dirty, dirty d., Dustin, whatever you call him, you surely know when he is around. i actually met Dustin before i even realized who he was. walk with me.. as Tony would say, i used to drive a nopi ride. the time came to sell it, and one day when i was working out at the pallet mill, this guy wanted to take a look at the car when i was on my break. he shows up, and i’m thinking sucker. for sure this guy will take this off my hands so i can buy another one of something like 8 cars. he takes me for a test drive and puts the car to work. hard. he drove it harder than i’d ever driven it, giving it hell and squealing tires. “won’t be my car” i’m thinking. well, of course i never heard from him about the car, it just wasn’t my luck. few years later at the Statesboro hospital trails, Cory Pratt, wow that name, tells me that he is the same guy from the car deal! (at this point he’s driving the infamous Firebird. just imagine the damage if he had bought that slammed acura)
we have been riding on and off since, off being when dirty would be out a few months with one of his knee injuries (one cause by Cory..possibly initiated by a drunken roommate “whose is bigger” fight between the two of us.jerks haha! and sorry.) Dustin is always a good influence to ride with , because he will push you to try things, which may or may not be in your best interest, but entertaining at least. he just got to get back on the horse again after another knee repair, and built up the sweet ass United you see above. there are so many good stories to mention and they are all swarming around my head, but i’ll end the “jaw-jackin” (thanks dirty’s stepdad) and let you check a few more pics and his Q&A for resident. -maybe someone can submit a Dirty D. story or two soon!
