tellin you guys right now, a coworkers of mine would win this. I dont even know wtf this thing is but, it's 80% rust, has peeled off duct tape residue around the hatch, no rear window, rusted out floor board, ang generally looks like it should catch fire at any second. Add in that its a wagon and boom. POS central.

Oh man...where do i begin?



Here is the honey wagon. The tail-puller. This thing has resulted in more numbers and more ass than the cobra has. We've owned this bad-boy since it was new. My parents bought it from the original owner in 92' so its cherry was barely popped until it got to me. 127,000 miles on this wonderful machine and is somehow trucking along.

Creature comforts? This things has none. Manual windows. Manual locks (that don't work). Manual 4x4 hubs. Rag Top. The works. Although, it does have a baller stereo head unit that i put in so i didn't have to put my phone on the dash so i could listen to music.

And how about that weight reduction!. Rust? What rust? There can't be any rust in the floor pans if the floor pans aren't there anymore, right? This baby is falling apart body panel by body panel. Shock towers? Frame? Floor Pans? Even the doors are rusting away. Hell it would be easier to list the number of body parts that don't have any rust on them (none).

Seat belts? Nope. They don't like to work. The driver's seatbelt works and that's about the extent of my safety features. The rear seatbelts aren't held in by any body panel anymore since that piece of the quarter panel has rusted away. They are literally held in by the vinyl door pieces in the back. Airbags? Those are for pussies. I'll give you an oh-shit bar on the passenger side and a nice solid piece of plastic to bust my face on if i ever get it. I'm 99% positive that if i ever get hit in this thing that the whole car will deteriorate.

Speaking of rust. How about my killer exhaust system? Or lack there of. I haven't ran a muffler (or exhaust after the "down pipe?" on this honey-wagon in the 4 years i have been driving it. It rusted off and i have no want to spend the money to put an exhaust system on. The sweet purr of the 8v I4 engine leaves nothing more to be desired.

4x4 isn't working on it currently. 3 out of the 4 wheels want to engage so it's limping down the street. Shock and struts are blown. Tires are bald as can be. Dents everywhere. What more could you ask from a beater? This thing has character.

And above all things...This thing is BRIGHT YELLOW. What doesn't scream shitty-beater like a loud, two toned screaming bullet? Between that and it being a "cute little barbie jeep" why wouldn't this thing pull tail left and right?

I am astounded that i get more compliments in this puppy than i did when i had the Cobra running.

I'll throw my '85 FSB into the mix.



Year/Make/Model: 1985 Ford Bronco XLT
Engine: 351w with 298k miles
Transmission: C6 3-speed auto
Percentage of Rust: 60-65%
Price Paid: $800
Issues: Heater doesn't work, A/C works but only through floor vents, neither driver nor passenger side windows roll down, the rear glass is busted out, tailgate is dented in, it has 2 cylinders with 15+% leakdown, both exhaust manifolds are cracked, ignition key doesn't work (I started it with a screwdriver for over 2 years before finally wiring up a push button), the radio doesn't work, factory 30 year old torque converter is worn out and slipping, and the windshield wipers on work on the fastest setting. Despite all of this, it made the trip to Columbia, SC last month without a hitch. The 4WD still works also.

Here's some more pictures of it.



Quarter panels rusting out.




The passenger side. I almost burned the damn thing down on a drunken adventure out in Texas a couple years ago.


The radiator overflow tank is cracked so I "fixed" the issue.


Underside rust.


The factory muffler finally rusted off and went tumbling out from under the truck while I was driving down some backroad in Ohio. I replaced it with a simple turndown.


Hard to tell in the picture but the flange on the manifold rusted through so I have the Y-pipe held up there with a block and a clotheshanger.


Here is my rigged up push button start that I just tuck back in the cigarette butt holder when I park it.

60-65 rust is a strong contender

Fuck it im posting it anyways.

Look at this fucking beauty. Made with pure Egyptian sand blended in the paint for that pussy magnet gold.

Dual cam because single cams are for faggots.

Real BBS/Work/Volk hubcaps on true JDM GM made steel wheels.

The whole floor is wroughted out because the tears of volkswagens have soaked the road.

Pleather seats are all ripped to fuck because its vintage and fuck real leather.

JB welded the oilpan leaks because of all the pussys at GM make the engine to fast shit just falls apart in the wind.

Plastic body pannels so when I hit a hooker downtown the dent pops right out.

Since im a respected fucking baller I paid 0$ for this bad boy.

Sold it because NASA told me it would beat them in the fucking space race.

Does it count if my Mustang is the beater car?

Paid $1000 for her, beat the hell out of it, the interior is stripped from the front seats back, and I have had her for six years with the only things going bad on her being the intake manifold, coil on packs, and alternator.




I have not spent one dollar having someone else working on this car. I have done the wrap, window tint, alignment (toe and camber) 5-speed and dash swap, and even changed the tires on the 16 inch drift spares with 2 flat head screw drivers. The definition of a beater.
