Pass the Pabst...cheers !



This is my favorite picture of them all, all that cheap beer! If your from upstate NY  you know this stuff along with Black Label, Utica Club, Gennesee....what horrible stuff it was, yet at the Blue Moon a pitcher was 3.00! I might try to replicate that picture in living color with different beers....
This photo reminded me of when I used to crew on some friends and a coworker's drag cars out at Green Valley Race City (yes, where the GT350 first campaigned).  Back around 1977.  One buddy I worked with had a 427 Chevy (machine work by Reher & Morrison) stuffed in a 1947 Anglia (wicked fast, when it ran).  He and I had just built the car back up after the last breakage.  He backed it half off his trailer and we did the "start it" procedure.  He let it run about 45 seconds and shut it down.  Looked at me and said "get the spark plug wrenches".  We started pulling plugs.  First two plugs, no problem.  I'm taking them out on one side and he's on the other.  All of a sudden I hear him say "well....crap".  I stand up.  Coolant is NOT supposed to be squirting out the spark plug hole!  He looks at me.  He looks in the back of his truck at 2 cases of Bud and two coolers of already iced down Bud.  He looks at me, hands me a $20 and says "we don't have enough beer".   I did his beer run then me and some of his other buddies got the Anglia back on the trailer.  Another of his friends got his keys so he couldn't drive home without someone thinking he was safe.  I think they let him sleep it off there at the track.
Next morning (Saturday) I was at work (We all worked auto parts sales) and the manager looked at me and asked me where the assistant manager was (the Anglia).  I sort of stammered and bit and then said "well, see.....the car broke getting off the trailer".  Manager understood.

thats where they installed the rust!
Some where some one is driving their collector car for the last time but they don't know it . Drive your car every time like it could be the last memory of it .

Love Panteras, but that is why I will probably never own one. All that folded monocoque steel.  :-\

Ladies and gentlemen we give you the safety car....
These cars are meant to be driven, so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all clean. Carroll Shelby

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.
