Friends. I'm not talking about your MySpace top 100, I'm talking about the friends who have seen you through a truck build, helped you whenever and however they could, and are with you at the shows cleaning your prized truck. Friends who don't care what time of day it is when you call and you're out of gas; or better yet, are your wingman when the hot girl has a not-so-hot friend with her.
I recently spent a weekend in Atlanta, Georgia, with some of my friends at the NOPI show. We towed what used to be my show S-10 up from Savannah to Atlanta in a Porsche Cayenne S. The Porsche was a blast and towed like a champ, but it was all the joking around, picking on each other, and the night of shooting pool I'll remember far beyond the road test. Next time you look at your truck out in the driveway, give your buddies a call and tell them thanks. - firstname.lastname@example.org
