    IDK what you want us to say about that truck. I hope you didn't give much more than scrap value for it. Oh, and get a tetanus shot.

    I'd give the brake lines a close look if still factory.

    Power steering lines replaced in October because they rusted out and made it leak. Lol

    I know, thats what michigan does. The trim around around the moldings saved it from rusting a lot more.

    I’d cut the remainder of those running boards off with a grinder. After that, I don’t know where I’d stop.

    I'm originally from Pontiac, and also lived in the U.P. for a short while, so I shouldn't be shocked by the amount of rust...that being said..... :confused:

    I guess being here in the south since 1989 has spoiled me a bit.... I actually passed by literally 5 sports in the local junkyard a few weekends ago, with zero to very little rust.....

    I'd say that if it runs great, drive it 'til it crumbles apart!

    I like the color black sport.
    But she definitely needs some new rockers, don't know what the underneath looks likes hopefully better.
    I'm curious do you have to get an inspection every year? Here in Ma. we have to get an inspection once a year (the month you registered the vehicle), sorry to say but your truck would never pass.There strict on body rust and holes.

    No, in Michigan, we don't have emmissions or inspection here. If we did, it would never pass and half of the cars on the road up here probaly would fail. But every year, you pay for a new license plate sticker and I think thats it. Probaly registration also. Other than that, nothing like that here.

    Fixing that truck would be a ridiculous waste of money, and not really any sort of practical. You’d be 30x better just buying a different one.

    In the 3rd pic.
    I thought that was a rusted out muffler that fell off the truck
