....And THAT is why I own a manual transmission accord coupe. However after a week driving HellBetty I found I did not look so smooth shifting gears in traffic!
When my son bought his Tacoma at 17, I took him to Georgetown Ky to pick it up. I can always hold over his head that I had to drive it over an hour back to Cincinnati that night for him because he could not drive a stick shift yet.

Btw HellBetty is mad she can't attend y'all's Boise meetup seeing how she's from Pocatello and all.

^^^ i forgot your in an ex idaho rig. she will be here in spirt

totally agree herb....the mt tranny is becoming a lost art. ive taught a few friends better halves and some of their kids to drive mt trannys. while they all did fine, a few of them are still scared to use one daily. claiming that theres to much going on. yet they can drink coffee, suck on a vape, talk on the phone, eat, and go through their purse all while driving....

i do the same thing too annie...get used to driving the van, then be unsmooth once i get back in the one manual car we have left. doesn't take too long to get back in the swing though, lol.

Have two days of work outside of Bozeman, three days to get over to Kalispell, and then a day or two of work there then a day or two to get back down to Boise. Browns are hitting streamers pretty hard right now.

bump up for tomorrow.

conumdrum, hows your schedule looking? something youll be able to swing or are you headed to Montana?

ron, was an absolute pleasure meeting you saturday. had a great time hanging out and bsing. rare that I cross paths with oldschool bmxers like yourself, so it was really fun to shoot the shit bout that stuff!

on that note, I forgot to mention that another van owner that will be at this meet tomorrow used to live next door to stu thompson way back when. he is gonna bring some old memorabilia for me to check out. either way, I know your busy, but if your around, hope you can make it over to the meet for a bit.

bummer, but understand ron. Ill take pix of whatever he brings along and forward.

no idea if hes an alien on a bmx bike, but definitely in a car. hes no slouch on a wakeboard, snowboard, or a mt bike either, lol.

met up with ron a few days prior as he was going to be out of town for the actual meet. got rushed as we were leaving, so I never did poke my head in there to check it out, but she was all buffed out and purdy outside. that maroon is a really nice color.


i started by running up the street to hopefully find the owner of this little gem. a 90 4wd 3.0 diesel hiace.



gents name was brady and he wanted to come say hi, but he recently had twins and couldn't break away which is totally understandable. still he made some time to let me check out his ride. hes a lurker here, so if he reads this, thanks again for opening your van and taking the time to let me check it out. way cool little rig!

then i meandered back down and met up with firedude and we shot the **** till the rest of the group started showing up. definitely cool putting some faces to the screen names. sorry I got sidetracked once we got in the bar. ran into a buddy (and his wife that was our server) i haven't seen in 20 some odd years...

tysons new van was really clean, really nice pu man!! glad trevor was in town to come say hi...you can just photoshop your rig in these shots, lol.

nates (naterry) van. again, your van is way cool. great execution on putting your ideas on a canvas. I really like the open-ness of the layout when shes all open and exposed.









a few group shots...





brains (brian94ht) van. he really needs to update his build thread. hes done some cool stuff in this van. super clean dude, always enjoy your style


brains (firedude67) smb. nice and clean ride. jealous of a completed interior, lol.


cobys (obieone) advanced conversion van.


was great meeting the rest of the locals I haven't crossed paths with yet. next time, lets do this around a campfire...or at least up 8th street thanks for putting this together nate. was a good time last night.

Thanks Nate for the meet and to Shea for cross posting here!
A must do again in the hills.
