Nothin' like a little pre game hype to increase viewership, Jimbob. And perhaps after winning the supebowl, Baker should contact Toni Basil for a little help on his dance moves? Sorry for the radio silence...we had a power outage here. Probably because of the wind & rain storm.

Maybe she could train a Brown's cheerleading squad? She has a one hit wonder that reached #1 on the pop charts...in Europe, not here. She donned her old Las Vegas High cheerleader's outfit..at age 38 or so for the dance number. Yeah, guess you could say I'm developing a late crush on an older woman...she was born two months before me. So, here she is, probably cheering for the Browns...

Toni Basil "Hey Mickey" Music Video - YouTube

(edit again) Thinking about it, maybe learning to dance well could help pro athletes...dancing is athletics of a sort, and good balance is a must...would help with balance if nothing else.

Big M joins the muscle movement!

In the 50's the name was used to tempt buyers into going for the beefIer engine options, but in the middle of 1963 it came back as a whole new car. The Marauder was full-size, weighed two tons, but was set up to make a serious mark in racing and embarrass the daylights out of muscleheads driving other brands. It flattened Pikes Peak and made NASCAR sit up and take notice.

A shiny 390 provided 300 h.p. and could be equipped with either automatic or a 4-speed. Gluttons could opt for the big 427, which came in two flavors, 410 and a very thirsty two 4-barrel with 425 h.p. These beasts were available with the 4-speed only. Bucket seats and
console added to the sporty flair and the new fastback roof made air slide by like water off a duck's back. And its trunk was big enough for all those trophies!

Sadly, it ran just three years and didn't return until 1969. And then it only lasted for two years and wouldn't be seen again until far in the future, even then only lasting two years (2003-2004). But those lucky enough to own any one of them had something special to tell their grandchildren about. Here's the one that started it all. Here's today's...

Considering the year, a fine lookin' car there. Hey, if it was good enough for Parnelli....;)

The car in the video? Let's just say I disagree with the tires/choice. But 'spose that could be easily changed...

Parnelli wouldn't drive no junk. I agree with you on the tires/wheels.

Hard to find a '63 Marauder vid worth a hoot. That was the best. The others were a joke. Hooptie wheels, Ghetto Green lowriders with wild silver stripes, tubbed out rat rods... Pure BLASPHEMY!

The black one with the proper sized torque flights, blackwalls....very nice. Especially if full sized muscle is your cup of tea.

Not tea. More like double caffeine expresso. I've always been an advocate of "bigger is better." Why bounce around when you can go fast in comfort? If I want to be one with a machine I'll buy a robot maid that grants sexual favors. 👀 :giggle:

That's Torque Thrusts. I agree. Those wheels would make a Smart Car look cool. Well, maybe not.

Marauder, Strike Two...

As previously mentioned, in 1969 Marauder returned for a two-year run. This time it arrived in the form of a gigantic Coke bottle cruising down the Mississippi, cleverly disguised as a barge. The new name, X-100 replaced S-55, but the shiny 390 was still around, for those too timid for the monster motor. But, nearly all second-generation Marauders were equipped with the huge 429, which pumped out 360 horsepower that could snap the strongest of necks and make kuties scream louder than Beatlemania chicks. Bucket seats returned, with diamond-tufted leather plush enough to put a smile on even bonny Prince Charles' glum face (No, it was not "Corinthian"). Marauder sales never reached anything close to flapjacks, thus the car vanished again after 1970. Here then, is today's...

RANDOM CLASSIC!

429 cu. in. V-8, 360 h.p. @ 4600 rpm






In case you're wondering, a fully-equipped X-100 weighed in at 4,500 lbs. :oops:

Yep, it's a tad on the fugly side. One thing they did that I liked was the rear end --- taillights are cool and I liked how on some they painted the whole trunklid, taillight area and inner tops of the rear quarter panels flat black in contrast to a lighter body color (see pic below). Other than that... fugly.



To be honest, AMC tried the same trick five years eariler in '65. Mercury just took it a step further.

Nope. Colorado in the USAF.
The grunts on the ground loved your flyboys, especially when they'd swoop down like bats out of hell in those F-4 Phantoms and drop a load of hurt on the VC. What was your MOS? (Military Occupational Specialty).
