    Gold, early 2nd gen @ 57S/5S interchange Saturday night. Couple inches of lift, 6k HIDs. I exchanged acknowledgement gestures with the brodozer driving and parted ways. Probably on his way home from Monster Jam

    Friday, on South St. parked at a tire shop by the Cerritos mall, I saw a dark colored (maybe gray or brown) lifted 4th gen, with black headlights and black wheels.

    Happy birthday bro.

    Not a CA story, but interesting none the less...

    Char and I were heading to a friends house in the Mach 1. We pulled in behind a first gen Ex which was just caked in thick mud, had a confederate flag hanging out of the side on a mast, no doors... We both turned left and I had Char motion to the guy to pull over. Young guy, 17. Asked him if he had ever been on our forum, he said he had. I handed him a business card and he asked if the orange truck was mine. Told him sure was... He said "I've been following that truck on YouTube for years".

    Turned out he had just left the mud bogs at Speedworld. Speedworld is also where I race the Dart and I had also been there earlier in the day. He busted his 5 speed in the mud. His truck was stuck in 4th and the shifter was just flopping around. Told him I had a spare tranny in my shed that had a problem shifting, but could be used for parts. He came over the next day and picked it up.

    Other than that, I never see anyone out here, so it's sure not worth it's own thread;) :banghead:

    ...Don't know who this is but I'm hoping they are on here..:dunno:

    ...Coming out of Newport Beach about 3:30 today in my X, (somewhere between the 405 and Micro Center) I roll up on this green? first gen with a 6" lift and looked like at least 33's..

    ..I thought it was Dave Alfaro at first but it was a guy about 20 something, dressed like he was coming back from a brunch or ?..

    I know the white one is on DR, and the blue and silver one sounds like a Mcneil built one.
