Do not want.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"what dicking deep shit i produce" -- pillory

Freedom of choice
Is what you got
Freedom from choice
Is what you want

People are shitting themselves to death
Crap so much they fail to take a breath
But even when their kids are starvin'
They thought Trump would throw them Charmin.

It may have looked ok in the water with the wheels submerged, but when you drove it down the street, people would point and laugh and call you an idiot. And rightly so.

Circa 1970, "boat" was also a slang word for a big car. 8)

My father steers our 1966 Rambler Classic station wagon through Sequoia National Park's Tunnel Log in this Kodachrome slide I took on our summer vacation in July 1967. ...
A sweet ride for the kids in the back.

The proper comparison is not with the Corvette, but with one of today's sport fertility vehicles. :)

Igotta tell ya, that really catches my eye. I'm glad they didn't spoil it with a Low Bridge warning.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

I thought that looked familiar.

I'm pretty sure I saw it (not a working model) somewhere. The 1964 Worlds Fair perhaps (though the Wiki article says 1959)?
