    Me and the boy went pig tippin on Sunday. I didn't get any pics, of course, since I was in the truck, but 4rnr finally got some up on Yotatech.

    I wasn't driving at the time. My 16 year old was going a bit fast down Cooter's Hill at the Cliffs ORP.


    No people damage at all. JoeZ made record time up Milemarker Hill to winch the pig back on her feet. The pig is a little scarred, but it's getting hard to tell damage from one trip to the next. Biggest carnage was the w/s, the tail light (that was already broken) and the chrome vent thingy on the quarter. The rest is just sheet metal that was mostly bondo and rust anyway.

    Glad that you and your son are OK. The scars just give the pig more character. It's a nice "get the hell out of my way" look for cruising N'ville. :)

    Yup. Strangely enough the N-ville cop that I passed a couple of blocks from home didn't come see why I was driving around without a w/s. :D


    I'm looking for a nice pig body to put on my 80 frame for a dd. Naperville deserves a daily driven pig just to shake em up a bit.

    Fired right up. I bumped the starter to make sure it wasn't hydrolocked, then started it up. Took a little bit to burp the air out of the power steering and clear out the oil on the left bank.
