That was a '98. I fixed that one up for a buddy of mine. Had to trailer it to the house because when you turned the key, it would empty the tank through the rotted fuel lines. :funny:

Forgot to ask him if it's still running. This was last year. Thing was a NIGHTMARE to work on. I refused to do the rear wheel bearings. SO much rust - 20x worse than the engine. That engine was the only good part of the car! :D

Looking at those photos of rust reinforce my plan to NEVER drive my newish truck on my chlorided dirt road or on salted roads.. This truck has to last for at least 15 years.

Sounds like a speech by Mayor Menino, Boston. Was as intellectually stimulating, anyway ... :D :lol:
