Basic Transportation

The straw has finally broken the camel's back. I am parking the freakin Durango and driving this little beater until the technology changes away from fossil fuels.
Yeah, I know, it ain't much to look at, but the oxidation actually comes off pretty easy with a little elbow grease and some cutting compound. Everything seems to function and it has a new head gasket.
Heck, I may even let Groovy stencil some flowers or grape vines on it just for shits and giggles. Maybe I could talk XBunny into splashing a little glitter onto it.

It should also be good for some BLOG material.

I showed my son a magic trick when I brought it home. How to turn a $1,800 pickup into a $6,800 pickup in the blink of an eye. Yep, I stuck my bike in the back.

Now you are probably thinking I have gone mad (that boat sailed a long time ago), but with the Durango being reclassified as a "pleasure" vehicle, this little beater only has a net cost of $5.00 a month for insurance. I'll save that in one race trip.

Yeah, let's paint it! I burnt no fossil fuel today; I rode my bike all the way to work - only 20 miles, but headwind on Dublin Cnyn and uphill finish to campus made for a decent ride.

I thought that you were joking until I saw it parked in front of your house. It's a cool little truck!
