Blue dog used to post some videos of the desert trucks running. Watching the front suspensions work was amazing. :-\ :-\ my back hurt just watching.

I miss Blue dog.  Other than getting a little crazy when he drank too much he was a pretty cool guy. Plus he sent me a bottle of Bourbon disguised as car parts in the mail!

I miss Blue Dog as well and a lot of other folks.
That scalloped box end is one of the few BB features that doesn't make Elroy puke

Maybe we need to put an alcohol interlock on peoples keyboards to keep them from posting when they are drunk lolx

I'd pass the blow test.  It'll be a year on the 27th that I quit drinking.  Doesn't mean I won't still post some stupid shit though.

Screw the buggy... this is what you really need.
There is a very fine line between a hobby and a mental illness.

Does the need justify the want ? Or does the want suffice?

It likely involves alcohol or paint fumes.
