Newbie from the VA

Hi my name is Bobby I am from a small town in Southwest Virginia called Rose Hill with about 250 people. I own a 1992 Ford Ranger STX. I bought the truck back in 2003 with hopes of making it a one of a kind show truck. Well over the year's I have added some new parts. The wheel's that are currently on are the brand new Pacer Warrior wheels. That I got from 4 wheel's unlimited out of Kingsport TN. Underneath I have a set of Streetglow underglow kit (Green) of course to match the paint. The paint color is Calipso Green. Also added on was the Tonneau cover with the Wings West Spoiler with custom tips made. I get so much beef because of that spoiler because I am the only one in the tri-state area with a spoiler on my truck like mine. Next I have in the back is a set of subwoofer's 3 10in JL Audio's in a custom box also have carpet to match the color of the truck. Inside I have interior that was taken out of a 32 Ford that just slipped right in the original position of the old seats. Dash Carpet is also inside and a Sony Xpold headunit. Just trytin to keep the interior clean as possible. The suspension I have a small lift to the front to make the truck sit level. For the motor department I have a 4.0L V6 pushing custom headers intake and a Flowmaster 40 series exhaust that is dumped out before the rear wheels. I get alot of praise from people thinking my truck sounds like a 302. Well it might because of the cam I also added in. There is hardly any room in there to do any work on the motor. The tranny is also not stock. I had the tranny come beefed up from Jasper Engines and Transmissions. The rear end has a low gear in it also to tow heavy loads. I am able to tow my gf's 84 mustang with ease. For car show's I have gone to so many I have lost count for over the years. I have only entered in a few car show's within the past 2 years. But everytime I enter in a show I seem to get a trophie to my collection. I have around 30 trophies. A couple best of show truck, best 4X4, best import (don't ask) and best 2wd ( don't ask). I like to show off my truck alot. It is my daily driver. I also own a 89 Mazda B2200 with a 3inch drop in the back and it is flat black. Nothing special is done to it just another mini truck to me. Not as good as my old 87 with hydro's. Also I own a 85 ford ranger that is more or less to play with. the body of the truck has 495,000 miles with the original motor still in it. Plans are to drop a 351 supercharged motor in it. Then finish restoring it. if you want to know more just add me on myspace at www.myspace.com/themanthatwonitall
