Are those Triumph factory alloys on the front? Very odd combination.

Custom slammed vintage truck.

No low-ballers. I know what I got.

Ok, fine, here's a far superior song in Family Guy. https://youtu.be/Xoq1RtpOPUY

No joke here, I think it's genuinely very good.

I totally sang the wrong song in my head when I read the first line... my mind went to Milk Inc.

Heh. This predated all the pissed-off Jeep fascias by a good 10+ years.

My two closest family members are now two-shot fully-vaccinated, and I'm on that track myself. Will still wear a mask, as there's still that 1-3% gap in efficacy, and I've gotten so used to wearing one, it's not a big deal... but now I'll feel more comfortable shopping, perhaps actually eating out at a restaurant, and (this is a big one) flying up north for my father's memorial service, which was postponed by a whole year. I'll be fully vaccinated, +2 weeks, by that point, thankfully.

Still in my current job. Stopped working remotely months ago. I have my own office, and my employer has enacted some pretty rock-solid social-distancing, sanitizing and PPE standards that almost everyone is following very well. I actually feel safe at work.

Not going out to eat, not going out to shop, heck, not travelling in general, has saved me a nice chunk of change... some of which I've used to do some "retail therapy" online, to retain some semblance of sanity. Wimbles is very familiar with the types of purchases I've been making... let's just say, I pretty much own almost every Tomica I've ever wanted now.

It just boggles my mind that both Toyota and Ford, around this time, were on the cusp of creating a production minivan... but executives, managers, accountants and product planners were too gun-shy to pull the trigger.

What also vexxes me is how, when Mopar finally had the guts to do it, and had immediate acclaim and success, how did it take other automakers so freaking long to catch-up? Rather than "band-aid"ing the situation with converted commercial vehicles at first, Toyota and Ford could have looked to their '70s concepts and built off of the R&D done with those.

Heck, AMC could have imported the Espace almost immediately! Maybe that might've staved off Mopar's takeover.

Looking at it with fresh eyes after all these years... mmm... yeah, that's still damned pretty. As much as I still like the screaming chicken decal, that shade of blue really is a stunner. It's the star of the show.
