    Welcome everyone!
    I am writing to you from Poland from Zielona near Lublin in south-eastern Poland. I am 44 years old and I have been interested in cars from America since childhood. I love American cars, I ride them on a daily basis, I buy, I repair and the sound of the V8 engine wakes me up to life ....
    I have a Chevy Van G20 5.7 1991, Chevrolet Caprice 5.0 1987, Buick Lesabre 5.7 1974 and my last purchase, bought in Canada Ford Ranchero 6.6 1977 !!! At Ranchero I have been hunting for five years, there are few in Poland and I was able to buy in Canada. The car is in the process of handling exports to Poland and I can not wait for it !!!
    I salute all !!!

    Hello.
    My Ranchero arrived in Poland, a very good car, well maintained, with a powerful 6.6 L engine with a manifold and collector Edelbrock, a dual exhaust system with cut out. It's great and amazing !!!
    With him arrived Chevy El Camino 1959, for a decent repair, bought it by my friend who rebuilds American cars.
    Greetings to all clubbers!

    Welcome to the Ranchero owner's club, looks like you have found/purchased one in very good condition(equals more $$ left over for mods). Can't imagine how difficult and/or expensive it would be to find or ship any needed parts for a Ranchero while living in Poland. Commending you for representing American made vehicles where you live(even though the Ranchero was a Canadian purchase ;)).

    Welcome.

    I have a couple of cars from America, as you can see in the pictures, I love driving them and I always try to have spare parts, I buy for Rockauto, I always collect some parts needed or not for the package. Very good prices, shipping about 10-12 days and package at home. I love these cars and I can not imagine that it would be different !!!

    Welcome to the site, Marcin!

    Rock Auto is a good source for common mechanical parts. For other items, such as original trim, emblems, badges, etc. try Ebay.

    You can post here in the section "Ranchero Parts Wanted" for anything you might need.

    There are also aftermarket suppliers: Macs (Dearborn Classics), Auto Krafters, Dennis Carpenter, and some others.

    I envy your friend. The '59 El Camino is my most favorite Chevrolet, but, my heart (read: wallet) belongs to my '79, Babe the Blue Ox.

    Welcome.
    My Ranchero is quite complete and it's fun but if I need something, I will definitely ask you for help !!! I got to know the site and review it from time to time and there is a lot of knowledge and photos needed here. There are not many Ranchero Fords in Poland, I know two or three cars of such a model as my ....
    I can not help it, I can not live without American cars ...

    Fuel costs in Poland at the current rate of 1.35 $ per liter of fuel, or 5.1 $ for a gallon of unleaded petrol.
