Why doesnt he just put it in neutral and set the parking brake? Or does that not work either? *Facepalm

Reminds me of an Audi S4 a few years ago that some kids did up in painter's tape and drove cross country. Although I think the Audi was a bit more tastefully done, if you can tastefully tape up your car. At least you can make notes from the trip on the car and not worry about messing up the paint!

Little Jonie herd that wrapping your car was dope, but skipped the vinyl, and settled for the less expensive and readily available Blue painters tape!

You've never been wheeling have you. L/R for the spotter is not L/R for the driver, so it makes it easier on both for the spotter to say driver or passenger. I had a guy try to do the L/R deal with me once and it was beyond confusing. I told him to use D/P or I was just going to do the obstacle without a spotter.
that makes more sense. Thanks.

Check out all this horsepower!


This thing said it was a limited edition


You probably can't see, but de's doing this wrong because his muffler looks like he got it from autozone. It's just kinda under there, no tilt, no angle. just under there. looked good though
