Note: Due to a technical issue, PT Garages are presently view-only, meaning existing garages cannot be edited, and new garages cannot be created for the time being. We appreciate the irony that a website dedicated to old cars is having trouble due to a piece of software from 2012. In our defense, software rusts much faster than metal.

While we work on fixing and improving the system, we invite you to look through the nearly 400 garages that are already on the site (which can be searched using the "Search PT Garages" link above), and to check out the Project Updates and Multimedia & Photography forums for more great builds.

    Found this old dump truck in SE Colorado about ten years ago. It had a multifuel Continental turbo diesel in it from the US Military. I had the drivetrain and axles pulled out and scrapped. Now it's ready to be a PT Rat/Hot Rod. Bought this for my boy who is about to turn 15 and hes ready to get going on the project. Looking to leave the exterior as it is, build a chassis, bag it and put a Duramax or Cummins in it. Will be a fun project for the boy.
