We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

Euro rally car of some sort. I don't really recognize it behind the baseball field lights on the hood.

What the fuck do I know, my last four cars suffered the rally treatment. Mudflaps and lights at a minimum. Skidplates on everything but the cherokee. And after about 150,000 miles, stickers for structural support.









Light pods for the subaru are coming. Driving lights in the fog light location kind of suck.

Do you really think that car has seen anything worse than sand thrown down on the road in the winter?

Fucker is too shiny to be used as the rally car its dressed up to be.

Despite my affinity for mud and paint jobs rapidly going/gone to shit, it is possible to wash a rally car. I've even heard of this substance called wax that people apply to protect the finish of their automobiles.

I'd wager, those cars have a vinyl wrap instead of being painted. It's very popular in Europe. The vinyl crap can be easily removed leaving the original paint, unlike paint.
