i'm probably not going to do much else to it until i get it paid off....

i might sneak my glasspacks on it and install a cluster with a tach.

but i really want a Hurst shifter

thats what i'll be saving for the most

its a Jenson....something

its not very powerful but the sound quality is pretty good with Alpine speakers all around.

i'm not a stereo person so i don't care about how loud it is.....

i had a $200 head unit in my 87 and i hardly used it...i'd rather listen to my straight pipes

How did I bash you? I bashed the 2.3 lima and its performance in n/a form not you.

lol....we bought it that way

its our car show cruiser......its been converted to 12 volt, the brakes are from a 50's era pickup and the dash lights are LED

we've done nothing to it except get everything in working order.....the brakes didn't work at all when we got it

now we have a 29 chevy that we are restoring to original condition....its been 3 years in the making and probably will be a few more....but we are keeping it %100 original

man, that new Ranger is the perfect replacement for the old one.

I'm glad you got it, that's going to be a nice little project. Such a nice looking truck, I'd love to cruise around in that thing.
