CC Capsule: 1990 Ford Ranger XLT – Direct from Pizza Planet

I’m a fan of the first-generation Ford Ranger, especially post-facelift when they got the composite headlamps. This is just a good-looking little truck. And this one is in surprisingly good condition for being 30 years old.

Remember when two out of three trucks had these bed toppers? You don’t see them on new trucks. The beds are either open or have a flat cover on them. I wonder why these fell out of favor. Not that I’m a fan.

But wait, what’s that little sticker in the corner of the (broken) liftgate? A nod to the Pixar universe? It would be more perfect if this truck were an ‘80s Toyota but I still like the reference.
