sweet rides and fast rides

Spent the day at a classic car show and a street fair.

best car ever - 72

There is something about a 72 (or ’70 or ’71) Chevelle SS that really gets my motor running, to make a weak pun. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: “You know how some guys feel when they see a picture of some big breasted chick with her legs in the air and a “take me” look on her face? You know how some women feel when they see a pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes on sale at Neiman Marcus? That’s how I feel when I see this car. No, I don’t want to fuck it, but I just might rub up against it in a sexual fashion, given the chance. Oh hell, if it had a dick, I’d fuck it.” I will own one some day. Mark my words.

On the other hand, that is one ride you will never get me on. I’ll take pictures of things that go round in the sky, but I won’t board one.

Pictures from today here, if you are interested in fast cars or random pictures of carnival rides. I think I took a good batch of shots today.

We are still so wrapped up in getting the house finished that I don’t have a hell of a lot of time for writing (and I really wanted to spend some time responding to Kevin’s video game post). But I did have a dream last night that I was back in 1976 and it reminded me of something I previously wrote, so here it is.

Things I loved about the 70’s:

Best Album Cover/Title

Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention – Weasels Ripped My Flesh

Most Pretentious Album That I Claimed To Fully Understand But Realized Later On That The Influence of Drugs Had A Lot To Do With That

Genesis – Trick of the Tail

Best Album That Was The Gateway To My Love For Satanic Heavy Metal


Superstars of the 70’s. This box set came out in 1973. Which is kind of weird. Three years into the 70’s and they’re already putting out a four disc set of the decade’s superstars? The people at Warner were either very hopeful or manipulative marketers. These are the bands you will love for the next seven years! But it had Paranoid by Black Sabbath on it and I wore a groove in that vinyl listening to that song a hundred times a day.

Best Reading Material

Creem Magazine. They fed my Kiss craziness and my Robert Plant fetish for many years.

Best Movie That Ended Up, Years Later, Costing Me Thousands of Dollars in Plastic Crap and My Respect For George Lucas

That was kind of obvious.

Most Awesome Car EVER.

That’s a 1970 Chevelle SS. Mine would be in black, but you get the idea. That right there, ladies and gentlemen, is the ultimate in automobiles. It’s the car I’ve been dreaming about since I first got my license back in the dark ages, and the car I will some day own. Mark my words. That’s not just any muscle car, kids. That is a piece of art. You know how some guys feel when they see a picture of some big breasted chick with her legs in the air and a “take me” look on her face? You know how some women feel when they see a pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes on sale at Neiman Marcus? That’s how I feel when I see this car. No, I don’t want to fuck it, but I just might rub up against it in a sexual fashion, given the chance. Oh hell, if it had a dick, I’d fuck it.

Greatest Sports Moment That Never Fails To Elicit A “Fuck Off And Die” When Mentioned To A Red Sox Fan:

Bucky Fucking Dent. October 2, 1978.

“Deep to left! Yastrzemski will not get it! It’s a home run! A three-run homer by Bucky Dent! And the Yankees now lead by a score of 3-2!” – Bill White

One of the greatest moments of my entire life.

The One Photo I Have of My Formative Years That Doesn’t Make Me Look Like A Wannabe Hippie


It’s all about the boots. Because it sure ain’t about the denim.

Best Recreational Drug of the 70’s

Bless the 70’s. I had the time of my life.
