So, getting the thread up early today, I've got a busy day with one of the Big 3 visiting. Today, let's be honest. It was just valentines day, and as we all know, nobody is perfect. We all have that favorite. The greatest car EVER. except... it has one thing wrong. It could be nothing. Like the 10 with Man Hands, or the low talker - there's at least one thing that while you're happy to look past, you'd love to "fix".
So - your favorite car that you've owned/spent lots of time in and what was wrong with it?
With Brian referencing Helen Lovejoy, I can't believe I haven't seen this here. I give you, the Frinkiac. 3 million Simpsons screencaps, searchable and "meme able".
Earth, Wind & Fire founder Maurice White, whose horn-driven band sold more than 90 million albums and made hits like "September," ''Shining Star" and "Boogie Wonderland," died Wednesday at his home in Los Angeles, his brother Verdine said.
White, who was 74, suffered from Parkinson's Disease and had retreated from the public even as the band he founded kept performing.
"My brother, hero and best friend Maurice White passed away peacefully last night in his sleep," Verdine White, also a member of the band, told The Associated Press on Thursday. "While the world has lost another great musician and legend, our family asks that our privacy is respected as we start what will be a very difficult and life changing transition in our lives. Thank you for your prayers and well wishes."http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory/earth-wind-fire-founder-ma...
Great, great musician. I'm going to play September, Shining Star, and Sing a Song on Rocksmith today in tribute. (Yeah, I need the Rocksmith training wheels to play guitar.)
I took tuesday off because of that whole crootin' thing, which went pretty well. That said, here's our weekly car thread. I don't have a good question today, what questions do folks out there have about cars? How about $1.75 gas? Did you buy a bigger vehicle because of it?
What's your favorite TV or Movie car? Would you own it? With or without its magical powers? (EG, you'd love to own the General Lee, but it has to be indestructable or no deal or, You actually had a black TransAm with the license plate "KITTTTT" and you swear it talked to you once).
No talking about recruiting or ethics here, let's talk cars. The more obscure the better. Would you rather have Jake Ryan's 944 from "16 Candles"? or the U-Boat 928 from "Risky Business". These are the important questions of our time!
