There'* a pic around here somewhere of my feeble attempt.

IIRC, it was driverjohn who zipped off to the gas station to get enough fuel for me to make a few more runs. Boosty was in tears from missing the side-by-sides while we waited for fuel.

It was only a matter of time before the stupid criminals come out to steal gas with the way prices have been.
