Well..................Lets leave the Death Race 2000 point system out this year. Maybe it could be worked in for the next one.

I am a little disappointed, but will agree.  Katie would probably get upset with me for welding spikes onto the front of the Accord anyway (it gets the best gas mileage).

It would be a great B-Fest Cannonball Run style. We would all cross the country from New York to Los Angeles stopping at designated Drive-Ins each night for concession stand food and B-movie conversation during double features. We would have it during the Summers and it would end with a B-Fest in some hotel in Hollywood, California. We could even have points for those who stop at Captain Kirks hometown and other B-movie locations. With CB's in hand all the way we would talk movies and use or create B-movie dialogue during the trip. It would be filmed so we could sell the DVD and pay for the B-Fest location each year and bring recognition to badmovies.org.

It would have to be something that could be accomplished in 7-10 days so we could all get back home and work.

We could have it so that members who didn't want or couldn't go all the way to New York to start could meet the tour at half way points like St. Louis or anywhere along the way. There could be car pools also for those who didn't want to run their vehicles into the ground. With the cell phone we could help those who break down when they are out of CB reach. Looks like we've go us a convoy................

Ever since moving to a major metropolitan area I've discovered that owning and maintaining a car here is far outside my budget constraints, to the closest I get to driving is sitting in the front section of the R, N or D lines.

The last car I drove was by far my favorite of the 4 or 5 I'd owned till that point. It was a 1990 Chevy Caprice Classic. It was a tank of a car, it rode so smooth that going 80 down the highway was like floating along at 40. I wound up getting pulled over several times because I was paying more attention to my comfort than I was to the speed-o-meter. It was spacious, in perfect condition, had an arctic blasting AC unit and a friend installed a brand new cd player into it for me after I bought it. I only paid $500 for the car from a friend of my father. One of the hardest things to do in moving to Brooklyn was giving up that car. Sure, it wasn't good on gas, but this was before it cost a day's pay to fill your tank, so it wasn't all that bad. Besides, my friends all loved riding in it so much that thet were always happy to put up gas money for the privilege.

Dear Ash and RC --
Yes, that is in fact the very set of standing stones, though we were working from a photograph that I took, so a quite different angle -- much more emphasis on the central stone. 
Callanish is a lovely place -- I recommend that everyone goes there --
"forced to sell" . . . ah, well . . . I'm currently out of work, so everything not tied down gets sold off, except the cats & certain memorabilia that I still intend to leave to my niece or nephew.

Well, I have the ultimate in transportation.  They're economical, doesn't need any fuel, and I don't even need a license.  They're called the left foot and the right foot Smile.  And I also have access with a special card, and with one swipe, I have access with any bus and, especially, trains (specifically, the D, B, and W trains).  Seriously, That is my job working in transit.  So Tomb, if by chance you're waiting for a D train ( I assume in Brooklyn), look in the middle of the train for a fat black guy with a goatee wearing two pairs of glasses (one are safety glasses) and wearing a METS cap sticking his head out of a window.  But do so before the 27th of May, I'll be on the A and C trains after that.

Hahaha, awesome BA! Usually I stick with the R and N, but I'll make it a point to grab the D more often till... well... next week I guess. The only time I grab the A and C are when I'm heading to Port Authority, but I'll see if I can't spot you hangin' out the window when I do!  Thumbup

Though I don't participate currently (rural community), I'm a big fan of public transportation.  When I lived in Denver, I took the express bus to work; since my job involved a lot of paperwork (grading), I got a lot done on the ride.  It sure was nice to not have to fight traffic, and a bus pass was cheaper than gas, too (even back in the mid 1990's).

Here's to ya'll.   Cheers

You've got me beat by one year for age, but not by mileage.  My '86 Ranger has about 350,000 or so.

Where's that brick.......

Now that I'm back again, let's see if I kill this thread.

Until a few months ago I was driving a blue 1987 Escort station wagon, until the head gasket blew or the head crack, best we can tell. Coolant in the fuel anyway, and too expensive to fix for what it cost me. A beater, but I need it when my Camero gave me trouble a while back.

My best friend loaned me his 1986 F-150 XLT while hunting up a new car. Rugged truck big V-8 motor, not my kind of vehicle at all, don't usually need a big truck to haul stuff, but I got used to all the power. Lousy on gas, but it was fun for a little while.

I now drive a white 1994 Jeep Cherokee Sport with the 4.0 liter straight six motor. The body is a little rough, a few dings and scratches, missing a piece of trim on the side (haven't found one yet but we're looking), needs a better radio. I've always wanted a Cherokee, finally got one. There's still so many on the road I took it as a good sign. Hopefully as long as I take care of the motor I can get a lot of miles out of it. Fun to drive, has a bit of style (a car is a tool to me, but if it's a nice looking tool I won't complain), room for carying stuff (which I have started to need as I get out more). Probably he only SUV I'll ever own. And since I've had it, I have gotten a bit more attention from the women folk, who sem to like it. Shallow, but hey, life is short, and I'm due a bit of fun.

Being a contractor, I drive a diesel drinking monster Dodge Ram 3500 Quad Cab 4X4 I also have a RAM 1500 4X4 short bed for just driving.


It looks like this ... just not as clean with my LOGO info on the doors and a wench on the front.


My wife drive a super smug hybrid that gets 50 mpg to make up for the fact of mine getting about 5. LOL
