Ah, that's right, it's not Icelandic. And not so much contradictory or strange, as just unusual (remember, I'm stuck here in the Backwoods)...

No offense meant... :)

We believe anyone can believe what they want and understand that ALL Americans came from somewhere else at some time.
You're absolutely correct, I came from Chicago.

If someone takes offense to that, they're on the wrong site.

Hopefully that link will work.
You mean this guy?








I looked for an ADVRider sticker and didn't see it. He's got a MOA sticker on the right box. Anyone know this guy?

Anything like this?

Mother of God that's awesome.

To see how one of those Dust Bowl-era migration cars actually looked in modern color... never thought I'd see it. What a treat.

We have a living history WW2 event in my home town every year. If you could see the car in person it's VERY detailed and very cool.
Not WW2 era, but the guy also brings a fully outfitted Willys jeep. So he is more than welcome.

My guess it is a Jew who has converted to Christianity and is about to meet Jesus.

It's on the fender, right below the crossbar on the pannier rack. Helps to have seen it in full res.

Not so odd in my universe.

A Christian + a Jew = .... Me.

Although putting all that shit on your bumper/back is odd in my universe.

And I mostly posted it for the floor board almost being down.

This patch is actually Riders For Christ. Not all of the patch stitching shows up in that photo. It has various symbols related to Christianity.
