Your defender looks all used... they only wave to people with really shiny ones...

If you can pull that off I will catch a flight out there to see that in person. I would love to see Barry's chrome plated curb feelers get scratched....

I think the light blink is industry standard here on the East side. Hands are strictly for throwing gang signs.

Surrounded by V13 and Shoreline Crips in Venice so I try to remain neutral with my signs. I had to make peace with them 10 years ago when I started my business and since then we dont get tagged and all my employees get to keep their car stereos. On the Westside light blinks generally mean there is a cop nearby.

Here in Houston people in "Jeeps" wave at me all the time..then when they realize what they've done they look all embarrassed...

Congrats on getting the family settled out here. Be sure to ask Barry for his floor jack and make sure your dog is no where near your truck when you decide its a good time to let it down! Im sure my head would of supported the weight of the RRC

Your giant mellon would have supported it just fine... heck if I had told you my sister thought you were hot we could have skipped using the jack all together and just used your inflating head


Actually moving Nola from Topanga to my house was not a fun time... four floor jacks and 8 jackstands trying to keep it stable going on and off the trailer without wheels or even axles.... would prefer not to repeat the experience but it did remind me of fun times with Barry's jack...
