I cannot live off of someone else's wife, so I need to support myself.

When I see off-road vehicles with reduced headroom I always think, "How's that working out for you?"

Whenever I see off road vehicles, I always wonder if they've ever been farther off road than a parking lot.

We drove our fuel trucks around a dirt track at Fort Leonard Wood.

We were not just wearing seatbelts, but five-point harnesses, and when we hit one bump, both of us hit our helmets on the ceiling.

Is that normal for offroading?

Five-point harnesses are. Watch the stewards at Bonneville cinch down the drivers.

Fat Charlie — It's parked on dirt.

I'm not big on chopped tops, I'd hardly noticed it. How about the stock mirror converted to a peep mirror next to the suicided doorhandle next to an aoogah horn? hmm?

Front suspension and rocker covered with perf metal or chain mail? Is that a real patina or a faux patina?

Only if you continue to choose to be.

I suspect the choice falls to the hypothetical someone else's wife.

The econobox isn't dead, it's only resting.

freebeard- It's parallel parked at the curb. In front of a white picket fence, no less!

I would accept the winnings from the lotto, but it wouldn't be satisfying. I prefer my first million come through providing something of value to others and striving towards a goal.
