    But my BMW X-5 is the ultimate. My second BMW I ever owned and nothing handles and performs like a BMW. Some times when out on the highway it feels like I'm flying a jet fighter. All right, I never flew a jet fighter but at night it almost feels like I'm flying a Cenna.

    But in my lifetime my favorites was my first car, a 56 Chevy (paid $300) , my 64 VW bus and my 66 Pontiac GTO. Feel sorry for young people who will never know what a muscle car was all about.

    Always wanted a Studebaker Avanti. It never happened.
    There is still time.

    Because they are boring and nothing special.

    they have one in Australia and people (car mags) seem to love it but for now its not planned to come here.

    A ranger with the some type of new ecoboost though would be awesome

    right now they have the 1.6, 2.0 and 3.5 out supposedly they are supposed to have 3 more out?????
    and the 1.6 is getting revamped to a 1.5 and it had some issues.

    so maybe a 3.0(Ranger) and a 4.0(type of mustang) ?????? that would crazy.

    Heres the ford ranger in aussyland

    I have not read anything about the Aussie Ranger (at least that I can remember). I expect Ford will wait and see if the GM midsize trucks sell well enough to justify bringing it over
    Wasn't sure as I am not in the market for a mid size truck. Just wondered since I seem to see them around. Your likely right on Ford waiting to see if someone else is successful with one first.

    About 20 years ago you couldn't give away one of those lincolns, now there are all over the 5 digit mark. Crazy numbers.

    That '66 Lincoln is better to want than to have. The electrical system is horrible and the parts are very expensive.

Certain year/models came with German made German motors good to at least 200,000 miles.
    I only ever owned 1 ranger back in 1994. It was a stick shift 4 banger. I got rid of it at 175,000 miles. That truck took a beating. It was involved in 7 wrecks non of which I was in the truck at the time. Seemed like a magnet for other cars. Not sure if the motor was German made but I never had an issue with it.

    I have heard that. I think I would do a Painless kit in it if I ever got one. If I was going to restore a car though it would be a 71 Torino GT. Second choice would be the Lincoln.
