Years ago, I had a '69 El Camino with 6 foot straight pipes coming off the mufflers out the back. A guy was tail gating me 'real close', I left it in gear, turned 'off' the ignition, then back 'on'. Flames came out the rear with smoke, a loud 'bang' and this guy was probably about a hundred yards back, real quick, when I looked in the rear view mirror.
Im gonna get one of those hooks for my hitch when it goes on. Its not my fault I forgot to take it off after wheeling and your rad is now stuck on it.
I think I will do this too and put a sticker above that reads "radiator fishin'".
I brake checked a woman who was almost close enough to change my radio station. She swerved out and got next to me, she started screaming and shaking an angry fist at me (the happy one was driving). She then swerves toward my Jeep, not realizing that one of us would be safe.... I swerved toward her laughing maniacally. She realized that her bluff was called and made tracks quick.
I have also been known to drop two gears with no brakes. Man those M/T's sound cool.
I think people tail gait because of where they are from. If you were born in the city where bumper to bumper aggressive driving is the norm you bring the bad habits into all driving situations. I am from snowbird country and I notice it a lot. Its sort of like the space bubble thing with people. If you grew up taking the subway your space bubble is probably going to smaller than someone who grew up somewhere else. I noticed it a lot when I moved to Europe. It takes a while to get use to the boundaries. Getting nudged and honked at was also a daily norm. When I moved back to the US the roads seemed huge, the shoulder was about the same size as the motorway road lanes. I also have buddies who come from out of town and I notice that they drive close enough to be considered tail gaiting..
getting honked at is one thing,but if i was to get nudged they would learn kwik how we country boyz in the swamp were raised..id drive over there frickin vehicle as i was calling the sherrif,,thats my uncle,thats brothers a judge,that dabbles in things he shouldnt,cause he married his sister,hahahah.
just kiddin lol..
everyone in fla seems to ride my azz when im in the jeep,,always..i assume they think they can get closer because of the jeep ground clearance or??
ive got a mack dog on the hood that pees out the front..i like the idea of putting one in the back also..
or get a sign that says stay back 50 feet or the flame thrower will ignite... while im spraying them with the washer fluid,john
When I had my XJ, I turned the rear washer squirter straight back. Only had to use it once or twice. I'd always have people in F250s or H2s tailgate me to prove that their truck with a leveling kit sat higher than an XJ on 3 inches.
I have a morning ritual that I need to share. I call it "the terminator". First I crouch down in the shower in the classic "naked terminator traveling through time" pose. With my eyes closed I crouch there for a minute, visualizing either Arnold or the guy from the second movie (not the chick in the third one because that one sucked) and I start to hum the terminator theme. Then I slowly rise to a standing position and open my eyes. It helps me to proceed through my day as an emotionless, cyborg badass. The only problem is if the shower curtain sticks to my terminator leg. It ruins the fantasy.
did the windshield washer thing with my dads cherokee. the hose for the back sprayer was all dry rotted so i cut it. when you push the button it sprays pretty far but on the high way all the wind just makes it go all crazy. its good in town tho. spraying that jerk in the face with the convertible mustang that was riding my a## at a stop light gave me satisfaction
My rear sprayer hose is rotted also, I use it all the time. It usually doesn't work the 1st time cause people think its just your windshield washer but if you do it twice and hold it long enough they get the idea. If i want be a real big *** i could spray it then slam on my brakes or fill it with antifreeze and watch them drive with their head out the window. But im not that mean.
