    So hard to separate aesthetic beauty from functional beauty. But, if I could have some of them back I'd start here: '66 Corvette Coupe, '70 Lotus Elan, '89 BMW 325IS.....the list goes on and on. This is why I've always been broke. Then came motorcycles and bikes.

    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    I keep looking at that and thinking "is that a perspective issue, or is that just a really big car?"

    About the size of the 1992 F-350 4-door longbed my dad had when I was learning to drive, but the Bugatti is a lot heavier.

    My neighbour runs a custom shop... you should have seen the '33 coupe that was here today.

    With summer here there has been a steady stream of hot rods coming and going.

    I gotcha. The pic has a dark vibe and the car looks like it's about to push through the fence.

    Cutest Unimog I've seen. Used to be a military airport tug.
