Saw a really sweet dump truck in town the other day. About a 58 Chevy. It was in really good survivor shape. Maybe a an older restoration.

Gravdigr 05-03-2018 03:06 PM

"A really sweet dump truck"?

...the hell?

Sam Barris was a very talented customizer in the 1940's through 1960's southern CA scene.
His brother George was a self aggrandizing attention whore who dragged Sam into profitable but ridiculous crap.

Sherman, I'm going to the bank and will be back in 15 minutes.
While I'm gone warm up the wayback machine... oh, and attach the trailer to it.

Gravdigr 05-26-2018 04:49 PM

I'll take the 63 Galaxie, sight unseen.

Even better if'n it has one o' them bubbly hoods.

1966 Mustangs by Barris...

Gravdigr 05-31-2018 03:55 PM

I hope someone kicked George right in the nuts for that.

fargon 05-31-2018 04:06 PM

I know trying to make a ford look like a Pontiac.

Gravdigr 05-31-2018 04:09 PM

Gonna take more than a split grille and some tail lights...

And he ruined two Mustangs in the process.

Gravdigr 05-31-2018 04:11 PM

My masonry instructor had several Mustangs, one was a pink convertible Shelby GT350.

It was marked up like a Shelby anyway.

Those pink Shelbys were special promotions in certain areas.

What motorcycle is that? And the truck under it?

Griff 06-09-2018 11:19 AM

Maybe Hogan’s Heroes and Jurassic Park?

Happy Monkey 06-09-2018 11:49 AM

Jurassic Park is the green one on top. Though there have been several Jurassic Park movies.

fargon 06-09-2018 12:18 PM

The truck underneath is a gas powered Jeep from Jurassic Park, the original movie.

It is a Ural, a Russian made copy of a '37 BMW 750 w/sidecar.

This is a great story. I love this stuff.

Man accidentally buys back his long-lost 1966 Ford Mustang

Attachment 64083


...he pulled out a Ziploc baggie that contained nuts and bolts and a note that read, “Bolts for driver’s door.” He laughed and showed the piece of paper to Dana [not ours:)], saying it looked a lot like his handwriting. Then he opened another baggie, inspected another note, and decided, “That IS my handwriting.”

BigV 06-23-2018 05:52 PM

Apparently, the man has "a type".

Even blew the airbag...

Pamela 06-29-2018 10:58 AM

I put in my old clunker pickup for a new master cylinder once. It would stop, eventually, but you had to plan ahead. The shop put a big sign on the steering wheel that read "Bad Brakes", just so the mechanic would be forewarned. Bet that didn't happen here!

Gravdigr 06-29-2018 01:12 PM

Do airbags still work only above 35 mph?

xoxoxoBruce 06-29-2018 05:56 PM

No, the airbag is supposed to trigger at a force/deceleration rate, of hitting a solid barrier straight on at 14 mph. But the speed varies greatly with the angle of impact and the ability of the crush zones to absorb energy.

Thank you for posting that piece.

I knew it before watching, but, Mickey Thompson was awesome.

xoxoxoBruce 07-03-2018 04:04 PM

Yeah, I knew it too, but didn't have a clue how far his influence reached.

I happened on a short video clip by someone passing that truck load of movie cars and grabbed a screen shot of the rear.
Ain't from around these here parts, but it's a left hand drive country.

BigV 07-04-2018 10:31 PM

saw a car carrier mostly upside down in the median last weekend with a copy of Herbie the Love Bug nearby. Sad.

For the accuracy challenged...

Gravdigr 07-09-2018 11:23 AM

That's pretty funneh.

xoxoxoBruce 07-12-2018 11:40 PM

I imagine the restoration took a couple years and a chunck of time after that before he took the money.
The dumbshit could have paid the tax and doubled or tripled the remainder.

I was watching an episode of Antiques Road Trip from SW Scotland a little earlier when one of the presenters, Charles Hanson, took a break from buying overpriced tat and selling overpriced antiques to visit the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service Heritage Trust.

He was shown an Austin Gipsy fire engine which had spent part of its working life on the Isle of Arran.


At an unknown date (possibly 1965) it was stationed at Lochranza on the Isle of Arran in the garage of the Lochranza Hotel.
Attachment 64337 Attachment 64336

The Austin Gipsy was essentially a poor man's Land Rover having steel instead of aluminium bodywork and never sold in any great number.

After his visit Hanson was allowed to drive the vehicle much to the amusement and horror of his guide.

If I say that Charles Hanson is to driving what Liberace was to cage fighting, I think you'll get the picture.

That Austin Gipsy looks perfect for narrow mountain roads and off road.

Over here Jeeps are used a lot by companies that have to go into buildings like factories and warehouses where aisles are narrow.

Gravdigr 07-17-2018 04:04 PM

I think the Gipsy looks an awful lot like the Jeep.
