As I said before, I love Corvairs. They're awesome cars to drive, mostly because they're quite oversteery. Just cut the wheels in, give it some throttle, and drive with your right foot. If drifters knew about them, they'd be a lot more popular now.

You could have just bought this and called it a day.

And in much shorter supply as they write em off by the dozen. Lets just keep it our little secret and let the rest of the world believe Naders bulldroppings. It's one of the very few North American cars I would consider owning.

That's what I was going to ask. We can rattle off suggestions all day, but when it comes down to it the only viable ones will be whatever you can find on your local Craigslist.

What you think the solar system looks like:

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 95

What it actually looks like:

I've never understood the conceit of looking at our universe in a single plane view:confused_face_2:

Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-eight million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.

Analogue, of course.

Well, to be fair, Douglas Adams wrote that line before 1978. The first electronic digital watch (the Pulsar by Hamilton) was introduced in 1970 and the first affordable digital watch (by T.I.) was 1975. wink.gif

I've never been much of watch wearer, although I did go through a phase in 80s & 90s of wearing an analog Mickey Mouse watch. It was just like this one:

I think everybody had a Mickey watch at some point during their childhood if there were born anytime before 2000. I certainly did.

I didn't.

I had a Marvin The Martian analog watch.....much cooler than Mickey IMO.  Then I gave it to a girl that wanted it, and for all that got me, I should have kept the watch. :rolleyes:
