Wow :cool:

You do know that I was Truck of the Week previously right? The first one actually. I wasn't aware you could be chosen again. If so, then being chosen as the first TOTW, and now as the first to be chosen again, my truck must be THE BEST on on the board :D (with the exception of the moderators of course ;) )
