1979 Ford F150 Ranger Lariat 429ci from North America
The single greatest truck I've ever seen
I had to replace the bed because it rusted out.
This is by far the greatest truck ever made, and anyone who has ever owned one will back me up. My truck was a heavily modified truck, but it was still a truck. We took the 429 out of a mustang, and overhauled it until it was pushing somewhere in the area of 575hp. This truck was several colors as I couldn't afford to paint it. Gas prices weren't too high, but when you get 4 1/2 miles per gallon, you don't end up with a lot of money to spare.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Well considering the guy has enough money to throw in a 429 engine and not paint it, well that's the mpg you would expect. Plus I'm guessing it's a 4x4 with a 3 speed auto (ouchie on highway mpg) and lets see, no money for paint = no money for tuneup or any wearable parts that affect mpg. Then we got a clogged exhaust or air intake probably. And the wonderful aerodynamics... yeah 4 mpg aint bad for those conditions.
