I bought this "car" from my good buddy Krissy McDdivitt Von Hennek because it had a sunroof. Worst vehicle I ever owned. So bad that I contemplated leaving in the departure parking area at SF airport, with the engine running, a six pack in the front seat and the pink slip signed.

This thread is always worth checking in on!

Chaz wrote about a tractor incident:
These things don't corner like Ferraris. Serious under-steer limitations.

I don't have a picture but maybe I can paint one with words. I once was driving across the Colorado St. Bridge in Pasadena. It's an old beautiful bridge that literally curves across the Arroyo Seco. There's a kind of curvy approach to get on the bridge heading west. So I see this brand new Ferrari, still with the dealer plates parked to the side with its right fender all smashed up. There's a guy standing next to it on a mobile phone with his head in his hand and that "Oh shit" look on his face.

The story is easy to figure out. Just bought the car and going to take it out for some paces. Problem is, with a Ferrari and its ilk, if you just think about the accelerator, the thing immediately is doing 60. Bashed right into that curve. Last I checked, years later, the red marks are still on the concrete rail!

When we were hiking out of Afghanistan's Hindu Kush, almost the first locals that we met on the trails said, "Nixon whisstt!" and ran their hands across their throats. It was their way of telling us that he'd resigned, tho they couldn't know that it was our wish come true, except we REALLY DID WANT HIM IMPEACHED AND JAILED!!

Interesting,

The letters covered spell out "Dead."

There is only one area code ending in "27."

727

And it is Florida.

Would have thought it would be 666?


Edit.
Your are right.

Lord.

So why the area code?

OK its a kill with drag marks in the snow. I blew it up but couldn't discern footprints so I have to guess.

First of all, that's a lotta blood Mister. So the carcass couldn't be a rabbit or a squirrel. Bigger, a deer, a cow, a human.....

And the drag marks indicate heavy, so not a goat, dog or sheep.

Um....

So what can kill, drag a big body over the snow... and what animal tends to drag its meals anyway?

I guess no on wolves and yes on a mountain lion. But....

a lion kill isn't that Taco worthy, so despite that sense I'm going with WOLVES.

Or its one of the Goodfellas finally coming out of the Federal Witness Protection Program...
