BMW M6

This svelte and impossibly blue coupe lurked on the periphery of the Las Vegas Cars and Coffee show. It deserved a more prominent placement. The joy of the hunt for us is lurkers like this.  We don’t know why it’s not in the middle of the show.  we’re just thrilled that we found it .  And happy that it is not some princess who’s too haughty and indulged to mix with the commoners.

1970-73 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am

We’d guessing 1970 because of the  400 c.i.d. engine.  Per wiki, the 1971-73 T/As had a 455. My second cousin Shirley drove one of those 455s. However, we’re skeptical of the “T/A 6.6” on the shaker. It should say “400.” But, they came in white or blue.  We’re also a little leery of the screaming chicken.  That came on-line for 1973.  I guess the verdict is “frankenbird.”  It’s still sexy as hell.

Legal Department (butting in)… well, comedy is something we usually squash a kind of hobby of ours. Well– Well, actually, it’s a little more than just a hobby. Reader’s Digest is considering publishing two of our jokes.
Me:  Really?
Legal Department:  Yeah. And perhaps some night we could maybe get together and swap humorous stories for-for fun.
Me:  Oh, why not? Maybe play a couple of Adele records. That’d be a hoot.

Yay! Free publicity!  Backlinks!  Money raining from the sky! Hookers and blow! Continue reading “#TBT Goooooood morning Deetroit!”
