The Citroën WideRide

Thursday, 25 July 2019

Assuming that the girl in the sunroof is 5′-4″ tall, it appears that the actual car width is close to 14 feet wide. Awesome.

The 1967 Buick SportWagon: “It looks more like a luxury car than a station wagon.”

Wednesday, 19 June 2019

No it doesn’t.
It looks just like a late ’60s piece of crap station wagon.
Nice try.

“The children stretch out in the back, gaze up at the stars through the sun roof and they’re off to sleep in no time.”

Yeah, sure. Carbon monoxide poisoning puts you right out… been there, done that. Then you wake up with a pounding headache. Dad’s 1972 Ford Country Squire did it to me.

Years later it happened again. Danny Rat and I were hiding in the trunk of Raul’s Buick to sneak into the local drive-in theater without paying. We paid in brain pain that night, and I never did it again.

TRUE.

Max Mueller II, mayor of Idyllwild, California, is a real SOB and everyone knows it.

Mom ordered a t-shirt from China for her 3-year-old and it came with a surprise bonus feature.

And it’s all supposed to be spontaneous. Yeah, right.

Un-Aborted Pro-Abortion woman tries to make the argument:
Let’s eliminate suffering by killing those who MIGHT suffer.” Pheew. Even Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was against abortion as a contraceptive (except for blacks). The entire premise is false.

Saturday Matinee – Single-Handed Pure Devotion, The Dixie Hummingbirds, The Allman Brothers & Kris Kristofferson w/ Johnny Cash

Saturday, 9 March 2019

[via Madam Jujujive]

Miz J. emailed, tells me she likes gospel, blues and old country, so here we go.

The Dixie Hummingbirds (1928-present) are a gospel rhythm and blues vocal group who influenced many recording artists. Even Paul Simon covered them.

What’s the greatest blues song ever? That’s a tough choice because the blues spans so many decades. I’m gonna go with this.

T-Bone Walker recorded “Stormy Monday” in 1947, but The Allman Brothers Band did a great cover 33 years later. I’ve always loved that chord turnaround.

(And THIS is one of the prettiest songs they ever recorded.)

Gospel – Check.
Blues – Check.
That leaves “old country.” Well, it’s not that old, but it counts.

Have a great weekend, folks. More stuff tomorrow.

1960 Pontiac Sled

Monday, 14 January 2019

This wide ride fit in very few parking spaces, and on the road the margin of error was slim. That’s why you see so few of them anymore. Looks like the snow pack is up to the railing at this resort, so the snowbunny on the left must be about 9-feet tall, too.

1949 Amusement Park Ride Advert

Wednesday, 26 September 2018

The Tilt-A-Whirl was the only ride I ever puked on. I was about 6 years old at the time, and it happened here.

See that blurb at the bottom left? The Runyon Cancer Fund is a charity founded in 1946 (named after famed newsman and writer Damon Runyon) and is still in operation over 70 years later.
