Thunder, thunder, thunder thundercats!

Name that Car

[caption id="attachment_5010" align="alignnone" width="584"] It's the Queen (No, not J. D. Hayworth)[/caption]

Later, Liz.  Points if anyone can identify the car, beyond some ancient Rolls/Daimler/Bentley

Sudden Unintended Toyota Acceleration?

Does it count if it's a Geo, which is a disguised Toyota Corolla?
1993 Geo Prizm
no one was killed
Does it count if the sudden acceleration comes from a Nissan Sentra that gets rammed into you by the car behind it?

1993 Geo Prizm
my poor car

When Pep Boys Attack

Eyelids and sheepskins and whitewalls: Oh my [fucking god].

I feel like Bill Stech should drive this to its rusty death.  Or to the BK Lounge.

Incongruity

John McCain: penny pincher
I hate brown people but I'll buy their gas
What's wrong with this picture?  Mostly nothing, except the old man is a dumbass:
  1. cheap gas in a Bentley Continental Flying Spur.  Karma will visit you down the road

  2. cell phone at the pump?  Maybe karma will get here a little early...

Ample Parking, Day or Night...

A Quinn Martin Production

1973 Lincoln Continental Mark IV. Don't get me started on the whole back window (roll down/doesn't roll down) thing...

Spied in Phoenix

one of these. 3rd St and Palm, in the rain
Ariel Atom 3
Like a vmax that won't buck you off. 


It was likely an earlier iteration.  Another case of me without my camera.  D-ooh

Just when you thought it was safe...

Nice gills. Odd color for a shark, though.

The giant badge on the ass says "Carlsson." On further review, Carlsson just means a couple grand of plastic shit.  It has big ass gills, which excuses everything, right?

When I'm holdin' your wheel...

Not everyone agrees. (They drove the lame automatic.)

Lounge Lizards Unite

1977 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
cocaine and hookers beat Amway sales meetings every time.
Maybe the 70's weren't a complete waste of time after.  Given the choice, I would take the Disco Stu/Larry the Lounge Lizard Monte Carlo over the middle management, I'm late for that widget convention at the airport Super 8 Malibu every single time.  "Progress" can kiss my leopard print covered/Hai Karate scented  ass.

No, it's not because you could do hookers and blow (simultaneously) on that giant hood.  Well, not ENTIRELY because of that.

I need one of these for my next blast to Vegas

Vegas, baby! A new Pagani Huayra, obviously. Failing that, a "Government Approved High Speed Testing Vehicles" sticker will have to do.

Best Damn Fairmont Ever

[caption id="attachment_4683" align="alignnone" width="560"] Fit and finish is OEM (look at the hatch glass)[/caption]

[caption id="attachment_4685" align="alignnone" width="560"] Blurrovision, like a UAW assembler on a Monday after the Super Bowl[/caption]

The Best Damn Fairmont blurb doesn't technically apply.  Gingerman had one (green with a tan interior covered entirely by one sheet of shitty cheap plastic - even the seats).  Hummelberg had a newer black one with a T-roof (which acted like a torsion bar, the car was so flexy without its roof on).  Both were shitboxes compared to mine, but compared to IIs, and dorky Fairmonts, they were friggin awesome.  God, were we stupid.

From a distance

it looks like a cross from some cult megachurch like Cornerstone or CCV.  Up close, not so much.

Cop or Not

[caption id="attachment_4661" align="alignnone" width="571"] Calling this a "Fury" is heresy[/caption]

Whitewalls and wheel covers say "no, more like city engineer.  From 1988."  While this is the best Aspen (nee Valiant) ever, that is like saying a Monarch is the best Ford Falcon, or Olympia beer is the best pre-urine ever.

Why yes they're real
