    I was going through all the rigs i've had (shown in my sig as past rigs) when i saw this ugly old thing. I only owned it cause it was given to me if i could get it running and removed from the property. It had a nice big 413 in it, and i used the utility bins for a trailer, then sold it for $800

    Anyway this rig has to rank up there for ugly. (although i did kinda have a little appriciation for it) but that didn't make it anymore attractive.

    79 suburban rusted out from the firewall to the taillights. Drove it for a month with only two wheels having brakes. It was the epitome of ugly, sold it for 280$.

    the grey bomber, an early 80's Cutlas station wagon, It got me from point A to point B many a time. I know you said rig but this thing was ugly, second worst was a 90 Ram Charger. I think that counts as a rig

    We refered to it as the brown turd. It was a 78 Ford Van that was painted well, turd brown. Drove it for 150k miles. Blew it up racing to my daughters birth. 90 miles a hour for 5 hours stopping long enough to get fuel.

    The ugliest vehicle I've ever owned was a 2000 GTP...........because its my ex-wife's car. :haha: :haha: :haha:

    Of all the trucks I've owned, there is no ugly quality to them. They all have "character" instead of rust, dents, etc. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. :bow:

    I've got one of those old dodges sitting in the back 40 at the farm. Slant 6 / 3 on the tree, regular cab fleetside -- I can't give the thing away...

    I know someone wanting to pay for one of theose old Dodges.....

    But that is not the question, I don't have pics but I am sure mine was the ugliest, hands down, the reason i don't have pics was because it was a few years back and my first truck I owned, paid $35 for it. It was only 10 years old too but it was 4x4 and it was UGLY! It ran great though! A 1963 or 4 International Travelall, it was a very faded slate blue with plenty of surface rust (no real rust, this was Phoenix), a couple of leaves in the front pacs were broken so it was a natural lowrider, but you could sleep on those bench seats and not touch the doors! It was a party wagon, sold it for $350, still with the broken springs.....

    My first car, a faded metallic pea green 78 Grand Prix. It was ugly as a mud hen, but it had power everything and hauled ass when you stomped on the throttle. I got rid of it when I went into the Army, and by then it had a bent rear axle flange and a rod knock. :doah: Yeah, I rodded the crap out of that car :haha:

    Sorry, no pics, this was B4 the net.

    1970 F350. 352 4 speed. Red primer cab,flaking off to reveal the safety yellow underneath. One green door, one blue over white door. The fenders matched, blue over white with the Ranger chrome strip. The hood was black.

    The first date I took my wife on, the truck scared her. We were headed down 101, bout 55mph, when the front of the cab top popped up about 4 inches. It had rusted out along the drip rail:eek1: .

    The next day it got even uglier. I used plumbers strap and metal roofing screws to hold the front edge of the roof down.:doah:
