A reader sent me these pictures of an Oklahoma resident, and 80’s Dodge pickup truck owner’s ingenious reuse of a Monster Energy Drink can. At first glance it would seem like just a piece of trash left on the dashboard, though it’s a pickup truck so you have to wonder why he wouldn’t just add […]
Looks fine to me
Its been many weeks since I posted a Pile of the Week, but I just hadn’t seen anything horrid enough lately, until now. Stock pots are sometimes “Dutch Ovens” and gin is sometimes called “Dutch Courage”, and I could not think of a more fitting name for this bike. It certainly seems as if the […]
Nearly a year and a 1/2 ago I posted this inventory of my garage/projects, Well I’m finally starting to see the end of the tunnel on 2 of them. The Honda MT125 Elsinore is within spitting distance of being “done” and the CB750 cafe racer is nearly a whole bike again. Back in August it […]
So this is for sale down the street from me, looks kind of like what Bruce Wayne would drive after being wiped out in the stock market. No expense was spared on tape and stickers, plus 2 for sale signs! Imagine the skill it took to paint the custom red wheels and get the brake […]
Really no other title does it justice. How was this thing still driving around the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles on Friday without being pulled over ticked and impounded, that’s what I want to know. That is not some sort of optical illusion, or a piece of black paper on the outside of the […]
Spotted this one in traffic. It wasn’t easy, and it was likely illegal, but I managed to get a couple of shots. Fog lights, reflectors, hood scoop, chrome edge guards, body kit, vent-o-ports, sunroof wind deflector (though who knows if there is even a sunroof), and stickers, stickers, stickers. I suppose its like plastic surgery, […]
Who knew Ford was considering a modern version of the Ranchero in 1995? Or would it be a new Durango (The Durango was a limited production Fairmont Futura based truck circa 1978) ? Naw, surely Ford, or anyone with half a brain would have figured out how to remove the rear quarter windows, instead of […]
What? You’ve never heard of it? Seriously, this is some creative usage of gaffer’s tape here. Spotted recently at the Pomona Swap Meet.
Spotted this at the hardware store. Maybe they were stocking up on sandpaper and bondo? Its hard to see in the pictures, but the doors wouldn’t close all the way either.
Seems to me that Porshce is doing better than ever. Hell, they are even selling them to people who can’t spell. I am reminded of the man in the Monty Python sketch who claims it’s the Ministry of Housign, because it was spelt like that on the van, and he’s very observant.
