myPowerBlock: Dino Byrum takes preacher for the ride of his life

myPowerBlock member Dino Byrum obviously loves to go wheelin’, and in the video below, titled “Preacher man needed a ride after performing a wedding at Disney ok,” he shows what his rig can do.

That’s a heck of a title, Dino. And if it holds true to what really happened, you certainly gave this preacher the ride of his life.
