Strange Ways...

Hello all,

I've posted here a few times about my ups and downs to do with my Ford Ranger truck. Had some feedback from others concerning the old beast. Anyway, I said to someone once that the best way to get better mileage out of it would be not to drive it, or get something more economical. So I guess my wish came true in a strange way...

Came home from a vacation today to find it had been stolen out of my driveway. Guess I'll be driving something else soon. Figures, I just spent $500 getting it to pass inspection.

Oh well, I'm sure glad I didn't drop my full coverage insurance, so I'll probably get something for it. But despite how bad on gas it was, and how many problems it had, I miss it already...

Thanks everyone,
Rich

Sorry to hear about your ranger, hopefully karma catches up with the theives.

Good luck finding something new that you like just as much.

Theft sucks but karma's got long arms.

Any idea what you want to replace it with? You may actually be better off without it financially.

Good luck.
