A lot to learn ...

Hi, everyone. I just bought my first Ranger a couple of weeks ago and have a lot to learn about these little trucks. And don't get me wrong, I am not putting them down by referring to them as "little."
My '93 is actually a step up from my '86 Subaru Brat, which I recently sold to a friend. I have owned several trucks, including a '64 F-100, a '55 IHC and currently have a '63 Ranchero project.
I am currently the automotive editor for Kansas' largest daily newspaper, the Wichita Eagle. So I get to see and report on a lot of cool vehicles.
I own a 63-1/2 Falcon Futura fastback, recently completely rebuilt, and my wife has a 1960 Rambler American 4-door.
I look forward to tapping your knowledge and wisdom about Rangers; this little truck has already become my daily driver.

The color is very close to Grabber Blue, but is actually called Blockbuster Blue, as in the video store.

Well, I was much younger and a lot more impatient, so the 45 mph cruising speed left a lot to be desired!
