Better to see it in a picture that you can quickly look away from rather than being exposed to the wheels while your driving down the road. Extended exposure for prolonged periods of time behind a car bearing these bad boys... Scarring.

Since I seem to be on the topic of posting off the wall stuff here... found this while trying to find an unmodified gen 7 in car show videos

https://youtu.be/u5RG5qKGSfY

So far all I've managed to find is the reflection of the rear end of a 7th with the sport appearance package. The guys filming a corvette and doesn't even bother doing even so much as a 360 pan shot! Basic photography knowledge!! :-D

Also found a 7th gen commercial if your interested:

The ONLY thing on that gold Impala that is even somewhat appealing is the paint.

That's it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The rest just plain silly.

IMO that is.

Some things are better left unsaid, which I generally realize right after I have said them.

I agree, Little bit over the top I'd say! I'd be curious to see what's been done with that car over time. Probably just got shipped around from car show to car show. Gonna guess it hasn't been some dudes daily driver!

As one of the few Canadians on here I realize some of you have seen our Prime Minister Justine Trudeau in the news lately. He is a fucking total asshole , dipshit snowflake that makes me want to puke. Do not judge Canadians by this piece of shit. From my cold dead hands.

Your talking CATapillar right ?

I think it may be time to use the big trunk in the back of the 83 Caprice,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Again !

New tarp, shovels, bag of lime, your Carpenters and Manilow 8 tracks and trip back to the Chilliwack corn fields.

We are going to have to find another place soon however especially if there are some cabinet members.

Yesterday morning I bought two six packs of beer from Costco Liquor Store. I placed them on the front seat.

I stopped at the service station where a drop-dead gorgeous “player” (nurse I think) was filling up her car at the next pump.



It was warm and she was wearing tight shorts and a light top that was wide open.

She glanced at the beer, bent over and knocked on my passenger window.

She said, in a sexy voice, “I'm a big believer in barter, old fellow. Would you be interested in trading sex for beer?"



“Old Fellow???”

I thought for a few seconds and asked, "What kind of beer you got?"

On first day, God created the dog and said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past.

For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years."

The dog said, "That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?"

And God saw that it was good

On the second day, God created the monkey and said, "Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span."

The monkey said, "Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform.

How about I give you back ten like the dog did?"

And God, again saw that it was good.

On the third day, God created the cow and said,

"You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family.

For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years."

The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?"

And God agreed that it was good.

On the fourth day, God created humans and said, "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years."

But the human said, "Only twenty years?

Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back and the ten the dog gave back;

that makes eighty, okay?"
"Okay," said God, "You asked for it."

So that is why for our first twenty years, we eat, sleep, play, and enjoy ourselves.

For the next forty years, we slave in the sun to support our family.

For the next ten years, we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren.

And for the last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

If you want me I'm on the front porch waiting for Les
