The Grand National is about the only car of that type / generation that I would ever consider remotely appealing

DEEP FRIED WORMS
Rancho Gordo: Experiments from my mostly New World kitchen and gardens: Deep Fried Worms

This post may not be for the weak and sensitive. Last week in Mexico I enjoyed a plate of gusano del maguey, or worms, as we say in English. I felt I was being very brave by eating them but to be honest, they were delicious and easy to like.

cleaning out my shop to make room for a new project I found this in a closet. I had picked this up 40+ years ago in a building Worldwide Divers had just moved out. their name in the new location was changed to Oceaneering International. just a little bit of local history.

All I ever find is dirt, spiders and crap that I wonder why I saved.

believe me, there was a truck load of junk I had to move to get to it. and this is in just a 10x10 area of a 30'x60'+ building. not only things I wonder why I saved but things I have no idea how or where I got them.
