Default Still the attention getter

I drive my M715 several times a month through town, do parades when there are any around here and always get waves it seems. Today I drove it to OíReillyís, got some fuel in a Gerry can for the lawn mower and a few other errands. I had the bikini top on.

It was like an attention magnet everywhere I went today. I even got a few horn honks and waves while on the road. I donít know about anyone else, but this truck always seem to get attention.

Yep, such fun. I live in a huge tourist area that is centered around an off-road park. And anytime I drive around town I get huge looks and thumbs up everywhere I go. And if I stop somewhere, it's at least 15 minutes of questions about it. Everyone is driving high dollar Jeeps and trucks or $100K pre-runners and buggies, but the old M715 steals the attention everywhere it goes.

Sounds like a fun thing to do today! Bummer, kind of a rainy day here and the top is off.

Sure does get a lot of attention when out and driving but it got more attention when it was beat-up and faded red! lol

I took mine for a drive after over a month: it's 65 out instead of 95, and my broken thumb has healed enough to deal with the steering & shifting.

I either get a thumbs-up, or a look of total confusion.
