Icon7 Put the truck to use

I went canoeing on the river with a friend of mine. Her dad let us use his boat...10 minutes after I first met him. Really cool guy - glad he trusted me. I made sure everything was nice and secure for the drive there

if you need a tach to drive a manual you shouldn't be driving one.

Yeah, the whole interior is stock blue :D

I have interesting seats too. They have mini air-compressors to adjust stiffness.

I know it helps you learn a lot quicker....not all people who drive manuals are into driving. They're usually cheaper
