Default Go Texas!!

So I am living in Texas now a-la grandma's boy. Things I notice here about the types of cars (not trucks... everyone owns a truck here..):
  • A shit load of Impala's from mid 90's on up. 70% of them are sittin' on 20's chromed out. Some with body kits.
  • A few visually unsettling imports. I charged up my point and shoot so I can post a picture next time.
  • Chargers/Magnums/Mustangs/Challengers. They all sound very, very mean, and look very, very fast. But it's the car of choice out here for speed.
  • All the other fast cars are SRT-4's.
I went to the Sonics here and I guess it's the local hangout. No one even noticed the wagon. Which is good. Some tool lit up his tires coming out the drive through and almost got creamed by a semi on the exit. So it looks like to be a good place to wait for an accident to happen.

On the way down some tool in a truck was messing around and did like 80mph from my rear bumper, and then got in front of me and brake checked me a few times. The a-hole in the passenger tossed out an empty beer/soda can, which was enough to blow out my fog light I just replaced. So I passed them and tossed out a full Mello Yello can (good drink BTW). They tried to keep up, and I had to take a 20 mile detour to make sure I wasn't followed.

While looking for a fender for my moms car, I met the old guy at the junk yard who drives a 1976 Camaro. He said he hated those import cars because you can't listen to what they sound like and gauge how much power they have since we just toss on an exhaust and call it a day. Nice guy.

Cars and Coffee is tomorrow, so I should try to clean up the wagon and head out. And if I go, I'll take some pics.

Hehehe, yeah and being from Cali helps with some girls. Man I wish I had a camera on my phone, this one girl had a waist about as big as a normal chick, but her ass and thighs were like "POW!!".

You confirmed all my suspicions about that backwards state, now I won't ever feel the need to visit it myself and see just how redneck they are over there.

Thanks!
