Kevin, I liked the pimp wagon you posted a while back. Had to dig through all your pics to find it
If you like that one you will LOVE this one !:beer1:
Sportsmobile. These things absolutely rock. You don't see them around here very much but they are all over SoCal. Allot of guys down there use them for Baja surf/fishing trips.
On a side note, I'm picking up a Tundra Double Cab 4x4 next week, so that'll be my new best fishing rig.
pre-ordered the new Toyota FJ cruiser, be here later this month. Although, I have to actually see it first and take a drive before I lay down the cash. Its a real sweet rig, locking dif and transfer case, they tested it out on the Rubicon, some killer vids at Toyota.com.
I might have a 2001 toyota tacoma V6 TRD with a snugtop for sale, any takers??
YT, Love the old cruisers, hope the new one is dope. skeet, skeet, skeeeet!
Whitey congrats on the soon to be FJ they look Sa-weet! It has that retro look to to which gives it the old school characteristcs. Hopefully it has the balls to match... What collor did you get?
yea man i cant believe your getting the new fj. we gotta be friends sooner or later. i wanna at least ride in one.
You got it, Sultan access from the parking lot, at the Boys and Girls Club. I'll give you the fly next time I see ya'.
the beauty of 4 piece rods is that you have much more room for good tunage..............it's all about the tunes..........
Yo Kevin, Is that Bus a '62? I can tell by the small rear window. My ol' '62 had a 6-volt system, so I'd park it on a hill or rise in case I had to push start it. The brass kingpin bushings were getting a little worn, and it wandered a bit, but it was the best surfarian rig I ever had... i sold it before rust took it down.
Amen to that.
I'm not sure that there is a right way for me to say this, but for once I have to give Jim the full on iagree 'cause the beater high-gas mileage car is the way to go. And '93 is new enough that the emissions will still be low and safety's not a huge issue.
You can also sleep in the back of a subie wagon unless you're insanely tall. Takes a bit of fiddlng with the insides but it's not a big deal to figure out.
Dodge / Freightliner / VW all put their own badges on them.
While you have your visa card out at the NAPA store, buy a roll of the vacuum hoses most often found under your hood. Your hoses don't care how many miles are on the rig, they care about how old they are, and if they leak, your pollution control devices don't work, and your onboard computer shifts to rich, so your mileage goes bad. I had a Ford that did that, too. I ultimately changed hoses about every two years, and sold the rig with 325K on it, still getting 15 mpg outa a 351.
I now drive a 02 chevy, best rig I've ever owned. Great fishing rig, comfy, tows my drift boat, hauls my pontoon, big back seat secures my stuff, and great stereo for those long road trips.
I think it may have been a 63. It was my fishing partners who was going to school in Bozeman. I had a 68 camper van with a bed & ice box in the back. Funny thing when I was in high school everyone made fun of it except on Friday and Saturday nights then they wanted to borrow it. Funny how that works !!
Here's the ultimate fly fishing vehicle...
