Caro trabiccolone mio bello!

Hi everyone!
I need to translate this expression in English "Caro trabiccolone mio bello!" It is the beginning of a letter. A friend calls a friend of his in this affectionate and funny manner. In Italian a "trabiccolo" is an old thing, a sort of jalopy. How could I translate this in English? "My dear old fellow" doesn't quite convey the same meaning of "trabiccolone".
Thanks for any advice!
