    gotta add this,
    You drive by a lifted truck and stare at it, your wife slaps you and says stop staring at her, you say who?, I was staring at the truck and she says what truck.

    That is so awesome. I think we all share the same sickness...but I like it.
    One more thing. I read about somebody tonight that is worse than us, I think. The editor of Car Craft magazine wrote in his latest editorial that he has 18 cars/trucks. Now THAT is psycho.
