Oliver Younger: Starsky and Hutch could be mighty pleased with my selection. It’s a Ford Ranchero, a muscle-car-based pick-up that ticks all of the cool automobile packing containers. Is it a head-turning basic? It hails from the ’70s, so in fact it’s. Does it have a charismatic engine? Its American V8 is positively overflowing with appeal and charisma. Might or not it’s the star automobile of a Hollywood film? With such street presence, I wouldn’t be shocked if LA comes calling. All this in a sensible pick-up. It’s unbelievable.

In actual fact, it’s the most effective vehicles ever made. And it’ll admire in worth.
OY: It’s barely a pick-up, Mark. Plus, it seems to be like a demise machine. I think about a pothole is sufficient to trigger disaster. Does that sound cool to you?
