I don't know whether to laugh or cry when I see current news photos of this "thing:"

15861467-0600-4593-b740-9818db0bc305-bas

Some of my friends helped build that back when i was working as an electrician....all I could remember thinking was....that thing is going to be an enormous white elephant when people stop buying overpriced baskets.

I really like this simple bench....I ahve about 12 other projects ahead of being able to start it though...

 

 

The speeds on the video in Kilometers per hour rather than Miles per hour....because he is Canadian. Funny, pointed, well done. I love this guys videos. 

I like riding a bicycle...but I like rail trails and being away from cars. 

E bikes seem like a disaster waiting to happen. 

 

Impressive restoration work, I love this guys work.

Cant see the video because "the uploader has not made this video available in your country".   Keep in my I live in Canada.  Very important information for later on.

To see the video, there are many ways to skin a cat...

I find out that the uploader is the Smithsonian Channel Aviation Nation

Then I find out the plane in question is the De Havilland Twin Otter.   

Motherphoquer!!!  The Smithsonian is blocking a video to Canada about a Canadian airplane!   Its not even ironic at this point.  More like moronic.   Anyway, there must be a valid reason for this...

But yeah!  The Twin Otter IS bad ass!!!

What a shame we can't get linework like that this side of, roughly, 1970. What a gorgeous phantom!!

We have a bit of a scare with your recent posts...is everything okay?


As gorgeous as all of those vintage cars are, we don't want to have you join them in the land of the departed. 

 

Still trying to get down to the yard in Mount Sterling for the B-59 thing, Have not forgotten you. 

One more for now...

Image may contain: 3 people, beard and outdoor, text that says 'believe there is one God, and she was like a single woman, and she was just dating. She went out on multiple dates with multiple prophets. That's how it happened. She said the exact same thing to different prophets. Exact same thing. But because they were men they understood different shit and wrote different shit down and that became religions. That's all religion is. It's mansplaining.'

That is lust worthy. Cactus grey is one of my favorite Ford colors.

I am very happy with mine....but it is black...

This is one of my favorite movie scenes. One can only imagine how much fun the young girls had in filming it...makes me want to be a kid again.

Love the wood work, crazy true about e-Bikes, I seen more than my share of them get nailed in Seattle. Auto drivers just do not see them coming so fast. Mustang is a true labor of love as it really was end of life IMHO. Still cool to see the amazing metal work.

Blah, that is as attractive as a Tesla, just no passion in that bland body shape to me.

WOW, The Original 427 Cobra owned by Carol Shelby underwent a full restoration and then just sold for almost $6 million dollars. Crazy.

Just saw saw a car get t boned down my street. A Ford Fusion pulled out into the main road and got nailed by a speeding Honda Civic.

Both Drivers are okay....and I have a new level of respect for the Fusion....

Very cool Video, thanks for posting it.

I am Very Happy for you that you like your new Ford. As you say to each their own. Right now the only Ford that has me excited is the Mach-E. Very much waiting for one to get to the local Ford Dealer so I can go check it out.

Crazy the amount listed at the local Ford Stores for the Mach-E but none in stock yet.

I am sure they will have quite the surplus offered soon. Wish them well on the Mach E....

And right now the only GM product that has me excited is the Cololrado ZR2.

To be honest, most of the stuff that excites me goes off road, has two wheels, or both.
