Hell,im staying in tenino right now.
I havent made it so (or figured out how) to post pics yet... radiator was leaking out, driver side fender and valance is crushed into tire, hood is bent up..


I found the easiest for posting pics now is postimage... sign up... upload a pic.. use the "hot link for forum " button.... paste here.... i only use my phone and this was the easiest.....
Some like imgur...
And flicker.... but using my phone o could figure those out.....

I hope you towed the truck home....
And it may look bad but almost sounds more cosmetic.... anything can be fixed...

It is really mostly cosmetic, and the radiator.
To be honest, im young, dumb and i was uninsured, not fully employed, so towing my truck wasnt a choice i had.
Its at an impound. Tomorrow it goes to the insurance co. Impound, and they will be trying to settle with me after that. Theyre calling it a total loss because its old and uncommon so its more expensive to repair it.
I havent gotten to express my options yet. But i plan on getting my truck back.

I hope it works out for you....
If on a budget get a replacement radiator and use a couple trees and some comealongs and a big ass hammer may not be pretty but at least you can drive it.....
That's the nice thing about old metal....
Deal with making it pretty when money allows it....

By radiator support do you mean the front piece that holds everything on? Lol. How much for that and fenders?

If somebody wants this truck I have enough parts to make it complete for a bit extra


Do you have the front/radiator support and fenders that were mentioned in this post? I am interested, and will most likely need them once this all is settled

Hell ya.... I had an old pos I had to do that to.. slid off the road and hit a telephone pole... I'm pretty sure I even tied the bumper back on with rope... wasn't worth keeping but it was all I had at the moment...
Whatever it takes....

If you got the cash to fix proper even better.... I would fix enough to drive then acquire the neccessary parts to fit properly.....

If anyone is interested in buying this truck for parts or repair I'd be interested in selling it, idk how much a scrap yard would give, and dont really want to put it in a scrap yard to be honest lol. But with my current situation being what it is, im hard on space, and need to sell or move this truck asap.

We once pulled a concrete post out of the ground, but was straight enough to drive.

If you can't pull the parts you want before its towed away, I'd try to buy it back.
I had a tow truck driver call the cops on me for doing that at the scene. Got what I needed though. :fu:

"I can spend time working on the Dattos, or wasting money at the strip club. You make the call." :D


I'll put on chain mail and a dirt bike tire jock strap and drive it!!!!!
