    About $5000

    I took home test drove a 1998 Ford Ranger Ext cab, with a 2.5l 4 cylinder and a 5 speed transmission. I like it, it's slow but will get good mpg and has room for systemage Plus I need a truck pretty bad. What do you all think? $5200

    Re: RIP- LCV's Porsche

    I have to say I agree with alpine3612's suggestion as I am a big Toyota fan myself.

    Or...

    You could spend the $6-700 on the Porsche and keep it.
    I just saved you over $4K.
    That'll be a 5% Finder's Fee, please.

    Re: RIP- LCV's Porsche

    Really? They are kind of expensive IMO, great trucks yes but expensive.

    The porsche is pretty much junk, I hafta spend at LEAST a realistic $2000 before it is going to be safe or bearable for me to drive for much longer, in PARTS ALONE. Brake pads, struts, tires, a battery, a few senors, door gaskets, window gaskets, suneroof gaskets... I'm selling it and a 944 pars car, with a spare head and a feew other parts for 1300 dollars.

    I have 3 jobs but don't make much money, only about 2000 saved up. Doing a 1000 down payment on the truck, my payments should be like 90 a month for 48 months.

    Re: RIP- LCV's Porsche

    I need a truck preety bad though, I alwyas have to borrow my paren'ts truck to do stuff at one of my jobs within th family business and it *****, I'll enjoy driving my own vehicle much better. It's ext cab so i have room to drop my 3 12" JL Audio W6's in it. Putting a comp set is gonna be a ***** though, I've got manual windows and there is just NOWHERE i can see that I can make a spaeakerpod sit to get good imaging.

    Sports cars are fun but nothing but trouble. I'll fix up a 944S2 or a 968 later on when I have a garage and money to buy a GOOD one to start with.

    All the reasons I bought my tacoma....also 4 banger 5 spd with no balls. But its a truck, unless you're pulling a boat or something...no real need for it . Mine works just fine with anything I've thrown in the bed .

    Really?? I should have got a six banger OH well, hard enough to find a nice tacoma for sale, let alone only a 6cyl

    Re: RIP- LCV's Porsche

    So far the only qualm I have about this truck is I'm 6'9" tall and while using the clutch my knee hits the turn signal. If I could modify that, It would be great...

    The only hauling I will be doing is occasional and light, most of the time I will be daily driving it just like I did my Porsche. Errands for the business, normal travel to destinations. I think I'm gonna buy it or a similar truck with a v6 automatic to solve the turn signal issue..., I like toyota but frankly I don't feel like paying for one especially if its an extra cab.

    That's what I had. I want to get a VW Golf Turbo Deisel.

    ******* it this truck ****ing ***** ***. I',m driving it as a loaner until I pay for it, and it's slow as hell and is getting pretty lackluster gas mileage. It even leaks after rain in the cabin through the back window, and I think the 3rd gear synchro is blown. WOrse off, when you rev it up, the voltage drops and the battery light comes on.



    I have some ****** luck.
