Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
This week's FOR: cosmic, out of this world. WOW!Thanks for the post.Paul L. Quandt
I would be good with a time tunnel, and time tourism. But, humanity has a way of screwing things up, so maybe not...unless we could find an alternate universe to screw up.
Other than getting rear-ended while driving a Pinto, those VW vans were as dangerous as anything you could hit the Open Road in.
I've talked to a great many people who have been in wrecking yards getting parts from VW buses, the lack of blood in front end collisions says different.
I flipped one on it's side turning a corner at an intersection in San Jose CA back in the early 80's. I got and beat a ticket for unsafe speed. Going an estimated 25 MPH in a 25 MPH zone.No joke.
make that pre '73 VW vans are dangerous. in '73 they revised the front end, where the problem wasI have a '78 Westfalia like that in my yard. $6000 in it and it is no closer to running than the day I bought it.if I get it running the insurance will be twice what I pay for the vastly more practical F150.
Do you do the work yourself? The last air cooled bus I had was a '79, had pull the engine and get the valves done then had to mess with stuff a bit. I sold it and the guy called me a week later because it wouldn't start... I told him to check all the lines, he called back, he'd had an air leak.
Missing old pickups, and Cowboys...
Thank you so much for this series. Every Friday I'm reminded of what a beautiful place this planet is - and in this case, the moon as well.
I like that Rambler coming out of the wormhole!I miss my VW buses from time to time, find some place nice & just stay there. It was my daily driver and even when I wasn't camping (say on my way to work) I could pretend I'd miss the exit and just keep on going... autopilot did in fact get me to work.I had all I needed, even my mask, fins & snorkel were in back. I'd put a Jimmy Buffet CD on, tell the GPS to make the destination Key West (54 hour drive) and head down the road! Somehow I always made it to work...
Love the driving through the worm hole of space.Another great Friday road edition
That sure looks like AOC on the surfboard.Nah, couldn't be.
GT40 and a Galaxie lightweight? Ol Henry would be proud.
FOR, Marvin the Martian edition!
