drive ins are the best. we had one in valparaiso indiana but its only open from like june till august and they only have one screen. where we go here, there are 4. always have current movies, and most of the time they will release them there too. i must have 30 ticket stubs from that drive in in my center console. lol. one thing alot of people like to do is bring an old couch take off the feet and set it on the top of the bed of they're truck backed up the hill. if i had a truck you bet your *** id be one of em lol.

Finally, finished undercoating my truck and undercoating half of the interior too. Also put in a new oil pressure sending unit and painted the window trim and under the hood.

Well, today'* plan is to get the valve covers off of the car and paint them along with replacing coolant elbows and valve cover gaskets...hopefully this will take care of the leaks from the top of the motor.

those are nice and much more compact than the ones i wanted for my buick, are you putting them in that open area below your grill in the bumper?


tried to get the spare tire out from under my truck but couldnt get the tool to work in there, also its got some lovely michigan lock tite. that is seriously the dumbest thing truck manufacturers can do is put the tire under the truck like that.

I take mine out however possible and just put em in the bed..

And yeah those lights are bomb i had a set on my quad and they were awesome..Ive also got a set on the backhoe and they work great

also as luck would have it i got my springs and tail lights then tuned around only to see about 60 yards away a 80 camaro sitting on top of a 92 gran prix..Car looked like it had been sitting in a feild for a looooong time..Had a buick v8 in it kind of odd..Interior was carp and missing wich sucks cause i coulda used the black steering wheel and pull handles..Hard top car so i couldnt get a t top handle but what was important was this....

I got the bumper cover and the inner fibergalss support for 30 bucks..I love having friends that own junkyards lol i cannot beleive he had one..
