When Bill and I were younger; One night after the bars closed we were a little tipsy and we took condoms and place them over door mirrors of a cop car. We loved to go cruzing around in Bill's old Ford. The back end was jacked up and the front was lowered, we had so much fun just bouncing all over town.
