    It was! It was an XLT which was top-of-the-line back then. It had oversized wheels and KC lights... it was a total blast to load my 12 space shock mount rack case into.

    My brother had one of those about 1984, and it was the worst car he's ever had too. You occasionally see them at the Mecum and Barrett-Jackson car auctions, rebuilt and finished in the $20k range. I guess some of them didn't rust or burn.

    I had a Bronco II in the late 90s, it was awful, but also kinda cool.

    Ew! Brownies should be chewy, never crunchy.

    A crunchy brownie is the outside of an Oreo. Kind of. Maybe.

    That's fantastic! Does she sell her work?

    Would she finish it in satin?

    Awesome...was listening to this song just the other day after discovering it had been deleted from my files, but still resided on amazon's music page...had to scroll umpteen hundred times to locate the song (listed alphabetically in my file downloads) but FOUND it. Clicked download once again and THIS time, I'll not delete the song when thinning out the flock...

    She does, except this piece is a gift to our daughter. She will only sell satin to blind people who want to appreciate it through braille (It’s a feel thing).

    I did something similar when my son was young. We had his room decorated in a vintage Formula 1 theme. My wife painted a mural on the wall and made checkered flag curtains for the windows and everything. I was in charge of collecting the toys and other memorabilia. I bought a couple of those Schuco wind-up cars. I had one in red and I had one in silver, but I could not find a blue one to save my life. So, I bought another silver car, took it apart and had Paul Miles paint it blue for me. My son, never really cared for the whole vintage car motif, but daddy dug it! I can't find any photos, this was pre-facebook days. Ha

    1974 was the "golden era" for American manufacturing. :oops:

    How about a '74 Pinto with Firestone 500s?
    Totally safe!

    My Dad owned a Ford Bronco back in the late 80s...large, ungainly, gas guzzler...after Dad passed, I used the Bronco to deliver pizzas for a couple months, and realized every darned expectant pizza household could hear my truck coming down the road. Loud behemoth, it was. We eventually sold the Bronco to our auto mechanic who used the front end plow mount/plow to dig out his parking lot when it snowed.
