Going through a bunch of old pics and found this, 12/30/87. The day my dad picked up his brand new '88 XLT Supercab 2wd Ranger. It's the truck I learned how to drive, drive a stick shift in, took my drivers test in, and went on a few dates in high school in (when dad would let me borrow it that is). Lots of fond memories with this truck. Came fully equipped for the time, cruise/tilt, A/C, tach, am/fm/cassette, power windows & door locks, 2.9L V6/5-speed manual, and the useless jump seats in the rear that me & my sister were stuck riding in whenever we all went somewhere. Had sweet inclement weather options like the 14" deluxe steel wheels with Firestone P215 all seasons and an open rear axle...lol. AKA, pretty much of a handful in the snow.
Sure was a sharp looking truck when it was new though. The two-tone (known by Ford as Lower Accent) was nice, especially in the silver over black.
