It's not really a fight.  Proper documentation and they will pay.

Gotta Love Main that allows any customized vanity plate on your car and only revokes it if people complain. There is an Instagram page dedicated to all the wonderful fucked up plates.

There is also a Facebook page too.

Very cool story of 50 trucks we never see any more.

Gotta love this Jeep FC-150 pickup.

I also think a small 2 person mini pickup like this Morris Minor Pickup have a place in todays society.

Love that the GMC Syclone is on the list, GMC really needs to build another modern day Syclone truck.

The incredible story of America's lost 1939 Antarctic Snow Cruiser

In 1939 America built a $250,000 snow cruiser ($2.8 million today) to conquer the Antarctic and claim it as America. Due to numerous issues and WWII, this got left there and has since disappeared.  It carried 2,500 gallons of diesel and 1,000 gallons of aviation fuel for the seaplane that sat on top.

Full Story can be read here: https://www.autoclassics.com/posts/reviews/1939-antarctic-snow-cruiser

I was unaware, as apparently most people are, that the $2 bill is still in production (since it's reissue in '76).
THought this related tidbit was intertesting :
"
A documented case of using two-dollar bills to send a message to a community is the case of Geneva Steel and the communities in the surrounding Utah County. In 1989, Geneva Steel paid its employee bonuses in $2 bills. When the bills began to appear in different places, people recognized the importance of the company to the local economy"

Love me some 389!

 

Great satisfaction.  A real reward when it fires up and you hear it run.

I've had maybe a dozen in circulation come to me in change over the last 30+ years.  Pretty uncommon to see one.

Talk about an ultimate Toyota Commercial for the Failure of a Range Rover.

Seems the Range Rover got stuck in flood waters and the Toyota Hilux just enters in and move on through with no thought to the Range Rover.

:roflmao: 11yr old Dunks a New Reporter. I love it.
