Do You Have A Rusty Truck?

Sat Jan 06, 2007 11:27 am

I just felt like posting something stupid. Do you have a rusty truck? Nothing like a rusted out pile of junk truck, such as this 1986 Chevrolet 3/4 ton. This is my third pitiful truck. There is something satisfying about it. You can throw junk in it and run over curbs and such and not worry about it. Michigan is great because we have no inspection at all so as long as you can buy a license plate you can drive it. I have a rusty 85 Honda too, but nothing beats a old sad truck. I have two rust free cars. 1980 Mercedes 300TD and 2005 Dodge Magnum.

This truck is so sad it was free. It had no rear brakes, no lights, no signals, and a rusted out fuel tank. I was able to fix it with junk I had laying around the shop and a gas tank from a buddy, who had it laying around the farm. If you have a rusty truck or car post a pick. I always wanted to have a car show full of junk.

Perfect for running around on the old ranch and oilfield roads around here! I learned to drive in a 1976 Chevy 1/2 ton with a 350. Lots of fun!

The gas tank in my 86 came from a 76 1/2 ton. My buddy Zac put a new bed on his 76, it was from an 83 with only a single tank. So the other tank came out and into my truck. It was like an organ donation.

When I was a kid a friend of mine's dad had a 78 Blazer, with the cool woodgrain dash, with a rotary dial phone in it. He was lawyer and I remember I got to use it twice to call my parents when we were late coming home from boy scout functions. I would love to have a rotary dial phone in my car.

Well right now my truck would best be considered frozen as it is -42 outside, I have it plugged in though and hopefully it will start when I leave here. But secondly it would be considered rusty and with multi-colored body panels it is a good Alaskan bush truck.

Me too. A buddy of mine has a 78 Ford F-250 from Canada and it has a little sign on the dash near the heater controls that says Super Heater. I have never seen that on a US model. NAPA does list it in their computer for heater cores. It is a larger core. I saw it when I bought a core for my 77 F-150.

Same in Michigan and Missouri. The only downside is that you you have to keep a log and are limited to 3000 miles per year. You are only allowed to drive to/from repair shops, cars shows, races, club events etc. The state doesn't check but some cops will ask for the log book if you get pulled over. It happened to me in St. Louis once.

In Michigan we can even use an old plate from the year of your car/truck. So if you have a 1955 Chevy and you find a 55 plate you can take it to the Secretary of State office and get it registered to your car. I am looking for a 1980 Michigan tag by the way. I am a bit concerned if the cops will give me trouble when I drive it in another state. It would be legal, but I wonder if the average cop in another state would know Michigan allows that kind of plate.

I drive a '93 Sunbird in the winters and a '93 Jimmy in the summer. Both have a bit of rust on them, but the Sunbird is worse, so I let that get eaten away by the Michigan road salt in the winter rather than the 4x4 Jimmy.

I'm not sure if you can get just a 1980 sticker tag for Michigan. I believe in 1980 they simply renewed the black-and-white 1979 plates with a sticker. If you can find one of those, you're in luck. The blue plates started in 1983.

(Fun fact: I have at least one Michigan plate from every year from 1966 til 1979 ... and of course a bunch of blue plates)

A know a guy, Dave Van Hine, from Frankenmuth, who has a Michigan plate from every year. They are all tacked up in his garage. I met the guy collecting brewery memorabilia and I have given him three plates, 2001, 2002, and 2004. He also has a bar made entirely out of Carling Black label cans from the 70s that he drank. He is an interesting character.

We've got a 1996 F-150. It's not too old and rusty yet, but we plan on keeping it until the wheels fall off.

Its great for hauling junk and camping.

Well, you're not a real Alaskan unless you have a rusted out truck in the yard, and I have 2. (Used to be 2 and a rusted out kitchen trailer, but somebody bought the trailer). They're not mine, but the owner of the duplex, but she's in Korea for the winter, so I can pretend they're mine for now. If it wasn't dark and freakin' cold out (-30F), I would go take a pic because they're special trucks. One is an old (20 years maybe) grey GMC Jimmy that has definitely seen better days. The other is my favorite, a really old purple/pink Land Cruiser or something like that with spectaclar rust holes. I think it's from the late 60's/early 70's. I have no clue if it runs, but no vehicle truly dies in Alaska, so someone around here can make it run.

As a side note, Fairbanks does not salt the roads, so used vehicles up here may be beat to hell, but they usually aren't rusted too badly.

Almost the same rules, but allowed some recreational driving. A 150 or 250 mile radius is the farthest you can supposedly drive from your house. I don't have the nads to take mine that far. While not allowed to drive to/from work, I figure that 1 trip each way a week is ok. A log isn't required. I have never been stopped and checked either. As for driving out of state, it isn't allowed in the rules, but those are the rules of my state. All states would have to have the same rules in order for that to work, but they don't.

Yep, I didn't know if the US had the only people who did that to their trucks. Mine is lifted 4 inches, and has 35 inch tires on it.

I've had three of them. I tend to keep a truck for a long time.

