Should be mt tires. Idc bout road noise!
I wassa shittin' Anda gettin' it last night on hwy 85.
Whole way down the highway I was running about 75-sometimes speedo pegged, Google maps said 98 ish or so at one point.
Had several people rubber necking my old girl when I passed their 2019 car!!!!!!!!!
What's obnoxious about A/T tires? I snore louder than them.
I’d like to go, it seems feasible. It’s about 475 miles, seven hours to get there. I’d plan to go in the ole Jimbo, of course. It looks like I finally got all the ignition bugs sorted out, and she’s doing better these days than she has in the past two years.
Mine are noisy
The only thing I can't say 100% I stand behind is the transmission. At some point its been removed and had service, but it's kinda sluggish, sort-of slides into gear.
Dad said it used to slam thru gears.
Before I drained all the fluid out the trans, it would bang thru gears, now it just kinda slides thru gears after a fluid and filter change
I dumped all the magical pixie dust out.
(it was getting stuck in 3rd gear and not downshifting, I guess from sitting for 6+ years)
So I'll wanna have that total rebuilt real stout before I even consider a drive to Texas.
Ok so with Vince driving, that cuts our drive time from 16 hours down to 12 ish
It does! fuck.
A 2 hour drive took me 1.5 hours it seemed lol (probably not exact)
Enough Adderall (kidding) and energy drinks and I will single handedly drive there
You do you, boo boo.
Just saw this.
Man I'd love to go, bit that's smack dabb in the middle of turkey season. And if I went the wife and son would want to go...not that she's into squares but that she would want to go do something.
How far is it? Hell I drive 8 hours a day in the truck like it's nothing. I spend all day in the truck now a days. My corona office is now my truck.
Texas is so damn big. My 1/2 way point to my destination in Texas was IN TEXAS.
As much fun as it would be to actually meet some of you kids and clowns, there's no way I could finance a trip there ........
And then there are the times I just don't feel sociable and stay in my own little world.
