That's the olde english posh Royal Air Force type of speech.
In Yorkshire it would be "Arl si thee"
God bless you.
Ta muchly, thar reyt kind.
You're welcome, conny.
I say ol' Chappies, tip o' the bowler to the blokes who appreciate all the old iron ! As a youth I thought the world revolved around only Fords, then I got me bum blistered by some of the other brands while drag racing against them.
As said before, most of the cars were contrite lemons but each brand turned out a few exceptions that could eat your lunch and serve ya a nice cocktail before you caught up to them. Just pick out the ones that had the good ideas and if it pleases your eye go for it. I likes the surprise packages, cars what hide their potential in a Grandpa's car visage. Like a 71 four door hardtop 98 Olds that snuck out of the factory with a W-30 heart capable of 10 second quarter miles box stock. Or a honkin' big 72 Merc Marquis that came with a 429 Cobra Jet. Old cars what can give a muscle car owner those priceless "WTH?" looks as you pull away from them whilst twiddling with the radio knobs. Age an' deception do have their merits. Don't dismiss any of the older cars, you might love what you find in any brand.
Razzing people about brand loyalty, or lack there of, flows thru the car community like blood.
Very few take it seriously, it is just a bit of friendly rivalry.
Hear Hear! I definitely used to be Ford only, then I opened up slightly for the 68-72 Cutlass flavors. But as I've grown and the cars on the road turned into lifeless jellybeans, I've developed a deep admiration for almost any of the oldies, all the way back to the 20's. The Duster, the Dart, and the Nova are still tough sells for me though. I admit it. I love old cars.
Some take it far too seriously, to the extent they dismiss any other marque.
Maybe it's just a UK thing, but I've spoken to old duffers at shows who think anything other than an MG is a pile of crap, just don't mention the Triumph Spitfire to them !
ANYWAY, here is a photo that sorta keeps with the Fishmouth topic this thread was founded on.
I was sent this by a member in a PM. It shows Thanksgiving festivities at another members house back in the late 50's. No, that isn't Ribald on the right (maybe).
Bet it was more fun before indoor plumbing - Don't ask, I don't know how it turned out.
just thought of this old thread.............
Arrrrrrgh, she's a classic alright.
Love the Thanksgiving pic. Classic.
Yep...a true classic...
Just like you are CJ. And Sean, and me, and, gosh, everyone.
