I am temporarily in school in Drumright Ok and drove the IS here from NC (big mistake, should have flown/anything other than subject my car to this punishment). Well Drumright is the 6th circle of hell so this afternoon after class I took off to find Route 66 and take some photos to help kill my boredom.

The local cops came of course when I was in an alley (not used to that here I guess) which is my second run in with the local PD in 4 days when I haven't been pulled over in 11 years prior to this. I think I will stick to 50k minimum population from now on lol, they don't like out of state plates, sleeve tattoos, or earrings in small country towns where they know everyone. I think they believe I am here to bring Heroin and Cocaine to their children instead of go to school lol.

Either way, here are a few of the better pics, enjoy or talk smack about my current surroundings (I know I do lol).

The cops showed up while I was in the alley (these people are a bit strange) and made me leave because it "just ain't normal" and wouldn't let me take a pic of the cop car flashing behind me or he was keeping my cam.

I got the red x's. Sounds stupid you have a nice car and a cop busts you cause your taking pics. He probably drove a taurus or something.

I put it on about 2 months ago. It's a Tanabe Super Medallion. I will probably change it again later on, I am hung up on a Greddy Ti-C but I want to get back to my normal level of income prior to buying anymore parts. 2 more months :)

Nice pix! I have a full sleeve on my right arm and I'm workin on my left. I've found it doesn't matter where you go people are close minded and don't understand.

Yep, I completely agree. Usually after looking at it for a second, opinions change. It's all black/grey because I don't hold color worth a damn but the entire arm is a memorial to all my friends I lost in Iraq and other areas in the last couple of years.

I think because of the styling and coloring, people assume it's a prison tatt.

I am pretty sure you're right man, it's just the small towns. The larger normal towns here are nice.

I am just in the armpit of Ok.

It's fear...The cops in small towns are affraid of strange new things...
...and now that Toyota is in Nascar , that's all new to them...they don't know what to do if a Ford isn't on the front page of the local paper...:bigSmile:

Maybe if you put some TRD emblems on your car, the cops will ease up...?

bwahahahahahahahaha

I was sitting in a steak house monday night when it came on TV that Tony Stewart won a race or something (I don't follow nascar). There was a round of groans and bitches I didn't understand until I noticed that TS in fact drives one of the new yotas lol.

Definitely, I would like to meet some fellow car enthusiasts in the area. Most of what I see are rusty muscle cars and riced out hondas. Very few clean (ok, scratch that, where I am ONE clean) car from any brand.
