Default The show me your winter beater thread


Well it's getting colder here in North East Ohio again, so it's time to get out the winter beater again, just wondering what kind of junk the rest of you guys have. Mine is a 1999 Ford F150 with the 4.6 v8, plenty of rust, and 238,000 miles. She looks better in the pic than she really is, but has never let me down. So come on every body, lets see a picture of your junk!

Rain or shine, winter, spring, summer and fall.



Sometimes it is just too bad and I break this baby out:


Minus the trailer and sporty. It does have the top on it right now too.

That Blazer looks to be in good shape, if it was here in Ohio there would be nothing left of it, the salt eats everything. I cut the rocker panels off my truck cuz they were so rusty, and the beds been patched up, gotta put a gas tank in it now because it's rusted out too.

^^unfortunately it looks better than it is. Chevy didn't do any undercoating or painting of the underside which rusts even here in "no season" san diego.

I am kinda looking for a cheap beater car. Something to drive when it is too nasty for the bike. I hate using my truck for the short trip to work and back, 2013 Ram Cummins dually, can't be doing it any good.

Yeah, I know a guy with a kinda rough Dyna that he rides in the winter, I don't trust the bad drivers around here enough to ride in the snow.
