Ford Offers Three New, Limited Edition Color Choices For Ranger Line
Have you ever looked over at a pickup or SUV and thought that the paint color was exactly right for your pickup or SUV? It happens all the time. Here's a case in point: a few years ago, we were looking at new vehicles as our daily driver was on its last wheels. Yes, the old faithful vehicle was used as a trade on a new one.
Color Choice Was Just Right
As we looked around at the color choices, we decided a silver blue was the best for our new ride, and that was it. We did the usual at the dealership – test drive, bargaining, the handshake, and the forms. Then, it was into the business office, where we finalized the deal. We switched the plates to the new vehicle from our former ride, and we were on our way. A quick call to our insurance agent while things were percolating and everything was all set.
It was a very straightforward deal, one that we were happy to make. It also happened about six years ago.
One of the keys for us was the color. The silver-blue paint and trim were just what we wanted, and we were pretty pleased.

Marc Stern has been an automotive writer since 1971 when an otherwise normal news editor said, "You're our new car editor," and dumped about 27 pounds of auto stuff on my desk. I was in heaven as I have been a gearhead from my early days. As a teen, I spent the usual number of misspent hours hanging out at gas stations Shell and Texaco (a big thing in my youth) and working on cars. From there on, it was a straight line to my first column for the paper, "You Auto Know," an enterprise that I handled faithfully for 32 years. Not many people know that I also handled computer documentation for a good part of my living while writing YAN. My best writing, though, was always in cars. My work has appeared in Popular Mechanics, Mechanix Illustrated, AutoWeek, SuperStock, Trailer Life, Old Cars Weekly, Special Interest Autos, etc. You can follow me on: Twitter or Facebook.
