There's a Lincoln Mark VIII running around here that's lowered on Bullitt wheels with a muffler delete. It's got me feeling some kind of way.

Yep. Ten years ago we went to see The Fratellis when they were having their 15 minutes.

Fantastic show totally ruined by maybe 30% of the crowd being drunken idiots.

And I was still in my 40s at the time.

I was just given a rather rough 99 accord. It runs and drives, but no ac, drivers window doesn't work, interior is bad, and engine light is on. I do t have anywhere to put it without asking someone else. I don't know what to do with it. I'd fee slightly guilty just selling it but not sure why. 
Maybe I get some pictures and offer it up as challenge fodder if anyone is looking for a wild road trip. 

Picked up the biscuit a bit ago. I'm pretty sure he told me it was a 99 civic auto. It's actually a 99 accord 4 cyl manual. It has less miles than I thought at 190k. The drivers window reg is trashed, and the power glass roof doesn't power. Ac doesn't do cold. There's an engine light and a maintenance light. Also the brakes are loud. 
 

And I think the Mercury just landed on the chopping block.

Having not seen the thing before driving it home, he had me under the impression that it was a lot rougher. I mean, it needs a thorough douching, but it's straight and rust free. And I have a thing for 90s accords.

I bought a 12 year, 2 generation old driving game solely on the information that they actually included a licensed dodge Monaco.

Relevant confession: I don't get concerts. Let me spend a E36 M3load of money to deal with a bunch of drunken idiots and listen to a band that potentially won't play the songs I really want to hear and also will likely sound worse.

When I was younger, I could tolerate the drunks and other idiots better, but sometime in the last ten years or so, that ended.  I still go to concerts, but only ones where I am reasonably sure the fans will be well behaved.  Unfortunately, it means I've missed out on some acts I'd really like to see.  Also, I prefer to know if the performers have a reputation for putting on a good show, so I can decide whether it is worth it over just listening to their music at home.

Edit:  man, I feel old thinking about the above versus when I was a teenager and got a beer poured on me in a fight over a drumstick the drummer tossed into the crowd...at a Starship concert.

I don't understand dudes. I've been watching police videos, because I find them fascinating. One constant is dudes getting hemmed up for talking nasty to "underage" girls online. 

 

Now here's what I don't get. When are people gonna learn, if a girl talks to you online, gets all nasty at outset, and wants to meet, it's probably a dude. Underage or not, dude. Have people not learned this by now?

There was a blues brothers themed mission. 

 

I was just impressed at the breadth of cars in the game. I find myself wishing for a E36 M3box racing game on the regular. Like regular ass used car lot cars. Like an old Altima or a Camry with three hubcaps, and working your way up grid style. 

 

I stumbled across video of the game on question and it featured the Monaco, and subsequent reviews said it was pretty good for the series. And then it turned out to be completely delisted and only available on physical media, so I had to have one. I've only been impressed thus far. Everything from a w body Impala (is that the w?) To a Lamborghini jalpa and an absolutely hilarious cross section in between. 

 

The game? Driver: San Francisco. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone that can find a copy.

Secret confession.  I secretly laugh out loud anytime someone starts a thread with, let's please have a civil conversation while secretly setting the table to berate anyone that challenges their personal views.  It's dishonest and hilarious all at the same time.  
 

If you are not prepared to have open honest discourse, don't ask someone to play by your predetermined rules and wishes.  That is neither open or honest.  
 

One of my core beliefs is everyone is wrong at times including myself.  You have to prove it though.  Another core belief is just because something is legal or illegal, that doesn't make it morally right.  And last core belief I will share today, things that work for you and others may not work for me, etc.  Every situation in life is individual and different.  
 

Have fun and keep the shiny side up....  shiny lol
