go down south. i used to go through trucks every 2-3 years due them literally falling apart.also even the rotted turd blazers and pick up trucks out here people wanted like 1500+. im from chicago area and found a frame and body for $350 down in central mississippi the guy stole all the drivetrain parts out of it and was just gonna scrap it. only cost me $250 in gas but boy was it worth it. truck is a 86 and even the factory exaust clamps unscrewed, quite amazing only rust is its just starting by the cab corners

this is whats considered rusty down there lol




and heres the truck when i got it home




made for a interesting time getting it off the trailer too

ive known a few people who have drove them back also. if you look at the long run the amount of money youll be saving not having to deal with rusty brake lines and replacing floors its worth it
