im from ohio, i was directed here from another site, my fords are older ones, both '93's, and both have about 130K on them. the ranger i'd like to keep for as long as it can be kept on the road, but the taurus id trade in a instant if i could afford a car payment. right now it has wipers that are uncoperative and a hole in the bottom of the catalytic converter. i work at a honda supplier parts factory and live in a 1980 trailer. someday i hope to do better, at least the junk i do have is paid off and i have no outstanding debt.
