April 2013 TOTM

It is the special Truck of the Month (TOTM) contest time:

Mother Earth Hasn’t Reclaimed it Yet?

Yep, you guessed it. The theme for this month will be our less than perfect specimens; our beaters, our beasts, our rust-buckets, our TRUCKS. Now here are the rules or criteria for the vehicles

To be an eligible beater
  • Open to all years and models of Trucks, Blazers, Suburbans, Tahoes, Yukons, and Jimmys.
  • The nominee must be a board member and the current owner of the truck.
  • It must be road worthy and currently legal (until the cops catch you) to be on the road.
  • It must have an unmatching paint scheme (no all primers)
  • It must have at least three other distinctly viewable issues. This includes things like:
+Missing panels
+Dents and Holes (large and small)
+Dominate rust formations (not patina)
+Anything that might make someone afraid to go near it for fear of catching some sort of disease
  • If a truck was selected as a 2012 TOTM winner then you are ineligible. If you were nominated but were not selected as a TOTM winner then you may be nominated and compete in this month's category.

To Nominate:

You or someone else may nominate the vehicle. The nominee must be a board member and the current owner of the truck. Once you decide on who you wish to nominate, just add your nomination to this thread. We will need two pictures minimum (at least one full view of the vehicle) with/for the nomination as well as the owner’s board name, and the Make/Model/Year of vehicle.

Nominees will run through March 25. The first 15 nominees that meet the criteria will participate in the contest. I will PM the nominees to get any additional data or pictures if they have not already been provided. If the owner has a preferred picture they want used in the contest, please let me know in a PM. You can PM me for an e-mail address in case anyone has problems resizing the pictures for the board. A Poll Thread will be set up by March 26 in this board area and an announcement will be posted on the Discussion Boards to notify all that voting has begun. The Poll will run thru the morning of April 1 and the official announcement of the winner will be on the afternoon of April 1. The announcement of the TOTM winner will be posted through the General Discussion Board area.

Re: April 2013 TOTM

I'll throw my hat in the ring. I have a 1950 Chevy 5 window. She sputtered back to life last summer after 30 years in a field. Its obviously multiple colors, 1 fender in primer from a repair. And the cab floor is all rust holes underneither the card board and Home Depot remanant mat flooring. Even with mismatched tires It will hit speeds in excess of 45 mph.

Gotta show the big holes

One last pic but with differnt wheels and seats.

Re: April 2013 TOTM

Sweet a TOTM I can go for! Mine is daily driven and has AT LEAST three issues! Its registered as a 57' but actually has a 58' cab that I converted to a 57'. Fell into a fleetside bed deal a couple months ago and couldn't be happier with it.
