All new trucks are perfect in the same way, but every scratch, dent and strip of peeling paint got their in its own particular fashion.

We want yours.

To commemorate "Ugly Truck Day" on Wednesday, we're asking owners of ugly trucks to email their pictures to djohnson@oaoa.com or post on our Facebook wall for our "Ugly Trucks" slideshow on oaoa.com and a Facebook gallery of the same. Fans of our page can "Like" the ugliest truck y'all can find.

Thanks for submitting your pictures.

(And if it's your truck, be sure include how the pickup got its fender knocked off, when you decided to slap on that hot pink coat of paint, or just why you decided to lift your Bronco six feet off the ground.)
