May be an image of 1 person and text that says 'Every male cicada in my neighborhood right now'

 

That's a '77 Chevy Malibu Classic coupe.  Is that John Cusack when he was younger?  It looks like him.

You couldn't go visit it, but you could have bid on line.  This thing sold for $ 450 CAD (or $ 371 US).  It has a diesel.

Yes, that is John Cusack in one of his break out role movies.

NYC Twentieth Century Limited running past the Studebaker plant in about 1938. Apologies to Balthazar for the colorized photograph, but I loved this.

Just saw one of those new baby Ford trucks... 🙂  I was a blue XLT in that bright blue. It really does look like the size of my old S 10. I miss that S 10- really considering one of these now....

NEWS ALERT: GM is dropping auto start/stop from full size pickups/SUVs to keep production going due to chip shortage.

Good.  Now do the same thing to all the CUVs.  While GM is at it, dump AFM too.  It is not worth the hassle of saving 1 MPG!

I cried.

Started feeling weak right after she said that she still had cancer in her lungs, spine and liver. And then when she started singing,  her beautiful voice, the tears just flowed...

I admire her courage.

It's a damn fine product. Trying to talk my son into buying one, my wife loves it. I think it s a shoe in at this point to replace my aging aveo when the Ranger is paid off.

It wouldn't fly on sedans, and prolly not so much for SUVs, but I think the truck segment really could use some bold colors... and they'd sell.

Of all the things you have posted, I like this pic the best. Thanks! This just made my Friday. 

Today makes 33 years married for the Mrs and I.

Maverick? FWD hybrid? I'd LOVE that kind of fuel economy but I'm worried it'll be dog-@ss slow to the point of annoyance trying to pass. Granted, I drive slow and am rarely passing anybody, I don't like not being able to pass on a 55mph road.

I like most reads or audiovisual accounts of dogs ...

This YouTube is from Bulgaria.  Almost 3/4 million people like the video, which begs the question as to who the 7,300 dip$h!ts who don't like it must be.  When you're thinking of this breed or that breed, and a dog like this comes along, you probably lucked out.

Cute dog, so humble for a male. Glad that the couple decided to do the right thing and take him in. Worth it, so many animals and humans in the world that just want love and to belong. Glad they took care of him and thank you for posting it. :metal:

For sure this would be good in the dog thread we started.

I've seen this sort of behavior in female and male puppies.  Given that he was hungry and abandoned, he played his cards right, so to speak.  Had he not warmed up to them, he might not have found a home.  Many feral animals are afraid of people, even after being fed by a certain few for a long time, and they don't find homes by the time winter arrives.

Yes, beautiful dog.

Hilarious take with this math.  I think most schools would be in deep $h!t if it was proffered at their Math and Science Fair/Day.

Worth a watch...

 

For her vintage, the Normandie had a much nicer bow than her British counterparts of the era.  But the superstructure and the smokestacks are a little squatty.  The way it's decked out inside shows they threw a lot of francs at building this ship.  I love it when they christened them, hurled the champagne bottle at the hull, and send the hulls sliding down to the water.  A mechanical engineer in Italy I know told me they are not willing to risk a failed launch and, for decades, they have been built and floated in dry dock / a separate basin.

The food had to have been off the charts.  French Line's last flagship - the SS France - was renowned for having the best food on the North Atlantic run.  The France wasn't in operation for that long - from 1962 to 1974.

The fate of the Normandie was sad.  I didn't know they righted it and moved it to New Jersey.  I assumed it was dismantled right at the Hudson River pier.

I may have posted one of these before.  Here's the alpha and omega of the "QE2," which served for Cunard from 1969 until 2008.

Black and white footage from a British video for its maiden voyage arrival in New York:

- - - - -

Almost 40 years later, bought by Dubai.  They threw a lot of money at this incredible welcome party.  I saw a clip where the last captain of the QE2 got teary eyed handing over the keys and paperwork to the developer-buyer in Dubai.

The economy tanked and the ship sat there for about a decade, with people from the U.K. coming up with plans and funds to bring her back home.  The economy turned around again and she made it, so to speak.  She is now open as a hotel in Dubai.
