My father used to say that there's no such thing as a weed, just unloved flowers.

I voted for #4 not because it's ugly, there's no such thing as a ugly Cub, just unloved Cubs.

Seeing these pictures really makes me appreciate some of the work I've seen on the forum. To take some of these abused machines and turn'em into "prom queens" takes dedication. The '74 I bought this past summer was bent and rusted to say the least. Carb was warped and out of adjustment. It has taken me 6 months just to get it running good and look some what presentable.

New name will probably be "Bondo".

I think #7 is the winner. It looks like she's been rode hard and put away wet a few times, but a good 'ole horse, just the same. Thanks for the pictures. (Too bad about that burn victim.) :(

Congratulations (I guess) to George Willer and Scruffy, our winner in the first "Ugly Cub" contest!

Pictures can also be viewed here:

Now send me your pictures for the next "running/working" ugly Cub contest. (George's Scruffy is a running/working Cub!)

If you want a "running, but UGLY" Cub contest, send me a recent photo of your Cub.

The Rules:

2. AS IS, not a BEFORE picture.
3. Must be a running, working Cub.
4. Must be submitted to me before 1/15/04
5. Must be your Cub. (Do not submit some elses Cub picture.)
6. Previous candidates above are eligible, with the exception of the winner.
7. Cub and Lo-Boys are eligible.

Send them to (I've only received two so far...)
