If this scene doesn't make you laugh, you're one of two things. A miserable old grump or, well, dead.
LOL! Somehow I can't imagine that old school with solar panels on the roof, bamboo siding and blacked-out energy efficient windows.For some reason, "public" schools love the idea of tearing down the old and building new. "Progress", don't ya know...
We're just old curmudgeons resisting change. Bunch of deplorables clinging to our guns, religion, and memories.
The excuse for tearing down a lovely old school building here was that it wasn't earthquake designed...
The "patina car" appears to be a '71 or so basic Torino. Dunno how that happened. Jimbob brainfart, most likely. Joe ain't got nuthin' on me. C'mon, man!The little chrome snake? If I had one back then, I'd have probably removed it...sleeper, always better as far as I'm concerned.
Isn't that "patina" car a newer Torino or something? Please forgive my ignorance. My Mustang was my first Ford purchase since I dumped a 1960 Ford.
I noticed they avoided saying the price in that video...so, I'd venture it's less than this well refurbished but NOT restored to original 1967 911S. Still no regrets on selling my '72 (Generally recognized as the most desirable S) for a very much mere 5 figures friend's price. I rest easy knowing that my car is forever out of the grasp of the flippers and pimps like some of those commenting on this auction.

As for today? Whatever gets me to my favorite poolhall and back home...if it ever reopens. The mustang is a car I can park behind the pool hall, then walk in without looking back. Can't do that with either the Cobra Torino or that 911S...both have reached the point of not really being cars anymore.
Pull up your post on "Edit," hit "Preview," position the cursor just to the right bottom of the far right pic, then hit the backspace button. Hit "Save."You are forgiven...post in peace.
On another topic entirely, the pool world has been saddened with some bad news. Always bad news it seems.
Billiards Star Jeanette 'The Black Widow' Lee Diagnosed With Terminal Cancer (tmz.com)
Jeanette probably the most recognized of all pool players by those outside the pool world. This brought me a memory of a long ago article I enjoyed. I believe in Sports Illustrated, but memory could be off on that. The writer would often go to a bar that had it's top dog of a player. Evidently this top dog a bit of a bragging type. So, with Jeanette's help, they set the guy up. Jeanette in disguise as a bimbo, they cleaned his wallet. All in good fun, the guy got his money back...but perhaps he learned something? I saved a pic from the article...

(edit) sorry, dunno why the two pics and couldn't figure out how to delete just one.
Heard those boys in the northern counties want to break away and start a new state called "Jefferson." Wonder if they will?A mighty fine pickle raid, Jimbob.
Loved Paul Harvey's tribute to our founding fathers. Evidently, some in the great state of Californicate disagree...striking the names of Lincoln, Washington, Jefferson, and other founding fathers from high school names.
