LIMA —The Ford Ranger is one of the top-selling American pickup trucks. It has come a long way since its introduction in 1983 as a mid-sized truck, bridging the gap between the full-sized F-Series and the compact Courier. Ford executives were hoping to compete against the Japanese pickup lines. The Ranger replaced the Courier, which was basically a Mazda pickup with some Ford styling changes. Ford boasted that the Ranger had more interior room than the best-selling imports and that 4x8-foot construction material could be carried in the bed (with the tailgate down).



Bruce A. Baker, of Lima, brought his 1990 Ford Ranger to The Lima News’ Real Wheels Cruise-In. He has owned it for five to six years. His brother-in-law owned it before Baker bought it. Baker said his favorite memory is the first time driving the truck as his own.
