Ok so car seems to be running well so I took it to Cars n Coffee this morning. Nothing like a BABE car next to 3 Ferarris! And we got all the attention.







Than took it home to install Grill and Keg.





Tap on side of car! WINNING!

Leaving for NY in the morning.

are you sure you're going to want that much heat above your tap assembly?

Car went through a theme change the Tuesday night and now looks like this.




What a day...The Limo has tamed the "tail of the dragon". Car ran well except for a brake pad fire.....then,

Later we came upon an bike accident...we spent two hours there trying to stabilize the guy and get help but the local police and rescue department was so useless that they finally responded almost three hours after accident and by the time the poor guy got to and ambulance it was too late. He died right there in front of us. Lame *** local 1st responders...hope you can live with your week *** selves....
R.I.P.

Dragon:




Today another theme change and into Alabama, more pics later.

www.BABERALLY.com

So the BABE Rally is over and after 3200 miles of driving over 15 states (VA,DE,MD,NJ,NY,PN,WVA,TN,NC,GA,AL,MS,SC,LU) the Limo arrived home in Va Beach completing a 20 hour straight through drive on Sunday from New Orleans to VA. Runs great!

Good seeing you SamNAVY! Thanks for the cold ones!

Here is a Time Laps video of the entire week in one hour.


http://youtu.be/UZdmLwPUpCU


We changed themes 5 times during the rally and that secured our place winning the "ORGANIZERS CHOICE" award!

Theme one, Woody Wagon with surfboards on top!


Than went on to the Griswold's Vacation wagon.


Than painted car in parking lot and came up with the Ecto-1 Ghostbusters wagon.


Off to Walmart for a paint change again and we are now a Hearse.


Than for the final days run into NO we pimped it out as the Presidential Limo.


Found out many things on the road:
-Every car should have a beer tap on the side.

-Tail of the Dragon is interesting in a 4 ton Limo

-Rollers are the only way to paint a car!

-Drywall screws WILL beat a hole in a gas line given the time.

-BBQ Grilln on a hood is not a good idea when hood is covered in wood paneling....FIRE

-You can change shocks on side of road with little to no tools.


Good times with good friends was had!



PS: New Orleans is a DUMP!

PSS: Anyone want to buy a LIMO?

Might do it again. Was a good week off if you want to be the guy on the side of the road.

If you think New Orleans is a dump now..... you should have seen it before "cane Katreina washed alot of it away.

I go about 3 or 4 times a year....
