This whole crossover craze has gone a bit too far....

Not my work either but gorgeous. I know this is an automotive forum, but I am passionate about a lot of things, including furniture, inerior design, and woodworking.

I joined a genealogy site for a bit, and guess what; you can search all their archives for people named 'Pontiac Sales' and 'Cadillac Pontiac' and the like. Brings up (among other sources) high school yearbook ads of dealerships, sometimes with photos. Goodie for my Pontiac list!

The site automatically colorizes the old B&W pics, tho you can click a button to go back to B&W. Many of the colorized ones are awful- the software depends on a clear original and 'inetprets / guesses', but if the photo is too dark in areas it makes a mess of it. Great opportunity to compare the original with a guesswork version. I'll see if I can post a comparison...

Don't know how old this sign is- Ford claims trucks sales leadership since '48, but this screams '60s to me.

Another sign- both from a small-town, closed-down Chevy dealer auction within the last 10 years :

r/TIHI - Thanks, I hate missing due dates

I wish I had a dollar for every time I'd had the bad dream that I've either missed a test or was late getting to one ... only to wake up and find out that everything is peachy and it's a new day.

Dream analysts seem to ascribe meaning to all sorts of bullsh!t ... and their analyses are probably just that.

Speaking of Sesame Street.

THIS is why censorship is NOT a good idea.  And the way we politicize and weaponize words nowadays for our own hidden agendas, the truth just gets eroded away until there is no more truth...

This video was done with humour when the dude done it a decade plus ago.  But in 2021, its scary...    I laughed hard, but then I thought about it...and Im legit worried about what our future holds if we dont smarten up...

 

 

This is worse for those with a dirty mind.... 😉

What idiots they are! 🙄 Wonder if they used environmentally safe paint? If not then they are just adding to the problem. Course where was Security during this time? WOW, guess airport security will have a few heads chopped.

Saw this on the Greensboro, NC Craigslist. Its actually in Martinsville, VA but this is such a nice yet simple restore. I absolutely love everything about this truck.

There has been way, way, WAY too much Meghan Markle on internet homepages lately.  Too much.  Some run of the mill people who create this demand need to get a life.

They also needed to bicycle to the paint store & to the airport, and not ridden on any petroleum-leaching paved roads or any CO2-emitting concrete roads in doing so.

What are those bicycle tires made of?  What is the chain lubricated with?  What are the seat and handlebar grips made of?  Does it have the required reflectors?  Are they plastic?  They do not want to hear the truth.

One good thing about living in Quebec is that...the French dont give two shytes about the Royals so its like they dont even exist. 

On the English media side however...
