NOT a Ranger, but it is mine :D

So I don't have any pictures of my dad's truck, it's not really anything special right now. We will be repainting the bumpers and some other things over the summer, so I'll provide pics of the truck then. In the mean time, here are some pictures of my car. Enjoy!

***EDIT***
Guess I should fill you in on it, in case you don't know what it is.

Make: Chevrolet
Model: Malibu Maxx SS
Color: Black
Engine: LZ9 3900 SFI 60 degree V6 w VCT/VVT
Power: 240hp/240lb-ft torque
Transmission: 4T65-E (4spd manumatic)
The "SS" cars are distinguished by dual exhaust, 18" rims, standard fog lights, more aggressive skirting, a "mesh" style upper/lower/fog grills w satin silver trim, body colored strip on the trunk/hatch (replacing the chrome on regular models). The Maxx SS is further upgraded from the sedan by offering a standard second row moonroof (non-operational), optional rear-seat DVD, and standard flex-seating in the rear (7" of travel fore and aft, and reclining).

@nate... with TC on is not that bad, and it has only ever engaged once on me on a dry road. however as soon as TC is taken off, it becomes a completely different beast (and not really in the good sense). although the nice thing about taking TC off, is that the car has enough power to lay at least 16-20 feet of rubber :P

@taylor & hurley... since it's my daily driver, the only thing i'm looking to do right now is intake and exhaust, car is way too quiet. however once i have my policing career going, and i have another vehicle as my daily driver, i will be doing an extensive re-build of the car. it will include a lot more power, a manual transmission, and the *** end will be driving the car. why would i waste the time and the money, and not just buy say, a Camaro or Mustang? i've never been one to want to do the norm (obvious by the car i own). i could have bought a used Civic for $6,000 and spent $9,500 modifying it, but there are sooo many Civics out there, that i thought the $15,500 would be better used on this... besides, someone's gotta show Chevy what they SHOULD have done with the car :P
