Down on the Farm -- Ranger out to pasture

Email News Alerts

After 10 years and 260,000 miles, the time came to put my loyal and trustworthy Ford Ranger out to pasture.

I saved the taxpayers some money by not taking advantage of the cash-for-clunkers program. My pickup is not a clunker. It never will be. I'll probably keep it forever.


The Ranger is now a field truck. The guys use it to go fix the deer fence or trim trees.
