The Fucking Champion (my ride)

IMG_0105.JPG (1 MB)

My wife and I inherited this truck from her dad. The transmission was slipping, the brakes wobbled, there was an ever present burning oil smell. We were not enthusiastic about keeping it. Then it got pancaked in a 6-car pileup just outside of Seattle, WA. After some work with a crowbar and hammer we made it to our destination 80 miles away, after which we decided to just take the insurance money to total it and drive it as far as it would go til it died.

That was 2 years ago. Since then it has made the round trip between the SF Bay Area and La Conner WA three times, as well as hauling many tons of gravel, wood chips and masonry for our various landscaping projects around here, not to mention towing around a 1 ton ball made out of bras (long story).

Now the registration is waaay expired, and there’s no way it would pass the WA inspection, not to mention getting a salvage title. We’re going to have to get rid of it sooner or later, and I’m really going to miss it.

That green tin lid jammed in the grill is the mechanism by which I aim the headlight. I guess its about time for another tape-job, too.
