Oh I love any vehicle's also but if i had to choose chevy or ford itd be chevy. I absolutely LOVED my 2003 Trailblazer I had, I beat the **** out of it and it never quit me. I regret getting rid of it.

One car I want to try and see how it drives is the fisker electric cars, they are pretty gorgeous.

Pepsi

And I'd prefer a Ford 4wd TTB setup with a chevy motor whenever I go into the ford vs. chevy argument. I'd take a new corvette over the new GT500 too. Although, a ford GT vs. the new corvette, not sure... Would definitely have to drive both first hand to answer that one!

RIP chuck strange but your comment on engineering plus the rolls statement made me think of this. He died just a month or so ago but was a regular at most desert races!

Yes, it's 4WD, yes those are real beadlocks, yes it's caged, yes the interior was still rolls and is damn nice! I really wonder what's going to happen to this car now that he's gone. He was a stuntman in his prime and has been called the evil kineval of trucks. That dude should've died a long time ago in a few wrecks he had that's for sure!

That's pretty cool. I bet he did it right as well. Not like these ****box firebirds on truck frames that are held together with gum and hope.

I've got a DPMS store bought AR. It had feed/extraction issues with the first 4-5 magazines and has been completely smooth ever after. It's chambered for 223/5.56, and I've only ever shot 223 through it. Reloads, factory new, no further issues. It's got a zero magnification red dot on it, and I can consistently hit stuff at 200yds(bout as far as I can see with crappy eyes) I'm sure with a decent scope, it would easily be accurate to 400 yds!

That car has seen probably as much dirt miles as some of our jeeps if not more! He was a regular working recovery and there's lots of footage of him dragging or towing race buggies and trucks back to the pits. He was an interesting dude for sure!

One of the desert race guys put this together for his memorial at Glen Helen a week or two ago. Has some interesting old school jump footage and his insane wreck that I don't understand how he survived!!!

Yeah, there's a local shop that carries it, dummy!

http://www.yelp.com/biz/rocket-fizz-las-vegas

i dunno the cost, but they sell it.

I still have a few half cans from my last trip to NH, and my friends got me a 4 pack from rocket fizz for christmas.

there used to be some website that sold 'subscriptions' to Moxie, they may be around still, i dunno.

Im pretty sure they are distributed by coke, but only in new england.

Yeah, I've never seen it in the warehouse. It's never been on any of the trucks. If it has, it's been in very small quantities anyway. I know for certain it's never been up for employee sales since I've been there.

Thanks Doc. I guess that's why they made you a mod. haha

I think we should get a big shooting outing set up when it cools off a bit. Maybe late Oct or in Nov some time.

Sure it has, they just don't like you so they keep it a secret from you.
