We've been hauling ass to bring you the deals.

Head over to The Wash for the Back of the Truck Sale, where some great bargains can be found on the broken down trucks spread around the sim, now through June 15th (they are still setting up so worth checking back). And don't miss the amazingly detailed Adam skin in the new midnight mania board at FACES Studios. The owner tells me he won't keep the board for long, so time you got moving.
