My son says "Dad, I'm 2 and a half months old...WTF would you buy me this 1972 Indian dirtbike for?"
"you'll understand someday kid...same reason I gave you the 1950 *****'s CJ3A"
What kid drives a 1950 CJ3A to school?
What kid rips up the street on a 1972 Indian JC-54?

I probably mislead when I said "chick". I should have said female.

"Black House of Kolor with a Flat Clear coat(Not some rattle can job)"

...you paid someone to have your car painted so it looks like a rattle can job? I'm guessing the tons and tons of orange peel on that "flat clear coat" was also on purpose?

Why not? People will pay $200 for a pair of jeans that look like a hobo was wearing them when he fell off of a train going 60 MPH.


Note to self:

1: Buy every pair of jeans off the rack at the local Goodwill store.
2: Pay hobos to fall off of trains while wearing them.
3: (?)
4: Profit.

I'm sure you can probably ship them over seas, have them wear it for few years, then return them, that will do too.
