Ive heard about the "beats" stereo systems, are they as good as the advertise?

So , um yea , just got the invite to be a driver in americas favorite reality show.
Lizard Lick Towing . Better get my bubba teeth out .

They called the shop today needing a tire . Long story short bobby '' Got mad ''
and '' Threw " the tire and wheel at one of the other actors '' part of show '' , well he chunked it a bit too hard and busted the dudes knee out .

Ronnie buys his tires from pops and Amy is a cousin though not really claimed And dad has helped repo the big trucks and helped out a dozen other times as well as them filming at the quarry .
So the producers want me and pops to come out Wed to drive and maybe some other '' real life stuff ''
Embarrased myself on the news before in a sit down interview , not sure if im ready to do it on national tv
Work on boats and make bank while dad shows his ass or not make money and show my ass on national tv ?

Maybe I can do explosions and gun fire , maybe get my FTF sticker in the shot ? Sure the mods would love that hehehehehe

The thing about trucks I dont understand is why my 40 yr. old IH pickup gets the same mileage as a new truck...
Then I see commercials for new cars getting 30 mpg, well my '84 Rampage does too..
Also I see auto companys all proud for offering a 100,000 mile warranty, like its something new; Well guess what, the warranty card in my Scout says its good for 100,000...

Yes. They are. You can tell the difference between them and the premium alpine, and I'm far from being an audiophile. I like just being able to hear my music clearly, but the beats system is baddazz.

Hell, I've got hearing loss, and I can tell the difference.

Does it have MDS? If so, train yourself to keep it in eco mode. I average 23-25 every time I get behind the wheel of one.

I've also been accused of driving like a grandpa quite often.

My favorite was the kid that thought hemis were a new thing... Then couldn't even tell me what a hemi was. I met some real intelligent people working for auto zone. Honestly, if you don't know what you're talking about that's fine but don't act like you do and argue with me about it....

I know. they're combustion chambers are cylindrical not hemispherical.
I'd actually really like to pull the heads off one... I'd also like to pull apart a rotary one day...
