i'm at that time now where i will be needing a car soon and unlike all my friends i have to buy it myself. now i would just buy some crap car to get me around but i'm going to need a truck because i need it to pull an open wheel trailer for my race car. originally i was looking at a Ford Bronco XLT at around 4 grand but then again the thing is 8 miles to the gallon leaving my pockets empty haha.
so just yesterday my i was talking to my friend and i was asking him about what car he has. oddly enough he has a 94' or 96' Ford Ranger. now this would be ideal for me because its a small truck, can dish out some torque needed for a trailer (that i mind you will be small and light), and its pretty good on gas.
now before i have my mind set on this i want to get your guys opinion. do you know of any other brands that i should look into that are good on gas?
i was sticking with Ford originally because from my own experience, mileage and age doesn't matter. i'm looking for a truck thats under or is 6 grand and is used and year wise i would say after 88' and before 2000 unless there is a great deal on it
any help would be great thanks
