anyone with pointers on how to get rid of skunk smell from a car, let me know.  grrrrrrr .  was not me who hit the skunk remains

Wile Tomato juice works for animals, I have heard from others that Freebreeze works well for skunk in an auto.

I have always used the following for external:

Skunk ordor is hard but not impossible to get rid of.
  1. Measure and pour the distilled vinegar into a garden sprayer.
  2. Add liquid dish detergent to the garden sprayer. ...
  3. With the garden sprayer, begin spraying underneath and all around the car
  4. Repeat one hour later if the smell remains.

There is also the Amazon option, never used any of them but lots of spays / solutions.

Like a Blacker than Black auto? BMW has painted their X6 in the blackest black available. The auto only returns 1% reflection.

Yes LiDar can still see it.

2002 Ford Cougar rebuilt as a Replica 2012 Bugyati for $125,000

https://orlando.craigslist.org/cto/d/winter-springs-2012-bugatti-veyron/6967909699.html

Still has the original Cougar V6

It's not going to fool anyone, but it's a pretty cool conversion.

I will take one of those vintage Mustangs, and a nice vintage F series to go with it.

I wouldn't, i could buy a decent used Mustang GT or Miata for that. Kit cars always seem to have tons of issues.

I think it is a wash between a kit car built and a rusty used mustang.

I want the mustang fresh off of the assembly line like it would be in the advert. heck, give me a Falcon Sprint convertible for  a weekend car.

Did they do much leasing back then? I always had the impression that was something that gained popularity in the 80s

Leasing cars does not explode until the 1980s because subsidized leases do not become commonplace until then.

In other news, seems a number of key states have officially fallen into a recession from mid-west to east coast. 

Pennsylvania alone shed 8,000 manufacturing jobs this year.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2019-09-09/a-manufacturing-recession-could-cost-trump-a-second-term

Seems a wide diverse group of manufactures from auto company suppliers to farm equipment manifactures are in contraction.

If the strike lasts more than a week, it could send Michigan into recession.

Very true on that and this just hit that tends to reinforce the recession I believe we are heading into: https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/17/business/overnight-lending-rate-spike-ny-fed/index.html

I openly cheer anachronisms. I could only hope this picture was taken in like 1980 (I have no idea but probably in the 1940s).
