Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God!
It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffee maker.

Chris you have a beautiful truck! I voted for you also. I like the last pic from the drivers side in the grass, It just has the right stance and attitude. I also really liked the way you used the orange color and the old valve covers and tabs with the new stuff. Very cool ride.Period

Re: December 2014 ToTM - Mega Motivation

Wow ! Thanks guys ! I'm stoked to have been selected this month . It's been a long road getting to this point. Good times, frustrating times , sleepless nights . But the response I've received these past two months makes it all worth the effort . My wife and two sons are happy to see it completed and we can now all
enjoy it together . A few more upgrades are in order so keep an eye on my build thread to see what comes next ! Thanks again , I'm honored to have received your vote of approval !
