When I first got mine in 2004 we attended a renascence fair. The park attendant said “ park that Behemoth over there!” Ever since them it’s been called “the Behemoth”.

Those plants on the passenger side driveway look a little suspicious!

How do you think I paid for the truck? :pimp:

That whole driveway was supposed to get redone this year. But someone spent the budget on a T-Bird and an F250. I don't have to live there and new concrete driveways are boring anyway. :buck:

Looks good, Al! Since it's big and gray, I think the name is obvious - it's the USS Bundy (BB250). Just change the mirror running lights so that one side is red and the other side is green. Plus, according to the international rules of the sea, warships always have the right of way.

Forget the driveway, it needs a trip to Bill Pratt's Truck Shop for some accessorizing!

Yup, that guy, the hooligan.

Somewhere out there is a tree, tirelessly producing oxygen so you can breathe. I think you owe it an apology.
