i might use this as a scca car. ive been talking to a italian company in columbus that races x19s in national scca events and they are surprised to see these cars still around. even a local one so idk the ranger will just be a daily for mpg.

Trade me your 07 for my 01. Lol. I am almost tempted to get a 01+ 2.3L 5 spd regular cab as a daily in place of the 01, though I think I'm just going to sell it and stick with 2 vehicles. The 01 is ok, doesn't quite get the MPG I want, not to mention I love the regular cabs.

Don't get rid of your Ranger man,, keep it as is and THEN have a project car. Don't have a stock DD., who does that? Lol

Keep the Ranger as is and us it as a daily. Thats what I do.

And those Fiats will straight run if you set it up right. Not the best looking cars in the world, but the handle like a go kart!

i havent heard from him......kit is ready to go if theres another buyer.

and looks like im just gonna junk the 77 fiat. i tore off some stuff and the rust is too great to fix. so the money is going into getting the turbo ranger back onto its feet. so buy my rims and lowering kit. i also will be selling a 8.8, 6000k hids and some other randoms.

Little sad to hear the truck is going back to stock as mine is slightly inspired by yours. But the Turbo project should be cool.

I'd be interested in the kit if I didn't have 4wd. Doesn't do me much good! Good luck with the sale.
