    After my first few cars ('63 Dodge Dart slant six, '71 full sized 4-door Ford Custom, and '63 Chevy Biscayne 3-speed column 6-popper), I got a brand new truck when I was 20 years old. It was a 1977 F100, totally stripped. Not even a radio. No power steering, no power assist on the brakes, 3-speed column shift. No AC. A torque monster 300 cid inline six (4.9L for you youngsters out there). My friend who was an auto body repair man did the paint job.

    Those were the days when pickup trucks were not for sissies and the only people who had them were sportsmen, contractors, and rednecks. Few people in suburbia had them so when you got a pickup truck, suddenly you had a lot of friends and they all seemed to have something big they needed to have moved.



    Here is a post where I show a couple shots of the interior.

    Quite the opposite. I hope everyone reads the sewer. Of course, the juiciest stuff exists on shadow forums, but only the true TC illuminati can read that.

    And no, Klassik, we're not the same guy and while he may have received "a billion blows to the head or something" I haven't.

    And yes, Cap, the goat dude is actually avoiding you *nods head -

    I'm not certain how he feels about being referred to as the "goat dude" - you'll have to ask him. I'm wondering if he would mind me calling him either "Double Goats" or "Goat Squared" as that "goatygoatygoatgoat" is almost as difficult to write as your username.

    What the.... I was busy taking care of... general goat business.. when I saw that there were two more pages on this thread. I was about to say I have no idea what the f--k a "vanilla ice" was or indeed what an "ice, ice baby" was, when I saw that someone was.. "impugning"... yes, that's a word, according to Dictionary.com... my "cahootness" - no, that's not a word, according to Dictionary.com.. as a free-loving, grass-grazing, non-cubed, all-Canadian goat - independent from international evil influence, as comes from cowboys - whether cosmic or not.

    Well... what were we talking about not? Oh yes.. I don't like vanilla. I prefer chocolate.

    It's open season on bogans and hoons and no one told me?

    Get your hunting license (you'll need to apply for two - one for bogans and one for hoons) in Victoria because it makes no restrictions on the hunting of pest or feral animals on private land or in state forests, as long as the hunter has permission from the landowner. You have my permission. Carry on.

    Complimentary well-intentioned advice to my friends here - don't chase after someone who has a gun when you yourself don't actually have one - it rarely if ever works out very well.

    By the way, I'm not a "hoon". I too am a "car enthusiast". So is Eddie.

    I've never committed a "hoon offense". Neither has Eddie.


    I don't consider "burnouts" to be a "hoon offense". Neither does Eddie.


    If you don't do "burnouts" you'll never really feel all that confident that your tyres are working. Just ask Eddie.


    If you don't have confidence in your tyres your tyres won't have confidence in you. Just ask Eddie.

    That's me at the 1:17 mark. It was my car. Not yours. My tyres could sense that I really didn't have a lot of confidence in them that day and they paid me back for my faithlessness by driving me off the road, through the railings, and into a rather large and deep body of water.

    Even though they're "feral" like 'roos you can't shoot them. So don't. Even when it's really tempting.

    I'm starting a new invite-only group - "TC Bogan Hunters" - Danish laws are quite a bit more liberal than those in Oz. We're also going to play pretty fast and loose on just who we consider to be "bogans" so you might want to be careful the next time you decide to use this under a post in an invite-only group in which my name appears.

    I was the bloke who smashed his car into his mate's mum's shop. I did indeed leave the scene in a hurry but I did warn the bloke not to be a hero, mate. I wasn't caught because I was driving a 1973 Ford Falcon XB GT V8 Interceptor and this bogan was driving a Hillman Hunter Safari Wagon! Good luck trying to catch me driving that POS, mate!

    And no I wouldn't like to live next door to Daniel... I told that bloody bogan ba$tard not to be a hero, mate, but he didn't listen. Bloody bogan ba$tards never do...
