1997 Ford Ranger
Driver: Andrew Wahlstrom
Co-driver: Clifford Wahlstrom
Andrew Wahlstrom and his father, Cliff, were a great addition to the Ultimate Adventure. We were all moved by young Andrew's driving skills and motivation to finish the trails. He wheeled like a seasoned UA veteran, and his Ranger performed exceptionally well. He experienced a few mechanical failures but was more than capable of digging right in and fixing them.
