    OK, I'll be the first. This is my Ranchero at a car show. It's got 3 or 4 different shades of green paint and a few dings, but I still think it's a beauty!;)

    That's the best shot of your chero I've ever seen. Doesn't make the paint any more palatable, or the front clip, but I'll give you props for it. Farm truck, yeah right.

    Whether you like the green or not, it's unique (around here at least). It was a farm truck for the first 30+ years of it's life. You have to remember that in the 70's, pickups were not luxo-limo's like they are these days.

    I like the wheels, and it looks pretty good. My car started its life that color. I believe that rattle-cans were probably used to apply the crappy white that it is now.

    They have them, just a bit reduced in size.;)
    Denny's rig looks good, and has the full front kit to boot!

    Yeah, it sure is. I bought my Ranchero near Winnsboro, TX in 2006. It was still titled in the name of the original owner and has no rust, other than a few very small surface rust spots. Tennessee only uses rear plates so I decided to leave the Texas Farm Truck plate on the front.

    Yeah, sure he does :eek: He just says 'Hi' to the lovely ladies, tips his hat, and leaves. And he doesn't inhale either.

    If this is for me, no the strips are not. As for the location it is in the parking lot of one of the high schools here. That tower used to be used to watch people on the driver's education course. Not there anymore.
