    Your trade was incredible, in your favor! What a wonderful looking ride! Despite the beastly remark! I had a '79 GT, It rode like a big boat, but did very well with a '91 Mustang 5.0L HO EFI and AOD, put 3.25 gears in it, cruising interstate it did 25 mpg! Trying to find a pic, but no luck so far. Congratulations! mo.

    Andy its a hard choice i loved the camaro but wanted something different and different is what i got .. im not used to a Ford i know chevy's in and out so its new . there's alot of things i want to do but cant due to lack of custom parts . it also seems the 351 was really not built for the BIG Boat the year is just to big for that motor they should have all come with a 460 i think .i do think i get more thumbs up in the ranchero vs the camaro. i also don't see many my year around they all seem older more in the early 70s.

    but all in all im ok and haven fun with it

    Some performance can be woke up in the 351/ although I believe the RANCHERO is just one hell of a cruiser, and if you look around the interweb you will find all kinds of custom parts,BUT AS I SAD ONE PRETTY RANCHERO ,WELCOME TO RANCHERO.US ANDY

    instead of 460 maybe just do 408 stroker kit to your 351W
