Project Green Machine

I picked up an 98 ranger the other day. Green inside, green outsode so I call it the Green Machine. Its a 2wd 2.5L Auto Reg cab. I picked it up thinking it had a bad fuel pump and needing a new leaf hanger. But it ended up being the timing belt. Havn't got the new one on yet. Its a weekend project because its a Johns house an hour and 20 mins away.

Anyway on with the pics. It has the different wheels on there cuz I was going to bring wheels home to change the tires but desided not to so all the rims match the passenger side.

Well I'm going to fix it. Then get it inspected then drive it for like 2 weeks. If I like it I will keep it for better gas milage. If not I will end up selling it.

If I do keep It it will only get maybe tinted windows and an aftermarkrt cd player.

Im not sure if anyone smoked in it. I think the guy who owned it before just never ever cleaned it. I kinda like the green interior.

Well we got her running yesterday. And got the leaf hanger fixed so I'll get some pics today. It don't run too bad for being a little 4 banger and 11 years old. But we also found out it has a hole in the exhaust so we will fix that today.
