I love jalopnik for this kind of stuff.......


While Ford and Chrysler ponied up to put their raw steel away from the rain, International Harvester decided to save a few bucks by letting their stock sit on the outside. As a result the material would sometimes get rusty before it even became part of the truck.

“Of course [International] would clean the exterior side down so they could paint the panels,” Allen said. “But sometimes steel parts would ship with patina, and go onto the truck that way. That’s what I mean by saying some Scouts were ‘born rusty!’”
