Sometimes people have interesting stories about their trucks, sometimes they don't. There's nothing wrong with that, not everybody drops their truck from jackstands or catches their interior on fire. When we called Anthony Baird out of Spring, Texas, he said the most interesting things that have ever happened to him involved dragging. It turns out, if you drag the snot out of your truck, the cops may let you go if the nearby ditch is on fire.

The point of the story being, even though sparking the median on fire will get you out of trouble, we think it might be a little dangerous. Anthony's truck isn't all go; it also has some show power. The truck has some awesome accessories, such as Street Scene mirrors and front bumper. One of the most unnoticed, yet awesome, mods on this truck is the molded rear bumper. We've seen people rock bumpers before, but this was a new kick to us.

Anthony works in the oil fields and he does all he can to keep his truck looking clean and on the road. But when it comes to dragging, "me and the guys from Erratic know a thing or two about that, just watch the newest Crime Pays video," said Anthony. "You can see my truck all over that video." It's not that he's a camera hog, he just loves to drag. What's wrong with a little dragging, as long as you're being safe? We're not sure if igniting the median falls into this category of safe, but Anthony still gets the thumbs-up for doing his thing.
