Hey GearZ Nation,

I cut the chord on cable and have recently joined GearZ Nation so I can keep up with Stacey.  Ok, no one can really keep up with Stacey. [smile]

I am located near Denver Colorado.

I have been following Stacey since he hosted "Trucks!"...
I have always enjoyed Stacey's ability to simplify projects. 
Watching and "learning" from Stacey on GearZ, gave me the confidence to COMPLETE a full rotisserie restoration of my 1966 Ford Ranchero.

Why a Ranchero you say?
First season of "Trucks!" Stacey and Kevin Tetz featured a super nice 1967 Ford Ranchero:

Then Stacey built Copperhead...omg!

So, I wondered, what would happen if I combined the concepts of these two geniuses?  [crazy]

...and that was all it took to inspire my 1966 Ford Ranchero project aka Ranchero El Cobre.

I am not Spanish, but I call the project "Ranchero El Cobre",(The Copper Ranchero)--playing off the Spanish name of the car/truck "Ranchero" or Farmer.

This is the first car/truck I have painted in 20 years.  I am a graduate from Kevin Tetz's Paintucation series.  Here is a shot of the '66 Ranchero tailgate sporting some "GearZ Nation" swag.  [thumb]

Just a teaser picture for now... [cool]

Note: the "New Car Delivery Center" on the door/window...thx to my local Ford Parts Manager!

Just an introduction for now, more to come.  I Look forward to interacting with all of GearZ Nation.  My goal is to use the car to inspire and pass on what I have learned to young and old alike!

One day I hope to get to a GearZ Nation Autorama event and perhaps tour the GearZ TV set.

Peace, enjoy,
Colorado Joe

Colorado Joe,

Welcome.  You should fit in real well here.

We would like more pix of your Ranchero.