1939 Dodge, flathead six three on the floor. Bought it for fifty bucks, licensed, insured, street-legal and in showroom condition except the frame and engine were browned with surface rust. I let the insurance lapse because I only drove it on the ranch. Sold it to my stepfather. He was going down a logging road one day and met a truck. He'd neglected the brakes so he couldn't stop and I think the truck driver just didn't like him. He drove the pickup up the bank and the Kenworth sideswiped him, smashing in the cab and tearing the bed off the frame. I got it back but pushed it off a cliff when I went in the Army.

1961 Dodge 3/4 ton, long-bed with a 318 V-8. Ugliest vehicle I've ever owned. I stripped a hundred feet of useless electrical wire out of it including some Romex. One day the throttle stuck wide open but I drove it home anyway. I just turned the key off when it got going too fast and back on before it stopped. Finally sold it to a struggling kid for one dollar.

1988 Ford F-150 4WD with the 300CI six. "The Bitch" Love this thing. Don't care what I throw in the back. Don't mind when the brush has grown in on the roads up in the mountains. Keep it mechanically solid and don't care what it looks like. Of course I wash and wax it often because that is good for preserving the bodywork, but I don't do this to make it pretty. That would be a lost cause. The rust is confined to the tailgate and one dent.

I wouldn't give a nickel for a new, pretty pickup. I'd rather drive a car if I have to be careful with the damn thing. The bitch is my lifeline to town when the snow piles up.

Here in AZ rust is a rare sight thankfully. I used to have a Land Rover that I used to offroad a lot and that thing was the ultimate rust bucket. Slam the doors too hard and rust flakes would fall off the chassis!

So I do have a couple of trucks and neither of them have rust. Yee-hah!

Quoting Falstaff (Thread starter):

By the way the rust you show in your pictures is exceedingly rare in other parts of the country. It is the result of your putting salt on your roads.

For those who have not seen this done, when there is a little snow or ice on the roads they spread salt on it. It melts the ice by lowering the freeze point of the water. Problem is it prevents your thousand dollar fender-bender by guaranteeing the total, uninsured loss of your car over about a ten year period due to rusting. That whole part of the world you can see cars driving down the highway with a fender flapping - held on by only a couple of bolts.

I just learned, to my horror and disgust, that due to the invasion of California refugees here in northern Nevada, NDoT has started salting the roads in some places. Way to go California! Destroy the Lake Tahoe / Truckee River watershed and Pyramid Lake with salt runoff just because you are too lazy or stupid to learn how to drive on ice.

Damn I hate that state!

That is a good motor. I had a 66 with that in it. Ran great. You didn't need a indicator to check for cylinder tapper, you could see it, especially in number 5. New bearings and she was good again. That truck was rusty. I painted it with a brush. I had license plates for a floor patches. It doesn't look too rusty in the picture, but it was. House paint covers rust well. I never should have sold that truck. I had a AOD out of a 92 Town car in it. I towed my boat with it. That was kind of scary on four drums. No radio, no lighter, no arm rests, it was a real basic truck. It did have the optional 300 CID and a long bed. The bed was the best part of the truck. The cab was rusty as could be, but the bed was great. I got $1000 for it three years ago.

Yes. Also much of the city is sitting on top of salt mines. So the ground is has salt in it too. I have seen less rusty cars in places where they use a lot of salt. They really go to town with salt around here. Since they mine it here, it costs less.

It was a real pain in the ar5e in England. Every year cars over a certain age have to pass a test called an 'MOT' which determines whether or not they're safe to be on the road. Needless to say there were a lot of checks on the chassis, and rust holes were not acceptable. So every year I would have the fun task of cutting off large pieces of rust and replacing them with steel.

If it wasn't for all the stickers on my Land Rover it would have fallen apart a long time ago!

My neighbor has a 1958 Chevy Apache (4 headlights, small window, 283/3 on the tree). Drove it since it was new (he was like 15). Still drives it to work when his $100k Yuppie EuroTrash mobile is in the shop.

A good highschool buddy had a 1970 Chevy (regular bed, fleetside?) -- the truck was fairly beat up...he dropped a 454 in there, Saginaw tranny and an Eddlebrock QudraJet carb. For a piece, that thing sure fricking' moved.

No replacement for displacement. And nothin' like an old truck.

Remember the cartoon with the car with its tongue hanging out? Thats my Jimmy if it tried to make the trip. Each tank of gas requires the same amount of oil.  Sad

Actually is a 5 stroke... The standard 4 + the one I have trying to get it places, smelling the fumes coming thru the floorboard, because the exhaust is broke off right past the Y pipe.

My Mercedes had that problem for a while. I would drive a 100 miles and use a quart of oil. Once I replaced the gasket between the engine block and the oil filter tower the leak went away. It sucked to fix, but it doesn't stain the garage and driveway anymore.

Is it a diesel? If so, was it the style oil filter that had all those vacuum lines around it, and if you accidently caused a leak, the engine wouldn't shut off? I hated those.

I have a bunch of rocks for a driveway... it's gravel and my parking spot has just big purple rocks. Oh well... I'll get it fixed eventually.
