Looks like an updated Z-Car. The front auxiliary oil cooler is a bit clunky though.

Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

Finally made it to yuppie scumdom a few months back and am happily tooling around in a Volvo 240 DL (89 model).  Man, is it a comfy ride compared to what I'm used to.  Girl needs some paint and body work, but otherwise she's straight.

The ultra rare 1966 Mustang pickup, Mustero.  Since it kept the stock Mustang side panels and rear lights, it was pretty stylish.
“Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don’t find out until too late that he’s been playing with two queens all along”.  Terry Pratchett.

During filming of Airplane, Leslie Nielsen used a whoopee cushion to keep the cast off-balance. Hays said that Nielsen "played that thing like a maestro"

Tallulah Bankhead: "I'll come and make love to you at five o'clock. If I'm late, start without me."

"When all other trusts fail, turn to Flashman." — Abraham Lincoln.

"I have enjoyed very warm relations with my two husbands."
"With your eyes closed?"
"That helped."  Lauren Bacall

Master Chiefs are sneaky, dastardly, and snarky miscreants who thrive on the tears of Ensigns and belly dancers.   Admiral Gerry Bogan.

Ford actually built that? Or is it an aftermarket freak show?

The Edsel should have been the car america wanted.
A car freak told me that Henry Ford hated the concept of the Mustang.  After the Edsel bombed, he needed a new vehicle in the competitive american market.  When the Mustang was a huge success, he smiled the whole way to the bank.  Ford produced a lot of Mustang variants.
Beverly Hills Ford produced the Mustero on it's own.
