    This garage/room is strictly for ugly trucks only!

    Rules are as follows:

    Post a pic of your ugly truck and also tell a little about it.
    If your truck has a name, post it for all to see.
    How many miles
    trucks must still run and be used on a weekly basis.
    what do you do with your ugly truck


    Ok Here is my ugly truck:


    [​IMG]


    1990 Ford F150 Lariat XLT
    It is painted a grey and white bed liner paint. You can see paint brush strokes where a paint brush was used ( nearly all of it).
    It doesn't have a muffler at this time because it was full of holes, rubbing against the driveshaft, rusted, and made more noise on than off.


    This truck is called FRANKENTRUCK

    It has 178,000 + miles and gets a whopping 14.22mpg! it still runs and I use it daily for work. I also use it to haul a lot of stuff since its a beefy 5.0L 302 V8 engine with a high suspension system. I got new tires on it recently.

    Sense my 1984 Suburban blew up I have been driving a 1996 Chevy truck, V6 4X4.

    Makes about 15 MPG on gas.
    20 MPQ on oil.
    No idea how many miles it has on it

    Its a farm truck an I beat the poo out of it. Cab mount bolts have broke, the welds in the bed have let go, an I think I have kinked the fraim in a few places

    HA! I knew I would get some southern boys on here, especially you Reb.

    My truck bed has a loose bolt I found out this morning. As I turn right, it pops loud!

    20mpq on oil.....same as mine!

    Looked an its showing 196K miles... It may be closer to 25 miles to the quart. I usually lose oil pressure at about the 100 mile mark an have to pour a gallon in it to fill it up. Everyone thinks its a diesel like the suburban was. She rolls some black coal going down the highway....

    I have this rule that I never buy what I cant pay cash for which keeps me in the $1500 range. That way I can enjoy them an not cry over them. I remember playing in one of my trucks. I has some "female" friends with me ripping up a two track, took a corner sideways an centered a tree with bed. Never stopped.. Girls kept waiting for me to get mad but I though it was funny. Truck lasted 8 years of that junk till someone crashed in to me.

    I have backup to though. I have a tire shredding mustang GT that I also have $1500 in. I only have it cause the price was right...

    140K miles showing in the mustang but it broke an stopped counting long ago.

    Wish I had taken a picture of this guys truck, but I was
    laughing too hard...

    My daughter and I pulled into the local supermarket and
    this truck came in before we got out of the car. It was an
    old 70's something Dodge, straight bed, ugly pea green
    paint and the coolest exhaust I ever saw...duals, straight
    up the back of the bed. And they were made out of house
    down spouts. Still white, and even had the drain turnout
    on the top.

    Had to be the ugliest truck in the world. I wouldn't of drove
    it to a demolition derby in the dark.

    Sadly, that wasn't the worst thing of the day...a family in
    a minivan pulled in, between us. It was a woman, a few
    young children...and a seeing-eye dog. (shepard)...Understand,
    the lady (a VERY big lady, drove in and got out with her seeing
    eye dog and proceeded to shop in the store. Lady went 'blind'
    when she got out of the van.

    Are you really looking at Reb's truck?

    I mean, I count three guns...two in the back window and
    that squirrel gun mounted in the bed. (With a scope no less!)
    THIS is what people drive on the streets in Georgia? Remind
    me to mark Georgia off my vacation list. It don't look safe.

    That's the REAL South....up here, if I was to mount a machine
    gun in the bed of my dually...I would probably get in trouble.

    Now, what does a Georgia farmer need with his gun mounted
    in the bed? Guarding your crops? Then...I gotta wonder 'bout
    what you're growing?

    The more I laugh about it... A fully loaded truck, and a tire-turning
    Mustang get-a-way car...


    Through the years I've bought two get-a-way cars...First was a
    Dodge Little Red Express, a drug dealers get a way ride. He got
    a five-to-ten, and his woman sold the truck.

    Second one was Monte Carlo...the man used it to rob the bank
    he and his wife dealt at. Cops were waiting for him when he got
    home. He didn't even wear a mask. The clerks knew him, knew
    his wife, knew his car. Not a very well thought out plan. His wife
    sold us the car bus money so she could go see him in prison.

    Now...tell us, you need a get a way ride, WHY?

    Spook....(let me know if you need bail money) LOL

    Zombies man zombies. If you turn you TV on they keep showing zombies everywhere in Georgia.


    On a serious note, when I was growing up I remember watching Dukes of Hazzard on TV an not knowing it was supposed to be a comedy. It was to much like normal life here. Family had a bad rep an the locals were out for anyone with our last name. No orange dodge but there was a blue nova, a white vega an many more lesser known cars burning up the roads. Brother had a caddy an I had a AMC back in those days. Have not needed a fast car in a few years though, Sheriffs change, I have gotten older.

    You are right though, I cant cross on to Ohio armed like I normally am. Ohio treats everyone from Ga an many other states like felons an are pretty strict on the locals too. I can drive up to that border armed to the teeth though an not get a second look. Dont keep the gun on the back driving around though. It would get rusty an probably fall off. A .22 an a AR-15 are always in the window thought. Nothing in the mustang yet cause I am not sure where to mount them...

    By the way, some of the people in my pictures an videos I posted live in Bellefontaine, Ohio.

    An sense you brought it up, here is a picture of my friend Hawgs truck.

    This evening we went to a football game with my
    daughter...and walking in the parking lot I saw a
    car that really qualified for this thread...

    Non-script faded blue car, crashed in the front bumper
    /left fender area. The bumper had been drilled and sewn
    together with baling twine. Very low-dollar repair.
