills for my insomnia that I have been having for a few years now, well a Side effect has been really vivid dreams. Last night I had a dream about my first Ranger (my first vehicle, bought it when I was 15). The dream was I found it today and I was trying desperately to buy it back. It was so accurate; down to I was haggling with the guy who ran the dealer I found it at. The dealer was a real dealer in the town I went to high school in (the one dealer everyone knows to avoid). I was with my current girlfriend who has never seen the truck before. So, I walked around it and pointed out every scratch and dent to her, including the dent I put in the fender when I was upset and punched my truck when I was 16. Even down to the two tone topper that matched the two tone truck with a ford pin striping separating it. The blue gel coat on the topper was even faded the same way. It had the 91 explorer wheels that it had on it with the Spartan USA 1 tires that I put on there when it was a few months in my hands. I drove it in my dream and I could feel the clunkiness in the gear shifter and the weird clutch that most people had trouble driving. The rust over the wheel wells was spot on. It was just so accurate and vivid that when I woke up I was actually bummed that it wasn’t there. I know that it went to the scrap yard 10 years ago, but it was so true that I am really bummed today. Thought maybe some of you would appreciate this.
