Mojo Tips: How to be American in 10 steps

Instructions for how to be an American on Independence Day:

Hacksaw Jim Duggan1. Buy three pick up trucks, a Ford, a Ram and a Chevy. Apply a #99 sticker to the Ford, a #43 sticker to the Ram and a #3 sticker to the Chevy.

2. Road trip to a state that’s notorious for selling illegal Chinese fireworks. If they’re legal anyways, still drive to a state that’s notorious for selling Chinese fireworks.

3. Drive each truck through a river, preferably the great Mississippi. Creeks will also do.

4. Set up the barbecue (propane or charcoal) at the fireworks store and grill up some hot dogs. Apply yellow mustard to the hot dogs and eat.

5. Put the garbage wherever and by wherever we mean a trash receptacle.

6. Buy fireworks and drive back through the great Mississippi while holding lit sparklers out of the window because it would just look cool.

7. Park the trucks on the front lawn of a house and crack open a cold beverage. Watch people drive by.

8. Grill up some more hot dogs, give the leftovers to the dog and discuss the wrestling career of “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan.

9. Set off fireworks from the bed of each truck at night. Leave the garbage in the front yard and pick it up the next day.

10. Go to bed content because you’re officially American.

Unless, that is, the car belonged to the legendary Dale Earnhardt Sr. who is known for his black #3 Goodwrench stock car. Even though seemingly all of our Facebook fans favorite paint jobs involve an Earnhardt car, both Senior and Junior, we were able to muster up some other unique paint jobs from motorsports. Check them out below and be sure to let us know what we missed.
