The Mighty Mighty Bosstones at one of the seemingly last Hometown Throwdowns

Nice to know there's another of the plaid-clad society out here! Too bad I haven't heard much from 'em lately, I'd love to catch them live again. . .

"Question the Answers" is standard equipment in the 944's CD player.

I now carry my small digital with me in the car every where I go for just this reason. I think those are RUNNING BARS for a Ford Expedition! Also note, the stylish "Crown Vic" tag on the front. Love it. One more to follow.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.

I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul!

The seats, dash and rear deck panel were all in the same Yellow as the Landau (sp?) top. Nice work my man, nice work.

This pic was taken in Yosemite seconds before I ran down these deer, killed them with my bare hands and ate their hearts: mmmmmmmmm, good.

Whoa man, that's a little harsh, it's a life style just like anyother.

Look at all those lifted trucks with 35" tires that never see dirt.
Or look at all those Integra's that are not "Type R" but yet say it on every other Integra you see.

There are many examples out there of different life styles out there. One car enthusiats (if you indeed are one) should never judge another for his taste.

I was fortunate enough to catch them a number of times some at the Throwdowns in Boston through the years and one on New Years Eve a few years back. They were/are one of the best bands to see live.

They are officially on hiatus / done. Joe Gittleman is in another band full time now, Avoid One Thing and last I knew Dicky Barrett was the announcer for the Jimmy Kimmel Show. This year would've been the 10th anniversary of the Throwdown, but sadly it didn't happen.

I've got more pics from that particular show if you want them emailed....

Heck no. They were bucks. I'm not gay, you know (not that there's anything wrong with that) . . .

my point is that 99% of all "these cars" have rust so bad half the time my tools fall through the floor, these things are unsafe........i can't tell you how many of them don't have any brakes but have 4k in stereo stuff in them.
it has nothing to do with taste or judging........it has to do with safety and common sense.

I didn't actually take it, my friend did while I was doing a time trial. Late fall, late afternoon, 10 minutes after a 5 minute snowfall (first of the season), NHIS front straight.

went to the new Smithsonian... found an old boxer some pre war airplane company was using for power. Forgot the name of the plane company, could be the one on top of the engine.
