This was pretty cool...
This morning, I am sitting at the end of my driveway waiting on my daughter's bus to come. Off of the side road next to my property, a guy in a 90s Z71 comes out and drives by. Now, in the 2 years I have been sitting in my vehicle waiting on the bus when this guy comes out (I have seen him nearly every day for the last 2 years) He never gives me a second look. Today, I saw him craning his neck to have a look at my truck. The encounter ended up in a mutual standard 2 fingers raised off the steering wheel wave to each other.
There are a trillion of these trucks out there. I can't go to the store without seeing at least 5 of them passing me in the other direction. They blend in like trees in a forest. The fact that this guy made a special effort to have a look at mine felt pretty good... Sort of like when a guy turns to have a peek at my wife. Glad others think my truck looks good too! My wife calls that "Man Flirting". LOL!"It went together didn't it? Well then there has to be a way to take it apart!" - Me.

When i see a lifted tahoe or surburban with mud tires i think to myself if that person lifted it for looks or because he had to lift it to get where he was wanting to go.I had to lift my bus cause when i went hunting with my daddy inlaw we kept getting stuck in his ford.I like the looks of the 90s chevy trucks and suv thay just have some clean lines and the aftermarket has anything you can think of.1998 SURBURBAN LT FULLYLOADED 6 INCH LIFT AND 35 INCH MUDDERS-1985 M-1028 MILITARY TRUCK UNDER 38 K MILES NO RUST OR DENTS RUNS LIKE NEW.2004 XL-1200R 1 OF 7 MADE BY HARLEY WITH 100 HP-1977 XL-1000 NAMED PAW PAW..We own only 4x4s dont know why just turned out that way the other 2 aint chevy so i wont list.1987 MONTE CARLO SS 555 CI BIGBLOCK 675 HP 700 QT BUILT BY DOUG HERBERT IN NC.

Hehe...that is a moment of pride. When I had my 09 Sierra I got a lot of complements when going through drive-thrus and such. I reminded myself today that my truck isn't at that same point because I lack random comments. When I see someone w/ a nice chevy rig I surely give a thumbs up or casual wave. Way to go on achieving acknowledgement from a person you'd least expect it from!

DING DING DING. Exact same (excpet its rabbit hunting around here). Its mostly kids (16-20) who are in high school too around here but they do it with daddy or mommy's money. They had some kids party with a bonfire in the field across from my house, and it started raining, they got stuck in the field and came knock on my door at 3AM. Didn't help them (kinda a jackass move I know but I did let them stay under the carport for their friends to come pick them up). They had the bright idea to leave their trucks there until it dried up enough. Thank God my buddy Boo owns a towing company, he came and towed em all out and took them to his yard the next day while they were sleeping off their hangovers. Thats what you get for getting stuck in MY field.
If at first you don't succeed, chances are, you are using too small of a cheater bar
