Last time I talked to him he'd become a realtor and was kicking back.
I took a load to Foils today. Buy prices were: Scrap steel 5 cents a pound. Aluminum 30 cents a pound. FYI
30 cents for AL? WTF?
Yeah almost not worth saving at that price. I remember it was around 80 cents last time I went.
Blah. If they're out to piss some people off, outlaw big stupid rims.
Well they better pass that... Of course at least their headlights can't blind me, since they are pointed at the sky.
I'm split on it. Yes it is dumb as shit and very pointless. But... I'm all about freedom to do what I wish to a vehicle and that's the beautiful thing about SC. There's other things that the police officers could be distracted by other than a white guy in a squat truck. I don't believe one bit that the stance of a squat truck could hinder vision so bad that it could cause an accident. I've never seen a squat truck in an accident. I think it's a really bullshit half-assed targeting from the racist minority. I'm also 96% sure it won't pass, but I'll keep an eye on it.
I'm not sure what the demographic's of squatted truck owner's or squatted truck haters are in SC, but in NC they're both typically white
....or my house, or my property, or my wife, or the goat with that phat ass I bought in a weak moment
Mind your own damn business. I don't need your annual approval to operate my vehicles. And I don't need your roads. I'll keep ALL my money thank you very much, and we can all just keep to ourselves
[steps off soap box while ammo belts clang]
Wait, is this just an exaggeration or did you join the belt fed club? Been meaning to fire off a few hundred continuous rounds of .308 just to piss off the neighbors (well, gotta reload every 200). But someone else with one and I could have every sheriff in the county show up.
I hate writing annual reviews. If you work for me you’ll already know how you’re doing throughout the year.
This is the nicest fall season we've had in years.
Try living and working on vehicles up this way where the roads stay white 4 months a year. Lowering a spare tire on a truck takes on average 2 hours. Changing brake pads on a vehicle from this area takes on average 3 hours.
Can you tell I hate salt with a passion?
Yeah no thanks. I hate rust.
If they can legislate lowering one end of a truck ...... it won't be long before they can legislate lifting both ends .......
Just sayin' .....
(but in some places I guess they already do )
(And in those same places, they already do legislate lifting only one end)
I should take pics of the roads up here and post them. They do stay white throughout the entire winter.
Speaking of roads...80 in a 55, and I still get passed like I'm sitting on blocks. WTF? Yesterday I was doing 90 through the same zone, just barely keeping with the flow. I mean, damn.
White with salt, yeah. I used to live up north.. 14 years ago. It's wild how much the small town & the county I live in has changed in that time.
This is going to be my battle IF I ever get to the point with my Jeep of having it streetable again...Up in the fawked up part of the country, they go by bumper height, headlight height from the pavement, tire coverage/stickout, and some measurement of rear tire overhang where a tangent line from the rear tire contact patch from the pavement out to the bumper can't be greater than a certain angle without using mudflaps/rock guards...
Yep, the salt the hell out of the roads, that's what I was talking about. I had an '06 Ram I bought new in NC, and when I moved up here in '08, it wasn't but just a couple years until I started seeing some bubbling around the inner door pinch seams at the bottoms.
So, walking out the door tonight to make a beer run, my girlfriend yells "dont forget a jacket".
By no means is it frigid, but it is 30 degrees and the wind chill is probably close to 15, so of course I would wear a jacket.
In my most sarcastic, condescending voice, and of course how any man who has just been spoken to like a child would reply " honey, I am only half retarded you know".
Without a pause, her reply is "yep, but I never know what half I am speaking to"
I take a deep breath, spend 5 seconds trying to come up with a witty remark to prove her wrong.
I shake my head in agreement, grab my jacket as told and walk out the door..........
Technically in NC you are allowed to raise the bumpers 6" over original but I don't think it's very much enforced.
