vrinner is starting off with a positive reputation.
The 7.3 needing a parking spot at lunch.

All I needed was a Prius parked next to me.

Very eventful day for the X...

It started with a trip to Cartoys; since I programmed a replacement remote, the alarm "forgot" that it was a diesel truck and had to wait a few seconds before starting.

$85 later:

-15 second WTS delay
-The remote start goes off the tach and not voltage
-The doors now auto lock and arm the truck if I forget to

Saw a few other super duty owners who had an alarm installed on the truck, smart, very smart.

Went up to Lake Conroe to catch up with an old friend, with the leaves finally changing colors and falling, I had a photoshoot for the X.

After the lake, I got an invite to an impromptu Holiday block party. Not 30 minutes after I get there, some of the guys decide they're going to do mudding in an F150; 10 minutes later, I was tapped to go pull them out of the mud.

He was in deep and couldn't get out with just me pulling, so a cocky Jeep owner (who I oddly enough call a friend) says he can get him out no problem. He spins his tires and then everyone realized what I've been saying from the get go: "Teamwork is the only way we're getting this guy un-stuck". So we strap the Jeep to the X, I set the DP to the tow tune, drop it into first, and between the two of us, we pulled the well stuck F150 out of the mud.

All in all a good day with the X

Special "clean air vehicle" parking spots? lol, only in CA. I bet all the other parking spots are known to cause cancer there.

Love the branch cutters on the Jeep. We won't bug you too much for fraternizing with a Jeep.

Move the canoe over a bit and you've got room for that little car on top.

My friend that drove it (it's his company car) is 6' 3" and he hated it. We went to the beach in my Ex and he couldn't stop talking about how nice it is and how much he wants one haha.

I asked to see the squirrel cage motor, but he didn't even know whee it was. He said it only gets about 30-35 mpg on the highway, but he's too scared so he takes back roads when he can.

I saw an infomershal on TV about the Smart car and they did a side impact crash test and it actually fared pretty well, protecting the two "passengers" better than I figured it would. Still, I wouldn't feel safe in one in a wreck!
