    I owned a Chevy Vega ...
    Then some guy turned it into a Funny Car.

    I owned a Ford Pinto...
    It stalled on the Railroad Tracks one day and got hit by a train...
    Yes... it exploded.

    I owned an AMC Gremlin. I don't remember why.
    I turned it into a Field Car. We used to drive it thru the woods and party inside it. :lol::p:twisted:

    I owned a Chevy Fiero. The engine blew up. After The car was replaced with another Fiero... Its engine blew up also.
    Since the Gas Tank was under the drivers seat I took it as an omen, I just cashed out the buy and got a Grand Prix.

    I owned a 64 Nova. It was chopped and had a bigger engine put into it. I flipped it over while flying over a Railroad Crossing Hump. We parked it next to my 81 Eldorado, which got totaled out when a drunk driver plowed into me. The Eldo really took a hit for me.

    I owned three Corvettes. One had ratted out brake lines. The cost to redo them was insane. So I parked it in the back 40 and we used to party in it.

    I once hit a telephone pole with my Delta 88. It chopped the pole in half and I just kept driving. They don't make em' like that anymore.

    I used to own two Buick Electra 225's.
    DUECE AND A QUARTER BABY.
    Detroit leaned in those bad boys.
    One was Pink Champagne Sparkle.
    The other was Midnight Blue.

    I owned a Nash SUICIDE Door Sedan.
    I had my Roadie Bodyguard drive me to gigs in it.

    And yes...I made him wear a Cap while driving me.

    In the last years of his life Pablo Picasso paid for everything with a check.
    The reason, because the check had his signature, no one would cash
    the check.
    Benjamin Franklin would sometimes pee while standing on his head.
    Why, he had kidney stones and doing this lessened the chance of a stone
    lodging in his urethra while peeing.

    Some of you, okay, most of you play your Tele better than me. Hope it was okay to state a fact on this thread.

    I and many others are just pretending to like your dog or baby because otherwise everyone will think we’re sociopaths

    I left the scouts after a physical altercation with the scoutmaster. I was two merit badges shy of Eagle rank.

    The Berlin Wall was not has tall as many people assume it was-- just under 12 feet.

    Back when it existed, I don't know why, I figured it was like 15-20 feet tall.

    I touched the Berlin Wall before it came down.

    Here's some writing on the wall, near "Checkpoint Charlie." I went to Berlin three times--and from my recollection, writing / graffiti on the Wall was very rare; you were supposed to stay some distance back from it (maybe 5-10 feet as I recall?) but you know, people gonna people.

    A Boy Scout Story:

    I went to a Boy Scout Jamboree in Goshen, VA when I was 13, back in 1972. ( First Class was as far as I made it)
    Our Troop was there say, 4-5 days, camping. Hundreds of Scouts everywhere!

    One of the fun activities Scouts did was a rope swing ( maybe attached to a strong tree limb? ) on a hill on the shore of a lake. You grabbed the rope, jumped off a perch, swung over the water, let go, splash!

    I managed to do this on my first time, but because I was overweight ( still!) and weak I couldn't hold onto the rope long enough to reach the water, and 2nd attempt barely hit the water; 3rd time, fell on the rocky shore ( Thump! Thump OWWW!!!!!), and my legs got all cut up and bruised, had to go to First Aid tent.

    Nothing major, but very embarrassing!

    We would later go on Survivor Trail hike for one PM and night, make lean-to shelters in the rain, (no tents allowed), eat weeds, and cooked 1/2 chickens ( burnt and raw) over a big campfire while it was pouring- everything soaked!

    Thank God for smuggled Pop Tarts!

    I lived in Berlin as a small child. My dad was stationed there. I don’t remember anything about it really, except for the wall. I remember seeing it. I didn’t know what it was, or why it was significant at the time. But I remember what it looked like. I also remember my dad saying we could see Checkpoint Charlie from our apartment window.

    Much later, in high school, the lead guitarist in my first band was a German exchange student. We were sitting class when the A/V kids starting wheeling TV carts into all the classrooms. Teachers were plugging them in and turning them on. The wall was coming down. Mark was sitting right next to me. He was just staring at it, jaw slack, totally silent. When he finally regained his faculties he started crying and asked to go home and call his family in Hamburg. Being with him in those moments and seeing his reaction really drove home the magnitude of that event.
