    When I bought my 'Burb it had a set of Dixie horns on it. They were thrown out of the window on the way down the street right after I got the keys.

    Where should i start? :haha: I'd prolly have to go look for something, i know i have something thats hacked in there. I had my taillight covers taped on for a while then i got 2screws to hold each side in, the other 2 places where a screw goes into are broke off. Damn PO. Pretty much anything the PO did would work. Ive fixed alot of it but still have a ways to go.

    Forgot to mention the volvo seats they had mounted in there with a drawer in the middle that always slide open and hit the transfer case shifter. Blue interior and this seat is black. I changed that about a year ago.

    My stereo is mounted in a ammo can, bolted to the underside of the dash.

    the list is long but distinguished:

    the rear license plate is held on by speaker wire wrapped around the bumper.:haha:
    i don't have a tailgate, and it's a sammy so it's pretty obvious
    my turnsignals are LEDs, but i didn't retard the timing, so they blink to fast.
    all 4 tires are the same size but not the same brand
    holes in the floor covered with floormats
    once the exhaust fell apart behind the manifold pipe, and i drove around for a couple days like that
    for months i only had 1 windshield wiper working
    duct tape in plain view in the interior
    permanent mud stained interior
    parts that are sort of structural have fallen off and i just left them off.
    no front bumper (at all)
    there's supposed to be 4 bolts holding the rear part of the hard top on, but only 1 really holds it on
    used electrical cord to drag some stuff around. left it wrapped around hitch shackle for a week or so.
    you have to shift into 2nd gear "just so" or it'll grind. syncros prolly:crazy:
    speedo and odom quit. fuel guage quit too.
    passenger side seat belt doens't work. i should really get that fixed...:D

    i have to laugh to keep from crying. *shakes head*

    One of my buddies were driving around in his Burb for a few weeks with a set of booster cables holding one rear door closed by attaching to the other on the inside. Real funny when sitting in back, like a amusement ride with the bar in front of you.

    If it's helping to support the exhaust, then that makes it functional. Much less hillbillyish if it does.

    Oh man I don't know if I should even start on the jacked up stuff the PO did to my 71 pickup. We could start with the stenciled/spraypainted "redneck" on the toolbox or the ford LTD column that he had put in there, or my all time favorite was the ratchet-strap in place of the busted drivers side motor mount. But the sheetmetal was clean so now its mine. :doah: I'll find some pics later...:crazy:
