Love how you're calling it "this little Ram". Here by us that would be to big to fit in a standard parking bay!

Here's a photo the little Ford truck that I owned some 20 years ago.


The F150, or the Ranchero?


Oh, and those must be mail delivery vehicles. Otherwise the steering wheels are on the wrong side.

So when those Moms are out marching against Velveeta shortages, we can count on Racer to be counter marching with his Tillamook sign? If so...so long Racer, what they will do to you will be oh so ugly!

Oh, I dunno. Once they taste the cheddar gooey goodness they will be hugging me.

Can you imagine a Mom giving their children a grilled Tillamook?


Why yes.


Yes I can.


My mom gave me grilled sharp Tillamook cheddar cheese sammiches.


I have made many for myself.


And Mrs. Racer makes them for me all the time.


Oh.


And she also makes them for the grandkids too.


Yes sir, the grandkids love them.

The '75 F100. Those days it was F100 for the half-ton pickup, F150 for the one-ton pickup and F250 for the heavier duty one. The car was my '57 Custom 300. Looks a bit like a Ranchero but not quite! That F100 was pretty quick as it had a 351cu engine mated to that standard gearbox. It was good to drive on dry roads, but wet roads was another story altogether!

These are not mail delivery vehicles, LOL. As you know we drive on the wrong side of the road in South Africa and here in New Zealand!

And not to forget India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and a host of other Asian countries. As well as about a dozen African countries. And some others scattered throughout.

My Mom would wash your mouth out with soap for such language. Nothing against your Mom, but it is obvious she cared nothing about your well being or nutrition. My Mom wanted me to get exposure to all those artificial and chemical ingredients in Velveeta to build a lifetime immunity.......at least that's what she said....?

Last night...begging for a big chunk of Velveeta...he got it!

I have always been a Ford truck guy, but this little Ram has changed that. It has been a wonderful and trouble free truck. Just plain and simple, but it gets the job done for my needs, which are mostly just hauling animal feed nowadays.
A good radio, icy cold air, heat to cook a pizza on the dash and good gas mileage. Plus.....since it hauls all that squirrel feed, squirrels never even consider chewing up the wiring.

I have a Ram.


But it isn't little.




Out on the lawn at home.










Off road driving in Utah.







At Harts Pass, on the way back from Slate Peak, the highest place one can drive to in Washington state at 8,000 feet.





Cummins 5.9 diesel, NVG 6 speed manual transmission, 6 wheel drive. Premium trim with heated leather seats that are 6 way adjustable (electric), power windows and door locks, air conditioning, tilt wheel, AM/FM/cassette/CD player with equalizer and Infinity 6 speaker sound.


Like a Power Wagon on steroids.


It is like riding around in a Cadillac.

Nice Ram! Love those bolt-on rear fenders! Parking one of those here would be.... interesting!

Not when you're trying to find a replacement RHD '57 Ford steering box. Then it's most definitively the wrong side. Easy to find LHD steering boxes or parts for same - not so much for RHD.

Mine is good sized. The entire property is 6.17 acres. About 4 acres is lawn.


The old Ford handles it well.
