This person was tailgating on 95% snow covered roads on the freeway this morning. Weaving in and out to get around me, I was going with the slow flow 3 car length spacing like everyone else so not obliged to move over; I did drop a gear and let them hear the ZZP exhaust on my Cruze when they would have cut me off.

Annnnnd, it was a tool in a blue Subaru. Probably had snow tires too by the way they didn't spin out shifting lanes like they were.

Was nice 60's yesterday and supposed to be the same today. Sadly we are expecting more rain the whole weekend with possible snow sun when it drops down to estimated teens.
Had a mishap yesterday, merica's flag unraveled and turned into a parachute at 80mph. Snapped the support cable from the roof and broke the pole. Good news though is ive started on the trailer hitch project. Got it tacked up, more welding and support bolts to follow after work today.

Snow seems like it would be fun to drive in from time to time. But only on an open road. Traffic would suck.

I kept looking at only the first two pictures and thinking, what the hell is going on and then hypothesized this car must be some type of disowned hoopty mobile...then started to scroll down and realized I have an amazing perception.

It looks like the car is either getting anally probed, or shitting out a metal stick.

I vote anally probed, that can be pleasurable if done right

It is a sweet mod to keep folks off your butt when they see it. My patent pending idea involves a laser cut steel and formed alligator head with teeth that is spring loaded so when someone gets to close you brake check them and the alligator bites down on their front fascia and you rip it off. Then have a lever to release the bumper just before they run over it. It's called the "Tailgator".

Folks don't know what to do when this car comes by, they try getting close to take pics but its like they second guess themselves at getting close enough. So I guess it kinda works. I do like that idea though "The TailGator"
