So, I joined and posted an introduction the other day, but it seems that something transpired last night and the electrical gods deemed it fit to wipe me out of the system. Probably some glitch in the Matrix, Neo ate the other pill and the lady in the red dress actually gender identifies as a dude named Steve. No clue. Anyway, I'll rebuild this post, because it's fun, right? Also, stop me if you have read this before.. I stumbled upon this forum by accident. I saw a couple posts that looked like I could get some inspiration from here for my vehicle(s) so I decided to join. Now it's my time to tell a story. I used to drive a 2007 Colorado Xtreme. It was splendid. It was most fantastic. It was something I was proud of. I would cruise around getting thumbsups from grown adults and high-fives from babies. Everyone loved it. Well, I loved it. I thought it was awesome, and that's about the only thing that really mattered. So then comes the twist in this story that happens all the time. You've heard it before, and you are about to read about it again, if you keep reading that is. My wife wound up pregnant with two little Cheerio thieves, bringing the total number of crayon gobblers in my house to four... including me. I love the green ones. So, three mini munchkins run around our house, and those three made my oh so precious truck obsolete. I had to sell it and upgrade to fit my family of 5 (not including the dog) without coming out of pocket or going into debt. Don't worry, I still hold it against the lot of them. After looking around, I settled on a 2004 Chevy Tahoe Z71. I had looked around the net and noticed that this body style has a lot of potential and could look really really good. Little did I realize, it took a lot of time and work to make them look like that. Unfortunately, I don't necessarily have that kind of time on hand, which I found out after Thing 2 and Thing 3. So with the little time that I do have, I've managed to modify it a bit and make it more presentable. But, everyone knows you can't turn a 'hoe into a housewife. This is the point where I post a couple pictures. You can see what this rolling mass of slow looks like when I brought it home. This is what the monstrosity known as my daily looks like now. 20161001_090600 by boyd smith, on Flickr 20161001_084027 by boyd smith, on Flickr 2016-10-04_09-23-39 by boyd smith, on Flickr No one stopped me.
