    Default A New Perspective!

    The other day I met my wife after work, since she had some errands to run. Instead of me driving the whole way home then going back out we just met up and grabbed a bite to eat. She mentioned that my truck looked really nice as I pulled into the parking lot, I replied "thanks, I never get to see it moving", so that started it, since we had both vehicles with us, I told her to drive the truck and I followed in her car. And I must say, My truck looks awesome!! ( I know, it's mine, of course I'm going to say that!) but the point is, when you see your vehicle going down the road it looks a lot different than just sitting in the driveway! Seeing the sun glint of the rims while they are turning is pretty cool, I followed her through town and had her romp on the throttle. I gotta tell you the Gibson sounds really good at WOT! Then we headed down the interstate and it sounds pretty good cruising too, the rims look cool at high rpm's and the calipers really show up well, I highly recommend seeing your ride in motion, it's pretty cool! Don't mean to brag, but I'm just proud of my rig, and I just thought I 'd share!

    I did that about 15 years ago with my GMC, let my dad drive it down to get a radiator repair and I was like, that's an awesome truck.

    Glad you had a good "out of truck experience".

    I've never done that before. Gonna have to try it after I get done painting the beast, probably wouldnt be very impressive with it being to different colors of primer right now. By the way Adam, if that truck was mine, I'd brag too.
