    Hi, although I have posted a little here, I havn't really introduced myself. I am the only one in my family who can even operate a wrench. A real tomboy in a family of pencil pushers.
    I grew up Ford (grandfather, father). My first car was a 1955 Ford 2door, great learning experiance including Campbells soup cans and wire to make an exhaust pipe and old license plates to make a floor. Other cars and trucks I have owned range from my 1936 Chevrolet Standard (first gm model to have hydralic brakes) to F100, F150, F250. Crown Vic, Comet and a varied assortment that I would buy cheap, get running, detail and sell to have spending $. Right now I have an 89 Bronco and my 66 Ranchero (both red). I build my own engines too. Actually, I will do anything to my vehicles except auto transmissions.
    I hope I can eventually add some of my experiances to the great knowledge already here.

    Well then let me introduce myself, I am fairly new. My name is Neal and am 54, I live in North Powder, Or. It is a small community in North Eastern Oregon on I-84. I have been a car and motorcycle nut since I can remember. I have only had 3 cars I would call "hot rods" in my past, a 1955 orange merc 2 door montery, a "66" Baracuda and a "77" cheve short wheelbase rootbeer brown van with a nicly built 350. I raced bikes for many years until I wrecked a 400 husky and broke my neck in "74". I have designed and help build a wheelchair accessable 650 Yamaha which I played with for a couple years. Also owned and car chiefed a mustang mini stock my son drove on the local dirt track. I have always been intrigued by the Ranchero and using the money from selling my dirt car earlier this summer I bought a 1970 ranchero (standard model with a gt hood and flames). From a scale of 1-10 (1 being a total rust bucket and 10 being primo) it is about a 5. I have lots of work to do to make it my last hot rod ( plans on www.notn.org ). This will be my first attempt at body work. I am a c 6/7 quad spinal cord injury and I plan on doing as much of the work as I can my self but do have a lot of helping hands when time allow them to so will be a long project.

    Hi I'm Brian and I just got a 66 Ranchero to restore. I also have a 2003 F150 Supercrew I am constantly doing stuff to and I show it from time to time. I hope to get the Ranchero to that kind of shape in about 3 years. [​IMG]

    Hi, Dan here. My Ranchero is a 74 that I'm hoping to bracket race at Woodburn, Oregon next spring. Rebuilt 429 includes: 11:1 Speed Pro forged pistons, Lunati bracket master cam, rotating assembly balanced, Edelbrock gear drive (I like the whining sound!), Stealth intake, C8V-EE heads, Hooker Super Competition headers, TCI 3000 stall converter, C-6 and 9" posi. The desktop dyno estimates about 450 hp @5500. I bought the car from the original owner in California, drove it 500 miles home and took the motor out. The car is perfectly straight but the clear is faded away and the vinyl roof has surface rust under it, which is my next project.

    Hi, great site! I just bought a 67 XL 390/4-speed, A/C, PS, PB calif Ranchero (pics in the pics thread) This one brings me 1 step closer towards my goal of owning all of the 66-67 Fairlane body styles, as it joins my 66 500 hard top and 66 squire wagon - all I need now is a GT or GTA ragtop and a formal roof (I'm not counting a 4-door) to complete the collection [​IMG]

    HAY BRAD: DID YOU CALL/LOOK AT THE RANCHERO IN THE SACRAMENTO BEE NOW (THURS). It is in the "parting out section" of the "auto care & repair. It is a '62--- $500 takes it. I know nothing about this auto and will not persue it, as I already have two of these "PROJECT" cars.

    Hi, my name is Jason. I'm 25 years old and I have a '68 500. I've owned it for about 4 months, and originally bought it to haul my dirt bikes around. It was that or a beat up Ranger!
    We all know how projects take on a life of their own, so now I'm restoring it. It's currently red on red, but will soon be white on blue.
    I also own a '67 Shelby mustang replica. It has 17" Cobra R rims, 351W (360-370hp), Tremec 5-speed with 3.5 rear gears. I bought the mustang when I was 14. Everybody on this site seems to be as helpful as possible, which is great. I plan on making some posts in the future. Take care.

    Hi everybody,
    My name is Eric and I have a 1969 Ranchero that I have been working on for on and off for the last 5 years. I've had the suspension and drive train completly rebuilt with a 1980 Lincoln Versailles 9" disc brake rearend swap and 1978 Ford Granada from disc swap. She's not painted yet but I am hoping to get that done within the next couple of months.

    I am glad to find this site I had been looking for a Ranchero site for quite a while.

    Mustang/Ranchero hum Would that be a Mustang Ranch? It would have to have Nevada plates on it!

    Dave,

    I agree, a Shelby 'chero would look killer. Who knows, I just may be the idiot it takes to see it through!
    The '67 has WA plates, because that's where I'm from. The '68 Ranchero has CA plates, only because it's smog exempt. That's a can of worms I didn't want to deal with.
    I've "heard" of the Mustang Ranch, but have never been. HONEST!!

    Jason
