Default Why I love being a redneck...

I can change vehicles with my mood. Despite my neon-drivingness, every so often, it gets too little, wussy, and feminine even for me. Yesterday, I was driving this:

Little, quiet, cute, and gas efficient (25-31 mpg).

Today, I'm driving this:

Ginormous, loud, manly, and inefficient (5-8 mpg ).

Nice! Your Bonn must get pretty good gas mileage then! My Brougham has problems...and is only getting about 13.5 mpg because of 'em.

It'* about 20 between city and hwy and I do a lot more city. The burb is about 20 on the hwy @ 55 mph so trips are ok in it.

Indeed. Please note that the antenna whips go up and out of the picture...they're 6' It also has a plow frame on the front for when winter comes.

Bill, Silverado seems to be a popular choice! We've got two. Your Bonn gets excellent mileage.

I heard Boosty cut the sleeves off his T-shirt and has been scouring boneyards looking for one of them cool yellow lights to mount on his Bonnie. Can anyone verify this?

I wish my 1500HD got 18-20 mpg on the highway.

Not quite ... wheres the Easy Rider Rifle Rack. And every redneck truck has a few bumper stickers on the back window occluding the view of just what rifles your carrying. The top three are I'd rather be Fishing, I'd rather be Hunting, and Quit honking ...I'm reloading. Dont forget Powered by Smith and Wesson and the ever present Confederate Flag
