Re: Patina, shop logo'd, rusty trucks?

Any of you guys have any pictures of the old Sport Truck "Circus Wagon"??

I know it does not really fall into the patina catagory but it was a cool truck. I used to have a bunch of it but my computer monkey ate them all....

Number 98, the Circus wagon belonged to Jim Aust who worked for Sport Truck. He's a regular on the HAMB (jalopy journal) and he goes by his name so he would be easy to find in the forums. I bet you could ask him over there and get some pics.

You're right 98 I do remember seeing him on here now that you mention it, (starting to get those senior moments) oh well it was worth a shot.

Obviously not a Chevy, but similar to Rokcrln's. Apparently was an old Air Force truck. Saw this on Power Tour as well.

It's the when exposed metal gets that light coat of surface rust and it's mixed in on a vehicle that has worn and thin original paint.
That's how I'd describe it anyways.

Re: Patina, shop logo'd, rusty trucks?

First one now belongs to another board member, but i always pictured it slammed on steelies ----- 2nd one is my current driver -- its not rusty, but has some serious patina issues developing on the hood -- i would love to mod it to mimic some of the trucks shown already (the HotRod City truck is boss)

Well I'll be darn. It is true about old Fords being held together with bailing wire afterall. I believe that's a roll of bailing wire next to the seat riser. Is it not?

Re: Patina, shop logo'd, rusty trucks?

I was doing some googling on "patina" last night and it seems you can use a metallic paint and then use an acid to chemically oxidize (rust) that. Anyone heard of this or done it? It would allow you to do all the body work and the rust would only be in the metallic paint and not in the actual sheetmetal.

Anyone know any details on the Hot Rod City truck? I love the wheel size and stance. Just knowing the wheel size would make me happy .

Alvin, are you keeping that thing on a leash or what? That last pic looks like you don't want it straying to far from home.
I don't blame you either, Ethel is one of my favorites on here.

Yeah, it's a leash of sorts. It gets a little rowdy from time to time .

I can't wait for the day I can finally take that thing off!

And thanks, I'm really glad you like it. I'm going to try to channel that into some motivation to get 'er done.. okay?

I agree! I love that truck! Something about that baby blue and white just looks awesome to me. My '69 beater truck came that color and I have been sure thinking about putting it back. I have also toyed around with leaving it as is with a shop logo. I'm just not sure yet!

Is that the big block truck that was out of North Carolina? The one that was for sale awhile ago? I love that truck.
