But just as importantly, underneath that mountan of computer code is a true car guy Brian feels completely at home turning wrenches he has been working on his own cars for ears, he owns several classics, and he even works with his local church group to fix ether peoples' vehicles. He's the kind of guy that you can tell has a mountainous stack of old car magazines lying around - it is obvious by the sheer amount of mainstream and obscure automotive factoids coming out of his mouth. Add a strong work ethic and talent to that automotive passion, and you understand why we are so pleased to have him.

This build is a bit different than many of our other projects in that it's going to sort of be a show truck. Yes, we know that is blasphemy around here at 4-Wheel & Off-Road, where hard-core tech and battered bodies rule the roost, but that's why this truck was named Project Black Sheep, because it doesn't really fit into our flock. Now don't throw away this issue just yet, because if you keep reading you'll find that even a flashy 4WOR truck still has the guts to go wheeling. It's just that this one's not gonna get battered upuntil it's done visiting some shows. It's kind of like mom telling you that you can't get your good clothes dirty until after church.
While all three factors can certainly take the wind out of a happy couple's sails, none of these problems presented themselves to Mr. and Mrs. Chris Grantham during their planning stages. The speed bump that they did run into came in the form of a '90 Toyota pickup. Chris had already started cutting it up but was forced to set it aside due to life's many time-eaters. Luckily, Chris was about to wed a woman who supports his hobbies and who wholeheartedly encouraged him to finish the build so they could cruise to the church in style.

This month's Raza Report segment in the August Lowrider issue takes us through a pilgrimage that journeys its way up an old footpath worn in the soil for decades by millions of feet a path that would still be visible, if not for the paved road it sits on today. This road stretches for hundreds of miles to the destination that is El Santuario De Chimayo . It's a small adobe church in the northern part of New Mexico that is frequently visited by tens of thousands in prayer each year. The Holy place was built on sacred grounds where a Crucifix was once buried. The first worshipers to have visited the area were Native Americans, Spaniards, and Mexicans, and now there are worshipers visiting from all nations. These visitors are greeted by works of Hispanic art and several Santos and religious Frescoes as well. This church is believed to have spiritual and physical healing powers, which are sought after by the many religious believers who make this pilgrimage in the hope of curing what ails...
How accurate these numbers are will depend on how well-used your Jeep is. If your Jeep has been used for nothing but hauling unabridged dictionaries and your springs are sagging, you might want to err on the smaller side. If your Jeep is driven by Grandma to church, you can probably ride the high side of the chart for the segment you fit into.

Evidently, the sound of the exhaust was not on the don't list, and, during gentle driving, the constant burbling, snarling, and crackling of exhaust back pressure remind drivers what's waiting for them when their right foot drops rocket-booster levels of thrust accompanied by sound effects that could make your favourite church-going grandmother drop an F-bomb even before the supercharger goes to work.

Yet there was a darker hour, attributed to an avocado-hued 1963 Beetle I bought on behalf of my sister Celeste. I put it in my own name and spent months as sole custodian. I shan't forget the day I purchased it from the two very friendly ladies in Sea Point. Or, after the signing and hand shakes, the drive home through a downpour, while watching the road passing my ever wetter shoes through the holes in the floorboard. Still, nothing could wipe the smile off my face as I putted home, and it felt equally good in the ensuing months as I ran errands for my mom, including the odd trip to the church bazaar. I often took mates for drives into town too, blissfully unaware of the true meaning of the large 'rainbow sticker' 011 the engine lid. Until one day, many years after I'd sold it on, it was explained to me. Excruciating flashback followed think the ending to The Usual Suspects with a good measure of The Crying Game. What a merry motorist I must have seemed.
Our motto is 'Making school a better place' and we focus on benefiting children up to the age of 18 through the rehabilitation of schools, school transport, desks and sport infrastructure as well as arranging Friday night film shows in school, community and church halls in rural areas, sometimes using wind power to generate the electric current for the projection equipment, he said. Hino SA Vice-President, Dr Casper Kruger, said that this project dovetailed very well with other CSI programmes of Hino and Toyota, where the focus has always been on education and health.

Back in 1984, Bishop Howard Hubbard had no idea I'd already sworn an oath to another institution when he added me and a couple dozen of my classmates to his flock, during a standard-issue Roman Catholic Confirmation ceremony at St. Patrick's Church. And, for reasons related to a speedy excommunication and charges of blasphemy, heresy or worse, I wasn't telling.

In New Orleans, the pair boarded a freighter bound for Le Havre, France, except the captain didn't tell us we were going to Central America first, he recalls. That took three months. I was the galley boy. But once I got to Europe, I found work doing laundry for U.S. soldiers in Dachau. It was fun. The soldiers gave me free beer. Then I drove to Nice and found a church with a sign that said, 'Free Cookies' wow, a free meal, so in I went. The priest hired me as a handyman, then one day told me I was riding my motorcycle too fast and drinking too much. He said, 'You might want to move on.'
In late 1932 or early 1933 a farmer's wife from somewhere in the Geelong region wrote a letter to Hubert French, managing director of Ford Australia whose headquarters were in Geelong. The gist of what she wrote was Why don't you build people like us a vehicle to go to church in on Sunday, and which can carry our pigs to market on Monday
