Most people call me a redneck because I like NASCAR, Budweiser, drinking in a garage and work construction in the summers. I go to University and proudly wear my NASCAR coat around campus, and if people want to call me a redneck, fine by me.

Here's a few more:
- Your a/c has a three point hitch and a PTO
- Cage in the back of the a/c for hunting dogs
- All the seats in the a/c came from the Bass Pro Shops catalog
- You've converted the toolbox on one nacelle into a cooler and the other into a live bait well
- You bought a twin so you could strap a deer on the hood without worrying about the exhaust or prop messing it up
- NRA sticker in the window of your a/c
Here are a few from L-188 from an earlier thread:
Quote: You lay a blue tarp in the front yard so everybody that flies over in an airplane will think you have a pool.
Edit: Thought of one for you guys here......If your boat and airplane are powered by the same engine...you might be a redneck.
And yes, I'm the one who pointed out that the first boat I got to drive when I was a kid had a Continental(not Ford/Lincoln) engine.

Quoting BHMBAGLOCK (Reply 7): And yes, I'm the one who pointed out that the first boat I got to drive when I was a kid had a Continental(not Ford/Lincoln) engine.
A lot of old O-235's end up there.
Ray Stevens did a song a few years back called, "Southern Air" my favorite line is the pilot, (Jerry Clower) getting on the PA system and tellng the passengers, "Now yall don't worry about that landing none....my brother put on a new set of them new Goodyear Mudripper tires!!!!"
Always picture a supercub with lugged tundra tires when I remember that phrase.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
This was a relatively new one actually. Some druggies crash-landed a Cessna on his property in the Everglades so my uncle just liberated the engine and put a fixed pitch prop on it then mounted it to the back of an airboat. Faster than it needed to be for sure.
