4/25/10 Mounted and balanced my 4 free tires on my 96 polished Cobra wheels i picked up, all 4 for $100. Detailed the interior a little bit, it still has a long way to go, and finally washed it for the first time. It should be registered and on the road next week sometime. I also found the owners manual int he factory envelope, business card for the dealership (dorian ford) and the original owners information, The truck was purchased 8/10/88, 3 months and 6 days before i was born LOL

That truck looks great for its age, especially the interior. I've never been a fan of those wheels until now! They look 10x better on a Ranger than a Mustang!
