HELLO

Ok my ranger story,
It was given to me by some regulars that visit the restaurant I work at, yes given it was an extra car for them and in conversation one day i mentioned that I needed o go vacume my car (2007 VW GTI) after work do to the fact it was full of mulch from doing yard work. It dose have some miles but the motor was rebuilt about 15k before i got it. The list of the bad needs tires, odometer dose not work, gas reads E all the time, cheak engine light is on, small dents and dings here and there, no A/C, and just needs some all around TLC it did sit for some time. Well now for the good it was free, I already bought rims and tires for it $150.00, my father-in-law is a retired tech (high end imports) so the ranger should be cake, it runs fine I drove it home 25 miles no issues, and did I mention it was free.
1995 Ranger XLT
5 speed
2wd
195K
Ok here is a couple of pics all i have done is change the wheels and tires have not even washed it so better pics to come after i get her all cleaned up and fixed up, she will be on hell of a home-depot truck..................

Yea they went to a tsi from an fsi no big change just the intake system much simpler design same out put and mpg but if you look at it the 2007 was the one that got motor of the year. I love my GTI they finally came out with a 4 door with a 6 speed manual like they do over seas
