Bride Pride Alliance was created for that bay curious person in your family that's always wondered what is like to drive a bus at normal highway speeds, but never has because of that whole label that goes with driving a bay window (split window bus guys know what I'm talking about)
Let's face it, we have split window bus people and we have bay window people in this world, AND THEN we have The Bay Pride Alliance , where it's cool to come out of the closet and see what's on the other side of the fence without being judged by it.
We took our show on the road this past weekend and we had a very positive response from people from all walks of life at Flanders NJ

Having been openly BAY curious most of my adult life, its great to see an opportunity for others to come out of the closet and openly express their bayness without fear of persecution or prejudice from others! Manny your a great man for doing this.

I thought it started by waking up with a "roofie" headache, after a night of partying at Litchfiled, next to someone in the bed of a Bay. Unable to get out without waking the vehicle owner due to the loud sliding door.

The birth of the phrase "Once you go Bay..."

Thanks, not sure there's enough mind bleach to kill that visual.

i've seen it all too often where someone makes such a big deal about being involved in the bay community. it's all they talk about, all their friends have bays, they refer to their bay as "she" and have names for it like "edna", "maude", "harriet", they play dress up with their bay, are constantly putting "new shoes" on it, they have great taste, take fabulous trips out to wine country and so on. they make such an overstatement about theur lifestyle that it makes me wonder if they don't have a splitwindow past...like they are trying to cover up and over compensate.

bay pride alliance makes all that OK.

Well said boys, I'm glad people is getting behind this cause, literally and figuratively

Anyway, so i'm hunting around for some accessories for The bay Pride Alliance flagship vehicle, and this is the first thing that popped up.

Never seen a rear "Roo" bar. I bet that's so there's easy entry to the rear hatch.

I'm rolling down the highway messaging Manny back and forth on my way to homedepot to rent a power snake. We are discussing how great the alliance is and one of the major goals is to legalize bay marriage. So rock your stickers and spread the word- BAY PRIDE!

What's all this talk about being curious? I'm not curious at all. I loved my '67 Westy until a Pontiac Ventura drove through the rear end Shocked back in '85. Knocked the Split right out of me. Shocked I got a '72 Bay after that and a bunch of others since. I guess I'm just Bay. But you can keep your pride stickers, I'll just keep my quarter sized "steal your face" on the back window.

That rear-roo popped up on the Roo Bars forum, I'd love one of those mounting my rear.

Whats up with those Manny, did you pick them up?

Yay for Bay Marriage!
