Well it might be a fleet if any of them ran! The old trucks are all in various states of disrepair. I have the 360 out of the 70 right now trying to get it rebuilt and I just got a 75 F350 chassis with a 460 and C6, extended cab, three fenders, and a disk brake front end. I need a distributor for the 460 to see if it will run. I may drop it into the 70 or I may build my 360 up with 390 crank, rods, and pistons. Not sure yet and it all depends on time and money!

Welcome to the chapter. I guess I'm a wimp...I drive post '70 rides that have a/c....well I was when the Ranchero was running. Poor thing hasn't been out of the yard in 7-8 years.

Thanks for the warm welcome. It is nice to have a place away from all the Chevy drivers.

I wouldn't say that too loud, one of our fellow chapter members drives a Chebby. I won't name names...he knows who he is. Course I can't say allot, I do have a Pontiac on my property taxes/auto insurance...but it was a freebie for a family member to drive; the details are a long story best left untold.

Almost forgot, I used to drive a '90 Ranger XLT...that is until someone stole it while I was at a high school football game 15 years ago. It was my first auto (bought it when I was 17) and drove it I don't know how many thousand miles. I still remember filling it's tank for less than $20 and seemed like that thing would go forever on a tank. I don't think you can beat that 2.3L bolted to the 5-speed.

Years ago (I'm talking 12-13) someone sent me an email that re-defind what all the car names meant. The Chevy was something like:
Cheap Heap Every Valve leaking Oil on Engine and Transmission; GMC was Garage Man's Companion, or Got a Mechanic Coming. I wish I could remember the Dodge & Toyota phrases.

Old_Crow is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I guess I won't mention I spent 19 years working on GM products. Funny, 4 years after leaving the dealership I've got a Jeep and 2 Fords.

I had an 88 Ranger once and it would go forever on a tank of gas. I let it go to get my 72 F-100, not a bad trade, but the F-100 sure used a lot more gas. My 01 Ranger doesn't do too bad. I get bout 25mpg out of the 2.3 with an auto.
