Redneck SUV



You will notice we've gone with a new template. No matter how hard I tried, I was never able to set up the other template with larger photos. But we think this one will work just fine.

Comme on dit chez nous : "c'est un camion couleur locale".

Thank you for your visit on my blog (my english is very bad !)

Per Stromsjo said...

Is that a car? Well, always good to see people finding new ways to consume our limited supply of fossil fuels in the noisiest of ways. London has shown us a lot of protests recently. I imagine this is a protest against the future.

(Good shot. In more ways than one.)

I wonder where that car has been. It sure looks muddy!

I'm with Per here... ;-)

Bergson said...

I like your new template your photos are more visible

Jacob said...

@ Per & CQ - I think this is what some folks would call a "swamp buggy." If you're going to go running around Florida swamps you need to be high out of the water so the gators don't get you, with big, knobby tires so you don't get stuck and end up living for years where the mosquitoes are as big as a bird, eating raw fish and stuff in the middle of nowhere.

Jacob said...

Thanks, Bergson...that's what I was trying to accomplish and simply couldn't do it with the old template...

How?

Tricia said...

That's a big one!

On my page, you commented about the building! I know what you mean - that's a building downtown that they're turning into low income housing apartments. They're beat up buildings

Vogon Poet said...

The new template is fine, I really like the larger photos.
How do they climb on that monster? Great catch and very good shot.

Jacob said...

@ Vogon Poet - I have no clue as to how they get up there...maybe there's a ladder that pulls down from the rear?

Probably very carefully!

This may be a "monster," but I've seen some much bigger than this!

Irina said...

Jacob, good object for new template :)

magiceye said...

good template!
super pic!
have you driven this?

Jacob said...

@ Magiceye - No, I've never driven this. I have no idea who the owner is. I just thought it made for an interesting photo.

april said...

*lol* that looks like two cars in one.

Lois said...

Looks like someone went mud bogging!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

WOW! That's an IMPRESSIVE SUV (ugh!) Nice capture!

I'd like to post larger photos too.

Jacob said...

@ Mary Stebbins Taitt - Mary, send me your email address and I'll write out exactly how you can do it with your template...

Lily Hydrangea said...

Wow! so glad I found your site through 365 in Islip. This is a really neat blog, love your photos.

Steffe said...

wow.

D said...

yeee haw! nothing like mud ridin' in a big ol' truck you need a LADDER to get into!

brian said...

very cool! i'd like to go muddin' in that!

Joan Perry; Sidewalk Curator said...

This is what I need to get through our flooded streets when it rains during high tide.

Ming the Merciless said...

I love it! I bet it's a blast to drive that down the interstate highway and scare the little sport cars to death. :-)

Per Stromsjo said...

Jacob, I stand corrected. Didn't realize there might in fact be a rational reason behind this monstrosity.

Jacob said...

@ Per...well, I'm not sure the "need" to go riding through the Florida swamps is a "rational reason," but some folks like to do it.

I drove by this thing yesterday and it had been all cleaned up and was parked in the driveway.

Don't ask how they cleaned it.

susieofarabia said...

I'm sure they need a ladder just to get aboard! Could use a shower too!

liveberlin said...

Pretty BIG!
I had some fun by comparing with the Russian one you've commented recently :)

Jacob said...

@ liveberlin - they are similar, aren't they? The Russian one needs much bigger wheels, though!

liveberlin said...

@ Jacob - you're right, it will look better :)
