Let the good times roll. At approximately 10 to 15 miles per hour.
It's not quite finalized yet, but it's looking like my truck will be pulling one of the Mardi Gras floats this parade season. Used to, the car dealerships donated a fleet of new trucks for the task, something I always felt was wasteful but I suppose it is good marketing as those things are all but rolling billboards for that dealership. All that came to a screeching halt with the floundering economy, and this year there's a dire need for big, powerful trucks to pull those massive floats. They don't get much badder or much tougher than my heavy duty 454 race-modified big block, so I think I'm in.
Just need to confirm with some people, but they should be glad to have me. And as my truck's all but a local landmark in and of itself, it's going to be kind of cool seeing the Beast roll through Downtown amidst all the drunken revelry while coeds flash me for moon pies and cheap plastic beads. Not to mention I'd likely get an invite to that Order's private ball for helping them out, which is a whole 'nother kind of fun altogether.
