You have to smile if you are out playing. Damage is part of the thrill.

I think Tyler was a little upset inside. Considering the body was minty!

The body looks like a used hooker on that side after I put paint on it. Apparently the spray bomb from walmart wasn't a perfect Color match. Who woulda thought. No broken windows though. Just some aerodynamic curves.

Not really. I'm kind of enjoying it not being broken and being able to drive it around everyday. I put some heat insulation from lowes in the back as sound deadener. Works pretty good and cant beat the price. I'm saving up for a header and am planning to rebuild the engine in the summer. Also school takes up a lot of time, but I did find out i'm going to NC State next year for engineering. Since it isn,t really wheeling season yet I've been biking more trying to get back into shape. Might hit up Uwharrie biking this weekend if anyone else is interested.

Well a little update. I bought an addicted off-road front bumper. Same one Casey(4running) has. Should be here soon. Headgasket's pretty much gone, hoping to make it last until the show then i'll rebuild the motor. And finally my brother's hopefully gettting an old 4runner so maybe i'll get to drive it.

Well the tech on that is, be happy if you have a garage; grill covers and carboard work excellent to keep the rain and pollen off, its really hard to push an engine stand up a hill. And unfortunately I sold the '81 to buy this one. I sold it to a guy in Indian Trail, but last i've heard I think he sold it.

Got the truck back running. Went to Uwharrie today with some 4runner friends. Was happy with the results. Someone or something cut one of my valve stems, so I rode all day with a flat tire and drove home with it too.
