What are these people thinking?

Browsing another forum I belong to, I viewed some photo galleries
of some of the other members and came up with this question.
Doesn't he have friends to give some sound advice or what?

It's not what he's thinking......

Just look at the house man, can we say HILLBILLY?

In order to pronounce the term correctly you have to sustain and squeel the first syllable out like a pig, then use your normal tone of voice for the rest. It spells like this HIILLLBILLY! .

A hillbilly's proper name? Hillwilliam

At first I was thinking just another ugly spoiler, but upon further inspection I realized thats just one of those razorback things that is supposed to come off the back of the cab.

Maybe a real bad attempt at customization? Maybe hes dyslexic? Maybe he just can't read instructions I guess we'll never know

In Weimers town I saw a gut that had a white Ford and did the exact same thing. I think when they look at it they are too dumb to figure it goes behind the cab. LOL!!!

That is MINOR compared to this guy.

He says he has 120 GRAND in this 40 Ford.....

And it is a LONG way from being done.......

The bid price seems resonable (8600), but I wonder what the reserve is.......

What da haaay??

One mans junk is another mans.......never mind?? I really wonder if he knows the wing thing is a cab thing? That 40 is a really nice custom. Some shop probably got into his pocket and he lost interest before he ran out of cash and got something else to drive. I like the tool box! I just put a plastic one/tool box, on my 75 Dodge PU.

All I can say is I thought I'd seen everything, but as it seems not yet. And that's all I'll say on both.

I'd have to give the 40 ford a little credit for the VERY nice looking powder coated engine. SOOO Shiny.. Too bad the rest of the car aint as good lookin as the engine lol.

as for the truck... I'm guessin he had it correct until he decided to buy the tool box... Then after hours of trying to get the tool box to fit he finally decided to take the "spoiler" off and put it where it would be most effective. lol

HA HA FUNNY Michael, my house is all white with light blue trim, and my S-10 is seafoam green and rust colored primer, and I never had one of those racerback things on my truck.
My house can be seen in my photo album, in the background of the pic of my '79 3/4-ton Scottsdale, to dis-spell your faintly remote attempt at humor, funny man.
Just for that I will post your senior picture for you.
HA HA FUNNY MAN, your on the net.
