And get a couple un-licenced beaters to park on the street and in the driveway.
Really show the new neighbors who the boss is.
Maybe have a little tire fire in the backyard to really roll out the welcome mat.
Congrats on getting the house all signed and sealed.

Last summer he had the frame blasted and powdercoated. We reassembled it in my garage with a bunch of cool stuff
