Francine the Crap Truck
During the first spring break after high school, the gang here at Randomland got together and spent $110 on an old, beat up 2wd Toyota pickup truck. Over the course of several years, we cleaned it, broke it, fixed it, and broke it again. It's final resting place seems to be at the far end of the field at Nick's house; may she rest in peace.
Through the many ages of the Randomnets (2002-present), we have provided you with giant, uselessly long stories of Francine. Check out the stories below!
I have added a few Francine pictures to the image gallery. I will be digging up more in the days to come, but it's a start. View them here.
YouTube Videos (new 10-06-09)
Now you can view videos of Francine on YouTube! Access the videos here; more to come soon!
First of all, please forgive the current formatting of these stories. We moved the site off of GoDaddy's servers a few months ago (YAY!!) and the image gallery was lost. Some of the images have been restored, here, but the in-story links are still broken. I'll work on getting them back up soon (aka some time 2009).
Part 1 — The Story Begins
Here is where the epic tale of Francine the Crap Truck start. This tale is one of miscommunication, triumph, and acquisition. And perhaps unsurpisingly, it is not one involving keys.
Part 2 — Meet the Parents
After buying the vehicle, we decided our parents should all have the privilege of being graced by her beauty. They were in awe!
Part 3 — Let's Go Camping!
The first thing everybody does when they get a new car is to seehow it will fair on the backroads. We chose logging roads. It was mildly disastrous and a ton of fun.
Part 4 — Damage Assessment
The truck was a globulous mess of house paint, carpet, insulation, and plywood. Oh yes, and plants starting to grow in the bed.
Part 5 — Beautifying and Bashing Francine Some spray paint and fresh oil could never hurt a crap truck, right? A few spins in the cow-field, however, are not so benign.
Part 6 — More Cleaning, Beating, and Bashing
This may or may not have been the last section written about Francine. Read about us swapping out the fuel pump and getting her stuck in the mud!
