My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Some people should be hung. Look close.

Nope. It was all Ford. The driver said the owner prefers Chevy. That's the story I got.

Agreed. Built LS would be admirable. But simply slapping a bowtie over the oval? Nah.

I'm terrible about getting my phone out to take pictures. But yesterday here in town I saw what I believe was a dodge magnum that was converted to a pick up. Looked like it was done well but there was no badging on it. If I see it again I will be sure to get a picture.

I once saw a mercury bobcat ( mercury’ version of the pinto ) with a chevy emblem on the grille, had been so long since Id seen a mercury bobcat that I wasnt sure what I was seeing at first.

I’m so happy that van body and cab over pick ups never caught on. Regular ones are bad enough to work in as they are.
