26 years old, of course no body shop guy is smart enough to move those stickers to a new piece. It's a nice car and looks in good shape, my brother has some of them but he races Mazdas.
We have a guy in my truck group who keeps track of these trucks with connections to all the major wrecking recycling companies. CarFax is not to be trusted, not for a minute. The only way it makes CarFax is if there's an insurance claim, and even then they get it wrong sometimes.

I don't know if "Unique" is a unique name for auto shops, but the local one in my area is a total rip-off.
Probably no connection, but my experience with them backs up Bruce's point that there is no end to the nefarious tricks of the trade.

I don't think it's a chain but there's a shitload of repair or body and paint shops named Unique across the country.
How about a blower?

Wait...WAIT...WAIT...

Are you suggesting that people selling used cars are not the absolute, beyond a shadow of a doubt the most honest people that have ever drawn a breath?

I am shockedSHOCKED, I say.:right:

Mopar Auto-pilot, actually a speed control.

I kind of like to speed up and slow down on my own, so do not use cruise control.
I can tell when drivers around me are and think the device is responsible for a measureable percentage of accidents.

xoxoxoBruce 10-03-2019 11:11 AM

I don't use it either, I'm a control freak. :lol:

Gravdigr 10-03-2019 12:37 PM

My bucket truck had a similar control. It was a choke-like pull-out knob, to bring the engine revs up to run the pto.

I am impressed by this really well researched and written article on that early "autopilot."
From April 1958 Popular Science.

For me this is a facepalm for sure.

With the kids in my neighborhood
They always listen to their moms
They disregard civil disobedience
They'd rather do what they're told
They don't drink or fuck or fight
They sit home, and read, expand their minds
What's wrong is their parents.

I'd do a Fire Burn Out in front of his house.

Be kind when you can.

My hope is that it inspires his children to become Hot Rodders.

Home Depot parking lots attract... uh, things...

Attachment 68877

I'll bet it doesn't attract many of these.
