Change of Pace: Slices of Life--Comletely rebuilt vehicle

Every once in a while I'll sneak in something interesting, puzzling or humorous that has noting to do with CL or J. (Warning: I some times have a twisted sense of humor). Anyway, I was leafing through the classifieds to get to the crossword puzzle and "Jumble." I got a quick glance of a classified ad in the autos section that was headlined "COMPLETELY REBUILT, NEW, NEW, NEW, EVERYTHING." Expecting to see an ad for a really neat classic or hot car (e.g, '57 Chevy Bel Air, 2dr hdtp or 68 Plymouth Hemi-Cuda) I went back to the ad. Guess what the vehicle was? 1984 Ford Bronco II 4x4. WT *#$@%! Am I missing something here?


  1. FORD fans will accept just about anything affixed to their favorite logo. Doesn't matter if it's a shoe box full of broken parts. :)

  2. A ride that gets 10-14 mpg . . . I lived through the 50's,60's & 70's driving muscle cars while oblivious to the eventual outcome.
    Denial and nostalgia don't cut it anymore. There are plenty of choices for motorized toys that respect the impending climate impact. Something is amiss when the average weight of the US passenger fleet is over 4000 lb and the European fleet is about 3000 lb.
