the list goes on and on
You don't know the right people.

'91 Town Car - 135K and still rollin'
'94 Ranger XLT - 127K and still rollin'
Numerous Rangers on sites listed above with well over 200K

Don't get me wrong. I am not particulary a Ford fan. I much prefer Pontiac.

Just couldn't resist...

Yea wrong ford crowd My boss and I still use our 1984 Ford F150 for the tough work up near brainerd, and it'* got over 300k miles on it. Of course it'* got the bulletproof 4.9L Inline 6, 1bbl carb, you know the one that revs like a diesel. Couple that to the back-in-the-day ford CAST IRON 4-speed manual tranny with granny gear and a super low transfer case with manual hubs and you've got yourself one helluva good truck.

Fords are not bad cars or trucks... I'd have a Ford over a dodge anyday...

My dad at one point had a Ford Bronco II, 4x4 when we lived in colorado... Had a 2.9 V6... It was a gutless wonder, But it always did the job, never had any issues, and always pulled through the snow... Did I forget to mention that it had the winterized package, with HD starter and Battery? It never failed us in the dead of winter... Neighbors always hated us because it always started... Could be a blizzard and we'd jump in the 4x4 ford and head to the store...LMAO

Have you ever seen the set up on the 4.6 SOHC V8... There is a coolant hose under the intake behind the front accessory bracket that you can't see or get to unless you remove the intake... We pulled a burned up engine out of a Crown Vic, and found out why it was burned up... as we were swapping intakes and the like... There was even a Pool of coolant
between the cylinder banks...
