Any idea if I can get away with only increasing the melanin content of her hood & booty?

Figure most folxonly see other vehicles end-on.

Good advice. Since I plan to vacate the NE w/in 2 weeks, guess I got an unwanted mod to make happen.

And isn't part of Skoolie allure flying (s)low, & below the radar?!

Surely don't wanna be trailing clouds if chaff behind me.

Am I paranoid?
You betcha!
But am I being paranoid enough..?

It goes on, but the best advice is to be inconspicuous
Golly gee whilikers! You don't mean to tell me that law-enforcement officers are as ignorant of the law as we the unwashed? Say 'taint so...

Well, if I get those modulators, I'll just keep that fed's statute with my copy of The Bill of Rights.

Think you guys just gave me my signature line,

"Fly slow, stay low."

Thanx, guys!!!

You'll remember this when you are stopped by a local Sheriff's Deputy, on a back lane in Alabama, at 2.00 am.

Sounds good. Yanno, I have been known to imbibe in a wobbly-pop, or few...
To answer the question of how low I can go- I suspect I could easily go down on Miss Limbo.
Or would that be, Limba..?
Not Limbaugh, even if he wasn't all corpsified!

Hiya Christopher,
Looks like I'll be passing thru OH in several days' time.
Look to your inbox, please.
