MMMM… Fastback

MMMM… Fastback

I’ve actually driven an old Shelby Mustang back in the day. I worked at a body shop, and a Shelby had to be delivered, and I was a worthless scut  worker, so I was elected. I was only 16 or 17 at the time. It had a floor shift, of course, but I’d driven three on the tree, so a clutch held no terrors for me. It had one of those white and powder blue color schemes that screams Shelby Mustang.

I’ll tell you something. It was a full time job keeping that car from launching itself into orbit. Steering didn’t matter, because you can’t turn the wheel five degrees off straight ahead and hope to live. I just wanted to keep the car on the ground, and I couldn’t do it. It left rubber in every gear, every time. It literally hopped forward like a rabid leopard when you stepped on the accelerator. To this day, I have no idea how either the car or I survived the trip. But it was a gas.

I Guess I Want An Infinity Mirror Guitar

I Guess I Want An Infinity Mirror Guitar

I didn’t wake up this morning wanting an infinity mirror guitar. As a matter of fact, I can’t recall ever waking up and wanting an infinity mirror guitar. To be honest, I’ve never gone to bed while wanting an infinity mirror guitar, either. OK, full disclosure: I’d never heard of an infinity mirror until I saw this video. But right now, you’re damn straight I want an infinity mirror guitar.

And I can’t even play the guitar.

Nissan 350Z vs Porsche 911 vs Um, Er, Ah, Geezuz…

Check out that Volkswagen Golf. Getting it done. It’s an important lesson: You never know what people have under the hood. You gotta be careful of the low-key guys. In the same spirit, never pick fights with little guys in bars. They always seem to know Jiu Jitsu or Karate or Kung Fu or some other oriental words.
