Re: Project: Brava-dime

ok The frown is in no way associated with you going to FL, just simply because you wouldn't be coming to IN

Re: Project: Brava-dime

trust me man, id love to take a month to swing by everyones address on here who has chatted with me or wanted to see the truck. its just not feesable to make everyone 100% happy. again, this is still in "talks" and in no way am i locked in nor am i walking away from it. ive always dreamed to hit TEXAS HEAT WAVE or TEX-MEX or GATOR DRAG or any other show ive ever read about online or in MINITRUCKIN' but trips like those arent in the cards for a small town minitrucker like me. this would be biggr than the superbowl and the world series combined if all the cards fall into play

Re: Project: Brava-dime

DAMN IT WICKED!!!! thats my fear, just outta town mobbing at 65 and BLAMMO, instant 3 cylinder (lmao). im fearful to be honest but with concuring fear comes excellent concor'age to me. imagine it, driving a completely junkyard build across this fine country of ours.
*plus, i have only been to like 4 states on my life. this is a win/win if it occurs

As much as I would love to see this at Spring Fling, I will tell you Heat Wave is closer to you and is a much better show. I went there last year, great show.

Re: Project: Brava-dime

after much consideration and attempting to make a mountain out of a mole hill, the idea of running across the country has been washed. the guy i was gonna caravan w/ has to have back surgery from an accident he had during work, add to that unkle sam RAPED me for the first time in 17 years on our taxes. i guess i should have lagged on posting the possibility but i had to share it.
i do however have a show update, went just over 2 hours north of me to a show thrown by Pharcyde Customs car club and altho the weather was rediculous it was a blast to hang with the peoples and see rides that usually i dont see. was killer but check the drive-home pics:

leaving my town, looks grim:



at the show:











and to get home:

Re: Project: Brava-dime

i take them with me at shows along w/ my cleaning supplies where im not exactly sure when its gonna rain and i have some wooden drawer pulls that i swap when i get to those shows. i also rain-x the windows so even tho its was a monsoon, it wasnt as bad as it couldve been. i hate wipers cause they scratch the crap outta the stickrs on the windshield but its safety first, always

STIRFREY - ONELOWGREEK = thanks you guys, it was built to be driven. weather not a prohibiting factor either way.

Re: Project: Brava-dime

over this weekend i was fortunate enough to catch a ride on the //relaxed atmosphere caravan to the FORBIDDEN FANTASY show in Perris, Ca. about 4 1/2 hours south of us. i had my ass handed to me in the full or radical class, the stuff coming out now is overwhelming to say the least. Oliver Porters (domination the video creator) Toyota was there and easily the best truck ive ever seen front to back, top to bottom. absolutely clean........ also have a few pics from the drive home, surreal monsoon weather all the way thru the tehachapi mountains complete with snow.





















Olivers Toyota............



















and heres a frame that is being built for an upcoming s-10..... DROOLED FOR HOURS ON THIS!

















and the drive home for me...........

If you come to camp n drag in waveland indiana. I,ll hand you a cold case of whatever you want & give you my cell number to give a shout when you arrive at the entrance of the camp grounds!! I,ll keep em cold from the grocery store to the cooler in the bed!!! I, Would love to see this truck parked next to Les Voudrie crew cab toyota in severed ties. You both have built a one off one of a kind crew cab long bed truck that people literally have dropped jaws over! Not to mention Camp N drag is such a great time, this year will be one to remember for sure!

People come from as far north as canada to as far south as texas and everywhere inbetween. But I think any further discussion should happen in the camp n drag thread so we dont ruin this wonderful one.

From what I understand There is "LBD" hidden in many places all over Oliver's Toyota... It stands for Little Baby Dick.... and is a "gift" from the guys at Sprengels Innovative Kustoms
