Thats a great truck. I imagine he’s got a little bit of coin, so I think its cool that he still hangs on to that truck. I also have a few 3 gun friends who have competed with/against him and they all say he is a really nice guy, an absolute gentleman.
I don’t know nearly enough about finances to even consider playing the market myself. I’d be living in a box under a bridge if I did.
Grab apartment maps of any places you frequent often. They help quite a bit for the first few months before you have an encyclopedic knowledge of every building
Used to watch this show all the time in it’s glory days, when Discovery was still worth watching....
This this this! Most of the deaths I kind of shrug, but GRANT!? I wasn’t even a huge fan of the show (mostly watched when finding visuals to debunk myths people didn’t want to read articles for), but Grant reminded me of guys I went to high school with.

I think the build quality in my Prizm was better than the ‘03-’08 models. Actually, it was better than the ‘98-’02 ones too. I remember when we got the new ‘03 Corolla at Hertz and I sat in one and was really underwhelmed.

The problem is for some folks I think what they are thinking is they don’t want to see comforting reminders of the past change. Unfortunately, for those who are isolated and tone deaf, they project the opposite of comfort to minorities, especially black folks. Read more
You mean the clamshell tailgate from the Custom Cruiser, right?
Not nearly as fatty, but not exactly healthy, either...
Besides the obvious safety issues, it's a Nissan old enough to be imported but with none of the cool factor. You're also late to Teal Tuesday. Not for nearly 2 grand. Maybe for half that, since the dealer probably have $300 for it on a trade in and didn't bother to give it a proper clean. Maybe if you negotiated a… Read more
“It’s got a cop motor, 2.0 GTI block. Cop tires, cop shocks, cop brakes” - Jakob Elwood
Thank you guys so much for doing something as patently ridiculous as actually buying this thing, and sharing your experience with us. This is exactly the sort of silly escapist fun we all need right now. Keep em coming!
