    Buy a plane ticket down to California or Arizona......road trip a rust free truck home.....we are friendly down here, despite what the news may tell you.:) Fixing that thing, if it's possible, would just be about bragging rights. I've seen a few early 80s models around lately for sale for around 3000-5000 USD. We're talking nice, fixed up daily drivers with little, if any rust at all.

    scented candles? Car air fresheners were harder to find and more expensive in the 80's.

    Lol the only decent thing on that truck is the crack free dash, and what appears to be a SR5 cluster.
