trust me bro when i say this, Clunk, clunk, clunk, hesitation to stop then died right in the parking space. Then it made popping sounds....

Not worth the head ache for me i love that truck but it will be better just for me to trade it for a bronco or a moped. Bronco i can haul stuff and have more options to do more stuff. Moped I can drive from here all the way to cali on 30 bucks max... maybe 100

I am am broke now, its either go completely broke and unable to job search or go trade it while it still moves a little bit get a good job then go buy another. I cannot run the risk of NO TRANSPORTATION

I don't take buses, They are a complete waste of space and i find paying 3.75 for a 2 hour ride is not worth it when i can take 3.75 and ride a motor bike twice as fast and get there twice as quick.

Hell I am thinking whats best for me i don't have money to swap

Aw man, i'm sorry to hear that. Ya mopeds are nice, i actually was looking into one for a while but that is on the back burner for now. They aren't cheap but they aren't expensive. I wish you good luck though.

Step back, and take a deep breath. You're not making any sense.

yeah i am going to find me a nice one... Dip on the ranchero area for 1500 there will always be someone who is restoring stuff. There is also less then 2,000 left so i here between the torino and ranchero.

I am going to make a pimped out moped and get everything i can get out of it to make it a year around experience. (EXCEPT FOR ICY DAYS) I will throw a stereo on it and everything put like 1 6x9 in the seat if i can and throw some smaller speakers on the inner fender. Throw a little mini glass pack on it and i will be ROLLIN! LOL AHHHAHAHAHA I make every ride i have fun and throw on little minimal modifications. I find this is the only acceptable time to make a vehicle sound like a honda with the little fart tin can.

Me and some class mates put a peashooter straight pipe on a Briggs & Straton single piston engine that we rebuilt for out class and it made it sounds super funny. Here is another idea for you that I was telling a friend of mine from the east coast for her moped.

You're not making sense because bad gas cannot suddenly kill an engine like that.

Come on man, you're making a much bigger deal out of this then it really is. One tank of gasoline cannot_physically_kill_an_engine that quickly. Trust me on this.

Drain all the gas out, clean/replace spark plugs, put fresh gas in.

Like I said, you're overreacting - the engine still runs. It's not running well because your carb is leaking. Drain all the bad fuel out, flush it out with fresh fuel. Fill the tank with fresh fuel. Start from there.

Not trying to offend you, but if you can't work out how to deal with just a tank of bad gas, then you probably shouldn't be driving a 1975 Ranchero, or any vehicle with an engine really. This is really not a big deal at all.
