matt's2.9STX from Southeast MI, with his 1993 Ranger...

.Modifications
Cheap Profile head unit, Lightning Audio 5x7 door speakers (I like the mids & highs better than Pioneer, Infinity, etc for a lot less cash), has true dual exhaust & Uniroyal Laredo P265's on chrome rims. Rear speakers next. Might mod the dash with blue LED's. I have plenty of those.

matt's2.9STX is starting off with a positive reputation.
Thanks.:)

I'd do more with it to improve it & such & add pics as soon as I can get more money. Still love to drive it. I get withdrawal if I have to drive the other family autos too much. This 1 is stiff, cozy & has really firm, supportive seats. Very warm on coldest days too. Mostly though, it's a better driver than the other Fords here, including a 95 Crown Vic & another '94 Ranger. I was hoping those bold graphics might help to keep other drivers more aware of my presence in relation to them on the road, but I still have rely on that clutch to avoid collisions too often. The loud duals help more than the paint.

That reminds me. I need to find another pair of seats like this for my dad's Ranger. These older sport style seats seem to be great seats even among new Fords. Even he likes them for long drives on his bad arthritic back & slipped disc. Enough to be worth it climbing up into it.
