Faces of Death

Alex Trebek:  It’s what brought you face to face with your own mortality, because the asshole pulling out of the Circle K in it was too busy being self important to look to his right before making his illegal left hand turn.

Me:  What is this cargasm [below]?


Smashing baby, smashing.  Well, almost.  Fucker.

1977 Pontiac Firebird Esprit

1977 Pontiac Firebird EspritI have known a few GM F-Bodies in my time:  Pod’s Trans Am, Phid’s Camaro Berlinetta.  The Firebird “Esprit” is a different sort of catch.  We thought they were cool in the ’70s, even with the automotive equivalent of a comb over, the front half vinyl roof.  Not as cool as Trans Ams or Z-28s, mind you, more of a hot secretary kind of cool.

My 7th grade anthropology teacher, Mrs. Kuhn drove one.  This one is a ’77; hers was a ’74-76 version.  Van Halen was right – I had it bad for my teacher.
