  1. Here's one for you Left Coast Folks: https://www.estatesales.net/CA/Watsonville/95076/2710071 It looks like some interesting stuff, and who knows whats in all of those apparently NOS boxes on the shelves. Happy bidding. Cheers, Grog
  2. Well, then, you're set. Cheers, Grog
  3. Including the Original Post, there are only three posts in "Part1". Why is there a "Part 2"? Just wonderin'. Cheers, Grog
  4. Amen! Those who like farcebook, should enjoy farcebook, but the disease need not infect this fine forum. Krikey, we're having enough problems with the Covid/China flu! Cheers, Bob
  5. 'Tis a fine line indeed, between bravery and stupidity. Cheers, Grog
  6. While not speaking for Matt, it's always useful to be reminded that something like that shown in the photo could happen to the careless (who would become carless while the damage is being fixed in the body shop). If I had pierced the door with a forklift, I'd have blamed the local rhino; however, the damage shown is more akin to that suffered when a pair of rutting alligators take their lust beneath the nearest car. I agree, but it would have been more sickening had anyone been under the car when the jack "disconnect" occurred. I trust that didn't happen in this case. Ch
  7. Whatever one may label it, it's a very good looking car, in my opinion. Do you know whether or not the owner is an AACA Member and/or a participant in this forum? Cheers, Grog
  8. My mistake. I meant "pixelated" instead of "pixilated". Now images of pixelated pixies are whirling through the remains of my brane, resulting in just a bit of pixilation. pixelated definition: divided (an image) into pixels, typically for display or storage in a digital format. I agree that my unintentional misuse of the word "pixilated" does bring forth some interesting mental images. Cheers, Grog
  9. Ah, now a smidgeon of understanding is creeping into the remanes of my brane. Why bother with reality, when we can experience simulation while peering at video screens? Just gotta love cgi! Why bother with real actors/actresses, real cars etc. when they can all be pixilated? Basement daredevils unite! Cheers, Grog
  10. What is "Sector X", and why would they kidnap the driver? Cheers, Grog
  11. Halloween is two weeks from tomorrow; therefore, I'd consider this thread to be highly appropriate and timely, not to mention in good taste. Cheers, Grog
  12. What are you guys talking about? The video clearly shows a driver, and the speed record has apparently been verified and entered into the record books. Cheers, Grog
  13. The SSC Tuatara hit a top speed of 331 mph with a two way average of 316 mph garnering the title of the World's fastest production automobile. Here's the video: https://www.topgear.com/car-news/supercars/sscs-tuatara-fastest-car-world-331mph-top-speed I can't imagine going that fast at Bonneville, much less on a two lane public roadway! Cheers, Grog
  14. This vintage car race at this year's Goodwood Speedweek had an interesting competitor: a huge American "boat" competing against a host of more agile Euro-hotrods. The link to the video: https://www.hagerty.com/media/news/watch-a-ford-galaxie-go-from-zero-to-hero-at-goodwood-speedweek/?utm_source=SFMC&utm_medium=email&utm_content=20_October_20_Newsletter_NewDD I found the video on today's Hagerty website. Enjoy the video of classic American iron holding its own on an English road course. Cheers, Grog
