    Just found this place via the power of google and I LIKE IT! I got rear-ended and the old Ford is no more. I replaced it with a decommissioned 06' Taco standard cab work truck, fresh off the paper mill parking lot at the end of its lease. Got it for a SONG, and since I grew up running work trucks in paper mills, I'm used to it!

    Gots a 2.7 L 4cyl, a 5 speed manual tranny, pearl white paint and the 1/2 ton suspension package I threw in some Sony 6x9s I had laying around, thanks to the first thread I found here (the excellent 'add rear speakers' thread!), otherwise just a locking work box in the back for my tools and some window tint.

    Anyhow, howdy to y'all!

    Indeed it is.

    I was born and raised about an hour from Lambeau Field, and a diehard Pack homer since the age of about four.

    Its really amazing. People down here in Florida literally stop me on the street and ask me football questions. All. The. Time.

    My wife thought I was kidding when I told her about it, then she went trunning errands with me one Saturday last month. Six different random strangers stopped me and we ended up in 15+ minute football discussions. At the grocery store, at Home Depot, it doesn't matter where....even at stoplights!

    I don't mind though, as I *love* football :)

    I work for a company that does alot of out of state driving and alot of people will stop me and ask me about Bret or about the Packers....I think it's funny cause all I know is what I read about it in the paper like them.

    Yea, but I'm 'the football guy'....that annoying guy that wins the office football pool EVERY year and spends more time reading and writing about football than the pope does praying.

    I'm either in a Packers shirt, or cap, or something pretty much at all times. It isn't hard to pick me out of the crowd ;)
