I've got you beat by two years.  My truck is an '81 Ranger Lariat with a 351W  engine with a Motorcraft 2100 carb and a C6 tranny.  All original.  I tuned her up a few weeks back, (rebuilt the carb, set the timing and replaced the plugs.) and she runs like a scared rabbit.  Starts right up and that old C6 shifts smooth as butter.  If you take care of a Ford product, they will last a lifetime.  My old '65 Mustang has never had the engine overhauled and it runs great.  Yes, the brakes and other things that tend to wear out need to be replaced, but the major things will last forever if you take care of them. 
Anyway, if I hit one of those "cheater" cars with my pickemup truck, they are history, and I will be attending their funeral.  I get about an average of 14 MPG, and I only use the truck for short trips to haul stuff.  My Mach gets about 30 MPG so that is the vehicle we take on trips,  I just value the life of my wife and myself to drive anything smaller.

My Ranger is a baby ranger, the first year offered in 4x4. V6. Has hauled many, many cords of wood and is a great truck to have at deer and elk camp.

So, '83 was the first year for downsizing the Ranger?  I bought an 86 Ranger and took it to Germany with me.  That little 4 banger had a hard time keeping up with the big boys on the Autobahn.   ;D

I know 1983 was the first year the baby Ranger was available in 4x4, 82' could have been the first year for downsizing.

How long have you owned Yeller? Maybe we should go to off topic?

Nah, we don't need to go to off topic.  I am the moderator here, and the owner of the site is in France.  Not a problem.  The big Mustang sites require the off topic and stuff, but not here.  I know, because I was a mod on the biggest of the Mustang sites.  This is a  a small friendly site devoted to talking about just about anything related to Mustangs.   I bought Yeller in 1992.

Great, just wanted to make sure. My wife just took the 67' for her first drive in it. I stood on the deck and watched her drive in front of our place. The Mustang is sounding great with the new exhaust system and looking better as time goes by. She came back with a smile and said how good it drives, I am liking the car more everyday, starting to become a love affair. This is a big statement from a Camaro guy....

The jury is still out on the tranny pan leak, so far so good !! Letting her set another day before crawling under to inspect.

You know damn well we  are going to require a picture of you and your wife with your 67.  Hell, if you have a video camera, take a video of your wife driving that 67 with that smile on her face. 
Have you voted in the Mustang of the Month contest?  If not, you need to do that.  Tomorrow is the last day.
