    I think the city wouldn't allow us to use one cause we have a double barrel but they wouldn't let us put it up

    I've had 2 Chevy trucks in the last 3 years, they are great fun especially as I live in the UK and not many people have even seen one before.
    Looks like a great start keeps those updates coming!
