Ol' reliable
The 1996 Ford Ranger is one of the most basic vehicles on the road today. And in our modern world of constant connectivity, that's a welcome blessing. The truck boasts a 2.3 liter inline four producing maybe 100 horsepower mated to a Mazda-derived 5-speed manual. More precisely, rather, a four speed with overdrive. In essence, you won't be going anywhere fast, but that's OK, because why do you have to drive top speed everywhere? Take it easy. The truck also features an AM/FM radio with cassette player, which is more than adequate for 2018. In addition to playing all your awesome tapes from the '80s, you can still use an adapter and play a modern CD or Mp3 device. Maintenance is a breeze on this thing. The Ranger was the most popular compact pickup in the 90's and also shared most of its parts with the first-generation Explorer. That means aftermarket parts are cheap and plentiful. The Ranger is one of the last vehicles that a home mechanic can take care of completely on his own. In fact, since the truck was basically unchanged until it was discontinued in 2011, you can easily use parts meant for newer Rangers on the old ones.

Ford tough miniaturized.
It's an old, slow, somewhat rusty truck. And I love every bit of it. It's so easy to work on and parts are so cheap. It's also pretty handy, as well, especially in SuperCab form. The six-foot bed has just enough room to haul a decent load. The axle can handle a decent 1700 pound load (more if you upgrade the leaf springs, but don’t push it).There's just enough room in the cab for 2 people in the front and 2 more in the back (short trips, though). Everything about the truck is simple and no-nonsense, which is greatly appreciated in this tech-crazy world we live in. With the 5-speed, you can just focus on driving and that's such a refreshing thing in today's day and age. It’s basic transportation in a pure form; nothing unnecessary interferes with the driving experience. The truck gives you exactly what you need to get from point A to point B. Nothing more, nothing less. And that’s a good thing! It’ll be a sad day once the government makes old workhorses like this illegal. But until that day, I’m enjoying it every bit.
