Redneck Woman!!

So as a lot of you have now heard...I am going to drive in the Heber derby! Some are a little concerned that I may have a slight panic attack. Seeing as how I have them when on leisurely Jeep rides with the Epps'! But I am way excited! This is my beautiful car. It is an 86 New Yorker. It is actually kinda cute, it even has a sun roof, which we will be covering in case I get flipped on my top! At this point we are stripping it. Apparently that means you have to take everything out. Everything really meaning seats, dash board, lights, windows, etc. It is actually kind of fun, I worked on cutting all the wires the other night. I am kind of debating what color to paint it. Obviously pink is totally the way I want to go...but then I might look to girly and people will go after me. So now I am thinking like bright purple with silver flames! You have to have the flames, or it wouldn't be redneck enough!

So this is the car from the front...those red things are the horns. Apparently that's what they look like underneath! Just looks like a souped up bike horn to me.

This is me in my "work on the derby car" clothes, working on the derby car.

And this is my face after working on the car. I was so proud to be able to show that I actually worked, and I actually got dirty.


  1. I cant wait to see you drive in this derby!

  2. Yee-haw!! From one 'redneck woman' to another, I must admit I am quite jealous! I have always wanted to derby! I guess I'll just live my dream through you! Do you know anyone with an extra ticket??? ;)

  3. You are crazy, along with my husband and all the other crazy derby people! I would never dare do that! But if I did I would definately do my car polka dotted! I tired to talk Brent into letting me do his that way, but for some reason he doesn't like that idea!

  4. haha that is so funny! i wish i was going to be there. we will be out of town. good luck!

  5. I'm totally going to be watching you!!!!! I love the derby- it's my favorite event of the summer. You better win!

  6. Sad to say- I have never attended the derby. Probably won't get to see it this year because I will be working. Good Luck!! P.S. The car is fabulous.
