    So turns out my neighbor has an E-type, looks mostly original. This neighborhood was just classed up about a billion notches.

      I'm discovering more and more cool stuff in my hood too. A Sunbeam Tiger, 4 door convertible Lincoln Continental (suicide doors of course) a sweet 912 and Corvette C2 (last two have appeared at Seconds Saturdays). Now to get my Speedster done.

        As the good Mr. Rogers used to say, "Won't you be my neighbor?"

        down the stree from me – a blue late '60's IH Scout. Down the other street – a BMW 2002ti. A bunch of old Chryslers, Plymouths, Fords and Dodges from the '30's and '40's.
        Saskatchewan is surprisingly full of cool old cars.

      My neighborhood lost some class this week… the guy up the street with the mid '60's Cadillac sedan (black with purple flames) decided the grey steelies needed wheel covers which apparently came from the auto aisle at Walmart.

        Offer him a few grand for the car and burn the wheel covers in the middle of the street.

    In a previous career that captain played failsicord in his local failharmonic orchestra.

    That's one strong bridge. Boat bridge, that is.

    Nice to see the Chinese bridges are made out of the same plastics as their toys.

    Was it really necessary to drop the anchor? I mean really!? It's not like it's going to float away. Just sayin'…

    • Van Sarockin October 1, 2011 at 7:09 am - Reply

      The ship's riding pretty high, so it was probably empty. And there's no telling how deep the channel is there, so there might not be any contact with the bottom, much less enough to keep the ship stuck fast. Besides, it looks like the captain has restricted visibility today.

        That being said, it would be hilarious to see that bitch floating out to sea with a section of highway saddled over it.
