This is what I do at work during the Spring.

We chase in a decked out Black Widow edition Chevy (wish it was a raptor but its still nice).

No, I am NOT David Payne, I am his photographer.

When not chasing monster, deadly tornadoes I can be found riding around in my black 2010 Honda Pilot:

@XxGodsavemexX Wow. Thanks for sharing. That guy looks like he is way down there working. Look kind of scary cause I would think the walls would cave in. Thanks for doing what you do, cause we sure need the water to run and pipes not be busted.

@Reeds FX4 Thanks for sharing. Are you a Excel expert? I had a macro I was trying to get to work about a week ago. Had to go into the developer tab for the VBA script to try to get it to work. I was wanting to be able to run a macro to extract info from a pdf to excel.

@Troy Turple Thanks for sharing. Where do you make them at? Back in the day, Akron Ohio and the Youngstown Ohio area were huge tire manufacturers.

Why does every one of those mail trucks sound like its got a hole in the exhaust? Also what happened to the Ford based ones?

I remember seeing a slightly different bodied mail truck with the same wheels as on a base model Ranger.

That would be an FFV and it's a Ford Explorer. 2000 year model.
