OT, but love that Depression-era car too. My dad, in his '80s, tells tales of how they would carry a stack of tires and tubes with them on long trips because it was routine to go through four or five in a few days. But, there were also lots of little gas stations everywhere, and everyone could patch a tube and get you going again.

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.
For sure-- my observation is that if someone has to make a big to-do, there is probably a reason.

The first thing I noticed on the photo was the rider's heel about to make good friction with the asphalt. That say ouch!

Considering how many times the second coming has failed to happen, I'd say he's still out riding.

Do people see the cameras there and all of a sudden they loose their minds and cross the line? Just to scary of a road for me to consider riding. Some yahoo is buzzing through these turns in his POS toyota/honda wanna be racer smiling for the camera and squish.
