@RobbieD made a suggestion in the Truck of The Month thread:

"There should be some kind of recognition for those of us who have beloved trucks that unfortunately "have seen better days".
Along with the TOTM contest, how about having an STD? (Shittiest Truck Drivable). Now that's contest I would enter! "


I don't know that I want to call it an STD, but the idea of picking an ugly worn out old truck each month sounds like a great idea.

Rules:

You can nominate yourself.

It has to be a Ranger based vehicle (RBV = Ranger, Bronco II, Explorer).

The photo has to be recent.

Winner:

The winners will be chosen by our forum members. Voting starts on the 15th.

The winner will get a Piece of Shit decal and entered into the Piece of Shit of The Year contest.

if we get enough participation we'll create a Puece of Shit calendar

Good Luck!

Toonces drives a Ranger . . . . just not very well.
Wait, are you saying Rusty is a POS, or are you nominating his truck??
No, Sir. I am saluting greatness, by nominating his world-famous truck.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Shitbox of the month.

I may qualify.

I could possibly be convinced to run 2 calendars.

I'm kinda warm on that one. Will it make it to McDonalds?
I don't see why not. It looks clean under it, so one can assume it moves...

Not really; I'm just trying to shift blame and deny responsibility. (unsuccessfully, it appears)

Wonderful idea! I'll have some meds too!

I dont know what his truck looks like
It's my blue '84. Since I painted it 14 years ago, trees have fallen on it twice; two times it has hit a deer (well, one hit me, the blind bastard), and it hasn't been washed in at least 5 years. I'm also experimenting with growing edible and medicinal mold cultures on it. Other than that, it's beautiful.


but since he suggested it...im gonna assume....so im gonna nominate @RobbieD

If people learn to creatively take good pictures of their POS’s….

besides, Rusty’s truck has already been in a regular TRS calendar and it was a great photo.

I don't know that I want to call it an STD, but the idea of having a Piece of Shit of The Month sounds interesting.

Rules:

You can nominate yourself.

It has to be a Ranger based vehicle (RBV = Ranger, Bronco II, Explorer).

The photo has to prove that the truck is still drivable and has to prove that the photo is recent by taking a photo of it in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant with the restaurant's food bag sitting on your hood. This will prove that the truck is still being driven and that the photo was recently taken for this contest.

Winner:

The winners will be chosen by our forum members. Voting starts on the 15th.

The winner will get a Piece of Shit decal and entered into the Piece of Shit of The Year contest.

Good Luck!
Does it have to be a “fast food restaurant”? Or can we take our POS’s to classier joints?
