02:32 pm - on being able to roll like that...
Did you ever have a dream? Everybody has a dream. My dream involves oversized wheels, shiny chrome running boards, an 18-inch lift kit, dangerous bass, a silicon enhanced Barbie on the hood and mad hydralics in the back.

Picture me rollin'!

So I got the newest issue of Sport Truck Magazine this weekend. It was more or less the same as every issue. Reviews of some trucks. Some easy do-it-yourself upgrades. Some sound system stuff. Tire reviews. I think there might have been a pciture of some big boobed woman in a bikini (but who really pays attention to that stuff?). But this issue there was something special. The Sport Truch Low-Buck Challenge! I was intrigued. Go down in Sport Truck history by customizing your truck. The catch? The base rig has to be '98 or older. It has to book for less than $10,000. And you can only spend $5500 total on the upgrades. Winner gets featured in the magazine and a bunch of other stuff.

OHMIGODOHMIGODOHMIGODOHMIGODOHMIGODOHMIGODOHMIGOD!!!!

So let's see, the Vagabond is '97! I bought it for $7500! Dude! I can do this. The only thing I don't have is $5500 (and bikini clad babes to stand in front and model it, but that can come later). So here we go. Who wants to help me win a national trucking contest? All you have to do is put money in this convenient little virtual amazon tip jar I have included and then make some suggestions as to what I should do in the comments. What could be easier than that? So here we go, I'm willing to enter my truck on behalf of the internet. Who's with me?

Also, ummm... who wants to wear a bikni and stand in front of the truck? Model must be able to smile and point.

Well, I have no money but being the ever supporting mama that I am, I am willing to sacrifice all pride and don my polka dot bikini for you. Ahhhhh, a Mother's Love.

ummm... gee thanx... but really... and don't take this the wrong way, my mother was not exactly what I had in mind....

Have you ever done any of this type of work before? I'm curious because I've pondered what I'll do with my Firebird at some point in the future, but personally have no experience in modifying a vehicle.

And you can only spend $5500 total on the upgrades.

Sounds like any metal-work you could do yourself might be "free" with respect to the budget... On second thought shaping steel is hard to do right, I've been watching Monster Garage and American Choppers on Discovery Channel too much of late.

No not really, I mean I've changed stereos and added a bell and a whistle here and there, but nothing on this scale. And seeing as how no one is scurrying to dump money in my tip jar, its looking like Ik won't be anytime soon, either.

Yeah, they have pretty exact rules about what counts. They have a panel of experts which assess fair value. If its stuff you can reasonably do yourself then they'll believe you got free labor. But they explicitly state "don't try to convince us that you did 300 hours worth of engine work for $300."

The real way to do this would be to go pick up some rusted out '65 Chevy truck from a junkyard $100 and completely rebuild it. Problem is the end product has to be functional, and they'd probably charge your basic non custom restoration towards your budget.

Bikini Babe Birthday Bash

I think you've got a theme for your birthday party. Bikini babes will line up to have thier picture taken on the truck. People vote for their favorite bikini babe. Girls vote for guys. Guys vote for girls...

Re: Bikini Babe Birthday Bash

what if I want to vote for the boys... ummm... never mind...

Bikini babes will line up to have thier picture taken on the truck

Umm, does this mean you're lining up? I'm looking out my window and I am seeing my truck, but no line.

Re: Bikini Babe Birthday Bash

you've got to make the mods to the truck first. i mean, bikini babes don't just line up for any truck. you see...

Re: Bikini Babe Birthday Bash

see, that's the rub... I can't afford to do the mods until you donate $5500 to the Vagabond Fund... *sigh*

Bagsies the bikini job!!!!!

hmmm... I guess there is a line forming. Only problem is that I don't think I can quite drive the Vagabond across the Atlantic, so you'd have to come here to pose. You want to do that, then sure, you're in!

I may do!

hey, i offered for the bikini job last summer. in fact, i suggested you take one picture of me in a black bikini, one in a white, and then photoshop me to be twins. but no, that's not good enough for you. you want babes fighting to be your bikini models. fine, see if i offer again.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: May 5th, 2003 - 10:55 pm (Link)
ladies, ladies... there is plenty of me truck to go around. No fighting is necessary... But if you must, at least wait til we can lay down some mud or jello or something.

Hey, I always thought the twin Jenn's was a good idea. You never came over with the bikinis though. Hmmm...I have a really good camera now though. And a better looking truck... this is sounding like a better idea all the time... maybe I don't need to actually do any customizing to the truck at all, I could just send them a picture of the stock truck with half naked women surrounding it... how many different colored bikinis do you have? You could be sextuplets!
