Man i've heard some horror stories about people pulling onto those scales with their personal trucks.. getting picked over with a fine tooth comb and ending up having to have their trucks trailored away with a pocket full of fines.

I only use my '46 2 ton around the yard, since untill I get a new box on the back she's really not cool to be driving around on public roads.. but even once I get the bed put on, i'll probably limit her "public" use to those times when what I need to haul back from the lumber yard or auction just won't fit in the 1/2 ton.


an idea is only stupid if you think about it rationally.

Using it local, you know where the scales are ,take an alternate route. You've got better things to do than discuss your truck and whats legal with folks who job it is to generate revenue for the state

Is that full coverage? Or just liability?
On some old dumpscale receipts the truck shows as just under 8,000 lbs. Mine is registered at just over 8,000 lbs. It looks like if I have that changed the yearly will go down from $359 to just over $300.-
I did find some info on their website about trying to get it declared a historical vehicle. But short of that there is not much I can do to save money. Another thing that worries me a little is that I registered it to only operate at 10,001 lbs gross. If I want to register it for 10,001 to 15,000 it will be an additional $435 per year. If I don't and I get stopped heavy they could fine me up to $2,000.- It says they can send me to a scale if it is within two miles or they can use portable scales.
Geez.

FYI, J.C. Taylor will only insure it if it is completely restored. They rejected my 4100 today cause "the paint was faded". BTW I'm still looking for insurance myself. I guess I'm just a cheap SOB cause I refuse to pay regular rates for a vehicle I drive less than 500 miles a year. Been looking almost 4 months now! :mad:

Stuart, I looked at their website a while back and didn't think my truck would qualify. I'll check again, Thanks

Martin,

Look in the Gallery at my truck...If that thing will qualify then yours certainly should. I of course don't understand the "black magic" of insurance underwriting, but they sure seem comparable (the two trucks).

Stuart.
