    Call me crazy but I'm thinkin' about running my ole girl in this.

    If I wreck out I'm gonna be PO'd.

    I think she'll need a tune up, fluid change and maybe a good going over at the shop first.

    GMTC member input required...:great:

    sounds like fun to me. i looked at the bullrun site for the US and was floored. it cost like 20g's for the entry. little to much for me right now. I need to pay my truck off first and wife wants a house. lol

    lol yeah you Darcy and I crammed into the front seat, and adidasboy in the bed of the truck for 5000km.
    I don't know how you could handle the bed of the truck for that long.

    I'll pass thanks.

    Sounds like fun, but then you have to obey the rules of the road. which kinda stinks.
    wait....any rules that your vehicle has to stay on the road? :lol:

    Definitely check the u-joints. all that constant driving and those suckas can heat up good and fail if they are not lubed good. That will put a stop to your run in a jiffy.

    I somehow I don't think the 3 of us would last long packed in like sardines. LOL
    Adidasboy would be launched out of the box on the first leg, so thats not safe either.

    I need a 4x4 for offroad...but good call.

    Actually thats not a bad idea. I checked last summer but I should at least lube u-joints. Another fine point.

    I think they kind of meant to put that in quotes... Kind of like a "Oh, hey, remember, while doing this run you have to 'obey the rules of the road' so... you know.."

    It's kind of like Monty Python

    "OOhhh obey the rules of the road... say no more.. say no more.. *wink* *wink*.. *nudge* *nudge*.. rules of the road, right? *nudge* *nudge*.. say no more.."
