My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Just for practice. This was at the closest good Mexican Restaurant tonight.

Ya'll know I updated the rules and said you don't have to post a photo at a restaurant, right?

Eric, I think your truck needs the 'Orange Crush' posing on the hood.

Maybe call it the "One Foot In Club"

Meaning your Ranger has one foot in the grave.

The fun part of it... it can be spun different ways.
Or maybe one foot through the floorboards.

Well, I guess I’m out for at least the next few months… I have no way to get any of mine to a fast food place, so good luck to the rest of you, lol
These days they deliver. Just crank it up and fog out the delivery Uber.

I have a couple thoughts and concerns about both of these calendars

If I buy an old piece of crap, and drive it home, and then spruce it up with my cosmetic genius, can I submit it to both calendars? Asking for a friend

I have another concern about these rusty old things left out in the field. At my vintage, I think it’s very important that these things be demonstrated as still running. No fields for me!

As regards this “getting a picture with the owner in the picture,” my concern would be that any truck I’m standing next to would look great, and wouldn’t qualify for the POS calendar.

I had some other thoughts, but I can’t remember them now. And I don’t know why I walked into the kitchen.

I’m confused…

It's not a field, it's a farm. The funny farm. Ya know? Where they put old goats like us that wander into the kitchen without reason (or at least one we can remember).
