Eh, give the blind a chance.

Olds would've built a ute/cruck that looked as good as the Ranchero.

Damn, That is one of those all too rare Top Fuel sh*tsters.

Backstory, Originally designed to be debuted in one of the early to mid-70's Daytona 500's to combat the winged Plymouths and Dodges of the day, sadly it couldn't make it through the turn 4 tunnel and thus failed tech inspection. What a rare find TV 2MO!! . Merry Christmas. Todd

Yeah, It's a Hybrid...It burns gas and tires.

No matter how good she looks, somebody, somewhere, is tired of her sh*t.

Beauty is skin deep, ugliness goes clear to the bone.

I saw a couple guys who took a rusted, really rusted plymouth scamp, took the muffler off, Joe'd (sawzalled) the roof off, put a plywood "superbird" wing on it, and entered it in the Car Craft summernationals in Buffalo back around 1990. That slant-six doing neutral drops and spinning it's studded snows was worth the price of admission! I may still have pix...

Posted your photos in this thread on the VW forum. It's all about ridiculous cars. Sometimes VW enthusiast shenanigans show up though, and then there are a few that shouldn't be in the thread

I spent a couple weeks at Thomasbuilt Busses doing some IT work about 10 years ago.  It was...interesting.

The Highpoint area is really nice.
