Being raised in rural farming and oilfield country called OilBerta, it is nice to be perceived as a redneck. That perception sort of lowers expectations letting some of my more liberal views come as a shock to anyone who catches my screen name.
But deep down, I am a hardworking redneck who values independence and freedom of expression over the extremes of political correctness... lol.... and excessive social programming. Flat out, only the most destitute, those with sincere disabilities need or deserve public assistance. Currently our social programs enable people who only need to get the lead out and find a job. But we definitely have a culture completely out of balance....
My previous vehicle before my 4runner was a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR. It was a lot of fun. Fast and furious haha. But seriously it was a blast to drive. I like to have off pavement adventures so it was going to require to much modification to run off road, and it would never be able to traverse real obstacles. It is a deadly track and rally car that was grossly underestimated. I miss some aspects of it, but I love my 4runner.
Ive used my screen name since like 1997 its also my emails . It comes from my requirement to only drive forced induction vehicles and back in the day my dumbass thought maybe someone would want to start a turbo upfitter business using that name and buy it and the email domains i own.
My other passion is Mopar cars. My screen name is for the 1968 Hemi Plymouth GTX that we pulled out of a storage unit where it had sat for 30 years. Left the outside as found and built a new drivetrain with a 472 hemi = 472HemiGTX
