  2. Mid70's Chrysler Fanatic

    Epic Whoops thread.

    This reminds me of the recent case in (I think) Florida, where some flooded-out Teslas caught fire. “Get rid of that Pinto (or similarly accused vehicle model) and buy yourself a Tesla,” they said. “It’s so much safer,” they said.

    Large and In Charge

    Unlike many new cars, in which case knocking off the hideous stuff would leave you with just the engine, seats, windows, and tires!

    Can't Help Myself...Had to Buy It

    The ’67 Newport that was as much a part of my childhood as the human family members had similar “cup holders,” too. Likewise for some Dodge B-vans. Motorized demonstrators of Newton’s First Law. :wideyed:

    1960s Radio Shack Anti-theft Warning Stickers

    Ah, yes, Radio Shack. I worked at one near the close of the Eighties; while it wasn’t my favorite workplace, it was hella fun to shop there. I might print a couple of those myself. My T&C already has a dealer and state inspection decals dating from when it was a new/late-model car in South Dakota.

    Rescued Just in Time!

    What does sales code Y14–Solo Car (Sold Car?) mean? I’ve never seen that before.

    I’d love to know how much it costs. It sure looks like an awesomely useful tool.

    I hate Winter these days

    I know what alternative you mean, but I can imagine others of a geographical kind: where winters are nice, but the people aren’t. Or with hurricanes that make the residents think, “blizzards are for sissies.” Or bugs that are big enough to shoot. Not to mention obscenely expensive real estate...

    Hey, where was Robynn S. when I needed to get free of my boss from hell? Stupid buzzword.

    Tesla self-drivers recalled

    Too many computer geeks watched Knight Rider as kids.:p I’m reminded of the scene in Jurassic Park where the driverless Ford Explorer stopped at the wrong moment. Not that we have to worry about man-eating dinosaurs (and the Explorer wasn’t really autonomous), but I can foresee self-driving...

    Back On The Wagon

    If mine had a wayback seat, I’d keep it raised except when I need the floor space. It’s part of the nostalgic charm.

    Back On The Wagon

    I normally don’t go for aftermarket rims, but they really work here; the stock ones with the BSW tires looked too plain.

    1967 Limousine.

    That is neat! Interesting, though, that the front seat looks more like one from a Newport than an Imperial. I wonder how much of a Mopar following there is in the Philippines.

    C body plant to close

    Late to the discussion here; just stumbled upon the thread. That was my car’s “birthplace.” Sad. Those were the good old days when “ICE vehicle” meant only something like this:

    The weaponization of the DMV

    Google coughed up plenty of results (mainstream media, not conspiracy websites) to back this up. I was going to post some examples, but they were yucky enough that even pictures of new Toyotas could work as eyebleach. When I moved back to Nebraska from Iowa, the license office gave me my...
