I saw a jeep truck last night at the gas station. Looked like someone combined an CJ and made it into a truck, body and bed were one piece. Then dressed it up to look like a newer jeep with the graphics and such.

At first I thought it was a new 2 door jeep from the stickers, but when he pulled out I could tell it was older from the lack of curves of the body panels, and how thin the door was.

No phone, so no pictures.

I noticed that too. There was a retro “herbie” vw there also, and 3 ford pinto’s. you never see them anymore. one was a wagon with the porthole back windows and a 302/4speed .

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
I saw that… at least he had fun.

I think he is joking...

I also think the guy could have found better tires for snickers too, that was a kind of substandard display aside from turning his bed inside out.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Burnout was disappointing. But his finale was pretty great.
