Hello from Paradise CA !!!

Hi Guys and Gals,

I recently bought a 1989 Ford ranger and looking to do some major work to it ... it has:
149,000 miles (or so i was told)
Manual Tans.
NO powersteering
NO A/C unit
its like a purplish blue color
very crappy interior

but the best thing is i bought it for ..... $ 400 !!!

i call it a steal .. it runs, and is reg. until january of 2011 !! So, what should I do first? (that will improve looks and gas milage ) it currently gets an average of 25.77 MPG (thats an average of 3 tank fill ups)

I bought it as a commuter and hope to make it look great .. thanks guys i hope to learn much on this forum as it is my first actual truck (i have owned 5 cars and currently own a 2005 dodge caravan)

here are some pictures
Tail


Passanger Side Ext.



Front



Dirty Engine Bay



Drivers Side Ext.



Rusty Bed



Damaged Driver Side Of Bed




Driver Side Front End Damage



Nasty Interior (Much Work Needed)




well that it for now ... i think ill be placing it on the project section once i start improving it so give me some feed back please tips and tricks on how to get the most MPG out of it and thanks in advance for the welcomes !!

-Andy

Welcome! I don't think it was a bad buy. Looks like a good project. I had a 1990 with about 15K in it. Loved it and now am sorry I sold it.
