Might the fellowship of the lounge consider...

    Giving my ugly duckling a shot at the next GMOTM?

    Last weekend was it's last run and after I go to Kert's this weekend the pumpkin is getting stripped and rebuilt into a tube thing on another frame. I was wondering if maybe the good people of the lounge would consider rallying the troops and supporting my bid for GMOTM in remembrance of the scary orange creation.

    Most of us have voted, that means me. If you don't make it this month make sure to get a head start next month.

    Probably not, I called in a favor to get my dad a different pull truck for our boat this weekend so I could steal his pickup to bring my rig to Kert's. He wants to go up to Devil's Lake with our boat that weekend, and it'd take a hell of a favor for me to line up a different tow rig for him again. Got an open seat? :crazy:

    I figure it's a fitting end to the pumpkin.

    I literally owe the rig to CK5. If not for this site I'd never have the balls or knowledge to build that rig. I came to this site a stupid noob knowing nothing and now I have at least 20 posts in the tech sections. :haha:

    The rig is going to have pieces going into at least two fellow members rigs and a rear axle I picked up for it is at a third member's shop and will probably be used for mockups and experimentation. It truly is an all CK5 rig and I feel it represents the site and what it's capable of very well.

    That...and I'm trolling for votes.

    Thats exactly why I am so proud to be GMOTM. This site literally taught me 90% of the knowledge it took to build my truck. BTW, if my beater can get enough votes to win, so can yours.

    Oh yeah, nothin wrong with some hand shakin', friend makin' man whoreing! I did my share to win.
