Caption This Photo: Look at this Mess, What the Hell is Wrong With Dad?

Last night I ventured out in Brutus the wrecker with the kids to a local cruise night. While it is just a big old lumbering tow truck, I still wanted it to look its best for the local dudes and dudettes. That meant an afternoon of cleaning, some bondo action to make a rocker panel look presentable, swapping out a junk fuel filter, adjusting the points, and glugging a few gallons of gas into the tank to make sure I wouldn’t require a tow truck to recover my tow truck.

While running around to get something, I turned the the corner from the backyard to find the following sight. Both of my sons had hauled themselves up onto the front bumper and were having as serious a conversation as a three and five year old can have about a greasy, gunked up old 292ci inline six. It was funny to hear the both of them talking about the engine and the truck in general in such a serious tone. If they weren’t so young, I would have handed them some degreaser and brushes, but I am pretty sure there are laws against that at their current age.

I zapped this photo and it seems pretty ripe for caption action! What are the boys saying? Put some words in their mouth.

    Good thing there is a lot of room under here, because Mom said if Dad brings home one more piece of #$$%, he is going to live under the hood of Brutus.

    “You think it will fit?” “Yeah, Dad can make anything fit with the blue wrench”

    ya know, I think with Dad’s luck he needs to keep this in case we have to tow Buford home again!

    Quick before Dad get’s back, get me a 9/16 box wrench, a pair of water pump pliers, and some bailing wire & I’ll get this thing running like a top.

    Anyone have any idea why a message pops up saying I do not have permission to view/edit the garage I created whenever I sign in?

    1: Quick!, you distract dad, i’m gonna get some soap and water, look at all the bits he’s missed, you know he’s gonna say he let us do it!!!
    2:”Something is missing from it bro, ”
    “Whats that?”,
    “Hand marks, white paint ALWAYS looks good with hand marks…”

    An LS swap? Nope, 409 fits the truck better. No, a Duramax, even better. Your stupid, NO you are, MOM……
