      i cant believe it! I've owned that thing for 10 years, and i don't even have a really good pic.
      this is about the only one that i have (behind my never ending money pit for a capri) and that was taken about 7 years ago!

      [​IMG]

      jay, i have/had a 90 ranger that some punks chucked a 4x4 fence post at it one night while it was parked on the street in front of my house. it took out the back window, and dented the cab in pretty good. the insurance company totaled it (2500 in damages.....whatever). i was thinking of getting a newer truck but this pushed it up. pete wanted it for a new toy, so he is going to buy it for the buy back cost.

      want irony? a week to the day after that happened, my buddy (gord) that painted my explorer, his son would park gords MINT 85 pinto in the same spot when he was at school. i wake up to find a kid banging on my door. i look outside and see this

      i stand corrected! it was a 80. looking online that was the last year they were made. i just knew that he had the last production year that they made them. i thought it was 85, but that was when his uncle bought it. my bad!

      well crap

      that didn't work out so well,
      i just loaded up and hooked up the dolly wheels, and hit the road,,
      unfortunately i forgot a few things,.,
      i got yanked by the cops, for no license plate on the dolly wheels, which i completely forgot about,,
      and while he was at it, he also wrote me a ticket for not being able to show a valid insurance form , even though i have insurance,

      final total,
      $40 in gas, 4 hours of my time, and $180 in tickets,, ,

      try again next weekend

      well, i did a bunch of digging and i may beat the one ticket for $110 ,
      it seems a tow dolly doesn't require a license plate here, so, the policeman wrote a bad ticket, i am just waiting for written confirmation that is to be emailed to me, than i will go to town and show that to the Judge, and get that one dropped,,

      sweet,,

      If you can show that you are in fact insured, you might be able to get that one dropped or reduced as well.

      well winter that is not really how it happens in Ontario, he didn't charge me with not having insurance , he charged me with not having proof with me, which in Canada is required by law.
      if he had charged me with no insurance i could produce the card and get that one taken away,
      that way i have to pay the ticket ,

      Damn that sucks, I was in a similar situation and went to court and the DA dropped it without me even having to talk to the judge.

      to give everyone a update, pete made it here (without any tickets either). he picked up the bumper (that thing is enormous) as well as my (well, his now, i miss it already) ranger. he gave me a hand by towing a parts explorer to gords, and picked the ranger up from there. we sat and chatted for a bit, then he had to take off. he wanted to try and get home before dark (and i don't think that happened), but he did make it back safe and sound. hopefully he will have pics up tomorrow.

      yeah, i was all happy to be going home in light when it happened,,
      i came upon some people on the road fixing an Explorer, , how could i drive past ??

      i didn't,, so,,
      on the side of the Trans Canada highway i put a lower ball joint in a 2001 Sport Trac,, with hand tools, and a hydraulic jack, and got the lady and her kids back on the road again,, than went on my way , not accepting the money she offered,,
      the stunned other people that stopped to help were shocked and amazed..
