What the Scout

  • I've always thought Scouts were awesome and I've been keeping an eye out for the perfect starter truck. @the_blaze and I drove to southern Utah to go check out a 1964 Scout 800, and that's where I fell in love. It's a hot mess for sure, and @the_blaze told me to pass and wait for another Scout to show up, but it spoke to me. This truck was the one and I'm super excited about it! We've come to find out that it was an Air Force Scout 800 which means not all the parts (doors, etc) are 800 specific. It's a frankenstein of a vehicle and needs more than just a little TLC, but it has potential. Welcome to Extreme Makeover -- Scout edition.
