55 years ago today, Lee Iacocca and his team introduced a car that would become an indelible icon of 20th Century Americana and usher in an ever-increasing proposition of (horse)power to the people. Happy birthday to all the ponies out there (especially mine).
Had a new cam made for my F100. I love the”instructions” that came on the stickers.
I lost a piece of my heart last night. Olive was a Very Good Girl and my shadow for the last 13+ years. She rescued us when she was just a year old and I’ve never loved a non-human animal more in my life. I can’t tell the kids yet because this is finals week and I don’t want to distract them. Took the day off so I…
I love Wish lol
My son was grabbing some aerial shots earlier and sent me this. The world might be crazy but, when it comes right down to it, life is good, Oppo. Hope y’all enjoy the weekend.
So I went ahead and did a thing. Found a new sticker vendor to try and these actually turned out pretty nice! Escort RS added for scale. The white on these is actually clear! This is a big pet peeve of mine so I was sure to clarify before I ordered.
Mustangs mean a lot to me. I think it started with my Mustang peddle car that I had as a young child in the late sixties. It was a the kind of nearly indestructible, sharp-edged, all metal peddle car toys that could no longer exist for kids today for many reasons. Liability, mainly. In my little kid speak I called it…
I swear I’d do it if I had the driveway space but I’m looking for something a bit ... smaller.
I need y’all’s oppopinions about a vehicle purchase for my aged in-laws.
Henceforth, we shall refer to the power output of our motorcars in units of Llamathrust.
CA “black plates” ordered for Clifford (‘67 F-100) and the F31 (name still TBD). The truck demands them; it was a moral imperative. I didn’t want to be one of “those guys” who put black legacy plates on a modern car but ... I get it now. The white plates look horrible on the BMW. I officially apologize to everyone…
The other shoe has dropped, Oppo. First acquisition was the fun one and yesterday I upped my JalopCred slightly with this new (to me) diesel wagon. However it’s not brown and they just don’t make these in manual (which is probs good for me and my 124-mile round trip commute). The beloved Fusion, now sidelined because…
Finally Oppo, at long last ... after 14 generations on this soil I have achieved Real American(TM) status! Meet Clifford, a ‘67 F-100 rockin’ a slightly breathed on 302, a single-speed transfer case and a four-speed with a granny. 4x4xSimple. I am so fucking giddy you guys.
I’m narrowing things down. I’m thinking I should get something like this:
Morning Oppo! I have news ...
The Suburban is now on its 11th(!) generation. This makes me wonder whether any vehicle model in the world beats it. Whaddaya got, Oppo?
